I have recently been reading volume 1 of Andre Hauet's 'Les Avions Caudron'.

It has a number of additions to the types and designations list started by AM in the initial post.

Rather than post a number of disjointed posts I have taken the superb (MS Word) document from AM and updated it with notes in red, where applicable.

No doubt more updates will follow when I get round to read sections in detail.

Volume 1 detailed type information extends as far as the Caudron C.320 designation.

I remember now why I never contributed to this topic... There were just SO MANY additions I could provide that I never got round to doing it properly!

your new list is highly commendable, Cy-27, but I can add quite a few still, so stay tuned... ;)

Just had a quick browse and edited your list in the form of a teaser (only the new designations, not the contents yet... I don't have access to all my archives yet, they're still in my old house...). All in all it's no less than 94 new designations if I'm not mistaken!

Thanks Stargazer!
Is there more information available on that Caudron C260- tailless glider?

My Caudron list is mostly based on the work above by AM, Cy-27, and Stargazer. There have been a few additions but, the main difference is, this list being in more searchable html format. Hopefully that will help get the juices flowing and Members will be able to fill in some of the gaps.

Caudron Aircraft Designations

The first official Société des avions Caudron aircraft designations were alphabetical Type designations beginning in 1910. These were followed (and interspersed) with alpha-numerical 'G' and 'R' series designations. It has been suggested that the 'G' series were thus called because they were primarily the design-work of Gaston Caudron, while the 'R' series designs are credited to René Caudron.

'G' and 'R' series designations are often shown with Roman numeral type numbers. I have shown both Roman and Arabic numerals for the 'G' series. (I believe Roman numerals to be the correct display but, in current literature, Arabic numerals have become more common). For the 'R' series, I have shown only Arabic numerals (Roman numerals were often shown in contemporary literature but not, it seems, by the company). I have also chosen to ignore the fairly common contemporary practice of applying Roman numerals to Caudron 'C' series designations.

The alpha-numerical 'C' series designations are associated with post-WWI Caudron aircraft. As a matter of style, I have stuck with a period between 'C' and type number (although hyphens are also often seen). In this list, I have included the Type 02 as the 'C.02' but it is debatable whether that 1917 fighter belongs in the alpha-numerical series at all.

The first incontestable 'C' series designation was for the C.21 multi-purpose biplane of 1917. Despite that, the C.17 designation was applied to a 2-seat sesquiplane design a full decade later. The simple explanation for this is that the C.17 was probably designated as such to match DB-17, the designation of this Descamps-Brunet design being licensed-built by Caudron.

As will be seen, the 'C' series designation do not represent a linear sequence of Caudron aircraft. Overall 'C' series designations jump around somewhat randomly and are sometimes re-applied several times. Nonetheless, the 'C' series can be traced from the C.21 to at least the C.940 (and possibly to the C.960). Caudron and its designers were nothing if not prolific!

By the early 1930s, Caudron was struggling financially. Chief engineer, Marcel Riffard had been producing an impressive series of light racing monoplanes powered by Renault engines and the head of Renault, François Lehideux, was eager for this to continue. A take-over was arranged and, on 01 July 1933, the Société des avions Caudron became Caudron-Renault - or, more properly, the Société anonyme des avions Caudron. Initially, at least, the use of 'C' series designations was continued at Caudron-Renault. 'CR' prefixes appear later in the literature but most seem to be post-WW2 efforts to rationalize Caudron designations.

The first design to routinely carry the 'CR' prefix seems to be the CR.760, a Isotta-Fraschini Delta-powered extrapolation of the C.714 light fighter. For (perhaps abitrary) continuity, I have listed 'CR' types first as 'C' designations.

So, first up, anomalies and early Caudron designations. The 'C' series designations will follow. As always, corrections and additions gratefully received :)
