Dear Boys and Girls, here is an article in French about the Chantiers Aéronavals Romano R-120 medium bomber prototype which isn't a "project". The Romano R-120 was one of the losing competitors in the Armée de l'Air's B4 medium bomber contest of 1934. Other B4 competitors included:-

Amiot 350 series (joint winner).
Lioré et Olivier LeO 45 series (joint winner).
Latécoère 570 (loser).
Bloch MB.133 (loser).
Bréguet Br.462 (loser).
Dewoitine D.660 "project".
Farman F.440 "project".
Bréguet-Wibault 660 "project".

The article comes from the 15th March 1967 issue of Aviation Magazine International......

An additional picture comes from the 1st December 1966 issue of Aviation Magazine International......

Can anybody show us, drawings from the Farman F.440 and the Bréguet-Wibault 660?

Dear Moderators, I've just realised that I started this topic in the wrong forum. Please will you move it to the Aerospace forum as it is a real, built and flight-tested aircraft?

According to the forum rules, it would be ok in the projects section, but if you rather like it
here, it's no problem. ;)

Originally posted by Justo Miranda in the now split "Romana R-110/130" topic, was this scan
from an unknown magazine. Athough wearing the title "Romano R-130", it quite clearly is the
R-120.

Actually this article cutout is from AviMag no.463, and was already posted by Caravellarella.
It is a mix of a paragraph about the Romano 130 single-seat lightweight fighter ("chasseur monoplace léger") already posted there:
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12549.msg122997.html#msg122997
and a three-view of the Romano 120, same as posted above.
