Fo 105 - November 1937, twin-engine medium civil transport (Napier Rapier)

Fo 106 - November 1937, twin-engine medium civil transport (Bristol Aquila), posiibly to Specification C.15/38

Fo 106A - August 1938, four-engine medium civil transport (Bristol Taurus), posiibly to either C.14/38 or C.15/38 specifications


...now see the pics of the powerplants...


In my opinion the Folland airliner project must be the Fo.105!

Thanks to Schneidermann for the ID of the Folland Fo.106. So we can say this one here is the Fo.105?

I don't think this one is powered by Napier Rapiers, I think that it may be powered by DH Gipsy 12 engines, as in the DH Albatross, which has reverse airflow cooling with large air intakes in the wing leading edge. That would make this another version of the Fo106.
The Gipsy 12 and Rapier were similar sizes but the Rapier required two air intakes above and below the propeller boss.

Many thanks for your explanation Schneiderman.
