BTW, the R.110 was a three-place fighter. As far as I know, it should be used
as a formation leader for single seat fighters.

Not to beat an old hose, but: Was the forward firing armament mobile or fixed? ;)

The winner of the 1934 program was the Potez 63.

Dear Boys and Girls, here is an article in French about the Chantiers Aéronavals Romano R-110 3 seat fighter prototype. The Romano R-110 was a losing competitor in the Armée de l'Air's C3 "Triplace de Chasse" 3-seat fighter contest of October 1934. It featured fixed forward-firing Hispano-Suiza 20mm cannons operated by the pilot; and was intended to operate as a control fighter or fighter direction "Bimoteur de Commandement à la Chasse" aircraft. Other C3 competitors included:-

Bréguet 690 series (joint winner).
Potez 63 series (joint winner).
Hanriot 220 (loser) later developed into the SNCAC NC.600.
Loire-Nieuport LN.20 "project" (construction abandoned).

The article comes from the 1st March 1967 issue of Aviation Magazine International......

Maybe this thread should be split and merged into those three others:
- R.110: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12613.0.html
- R.120: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12572.0.html
- R.130: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12549.0.html
I think there is enough interesting info to keep the three threads separate instead of dumping all in a single Romano topic.
Moderators feel free to erase my own message afterwards.
