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.
Jemiba haves a bullseye ... response to a 1934 program by the French l' Etat Major de l'Air for a
'bimoteur de commandement à la chasse' (L'Aviation N° 462)
Not to beat an old hose, but: Was the forward firing armament mobile or fixed? ;),7951.0.html
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:,12613.0.html
- R.120:,12572.0.html
- R.130:,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.
From Aero Journal 44,

here is a drawing to R-110,which led to develop R-111.
