Hi Everyone!

I'm very interested in the Grob G850 Strato 2C, (a research aircraft), and I was wondering if anyone had any three-views of this aircraft and if so, could you possibly post them on this website.

I'd like to do some illustrations of this aircraft and possibly a scratch-built model, so any information you can send my way will be greatly appreciated.

I've posted three photos of this aircraft.
Thanks!!!

Chuck Anderson

There was an article in Air International, November 1996 but I don't have the issue. I imagine it might have a 3 view.

Here's the mentioned 3-view from AI 11/96 and, for comparison, the 3-views of the
520 and the D500 from FlugRevue 1/93 and as usual with such drawings, Mike Badrock
clearly is in the lead ! ;D

Here are some more photos:

(Taken from ABpic and Alchetron)

I wonder whether the Strato 2C had any influence over the G600?

Some sources do suggest that the G850 origins pre-date the 1992 DLR requirement and lie in the last years of the Cold War as a spyplane design, likely for SIGINT/ELINT.

Makes sense, considering that the Baltic was a hub of activity during that period, and Germany had some Atlantiques that could have needed replacing. It makes sense, at least, on paper.
