Hi,

The Bertin HB-12 was a project of large version of HB-11 powered
by three General Electric J85 engines.

A 3-view from the french Icare magazine. The box-like ejectors behind
the engines are for cooling the exhaust and silencing. It's a use of the
same principle, I think, as in the Breguet 940/941.

Line drawings of J. Betin's notional Projet Cygne, French for "Project Swan", aircraft designs. The project explored heavy lift transport designs that could be built using circa 1974 technology.

Jean Bertin (* September 5th, 1917 in Druyes-les-Belles-Fontaines, Département Yonne; † December 1975 in Neuilly-sur-Seine) was a French Aviation Engineer. He studied at École polytechnique & at the École supérieure de l'aéronautique (SUPAERO). His name is famous with the hovercraft train "Aérotrain" developed in France from 1965 to 1977. This project was abandoned in 1977 due to lack of funding, his death, and the adoption of TGV by the French government as its high-speed ground transport solution. In 1955 he started the company Bertin et Cie.
Seems that this company also started a STOL Transporter project.

More will follow... :)

If anyone wonders at the boxes on the wings, they're for mixing the hot exhaust air with cooler before it hits the flaps.

The German text say:

Configuration behind the Engine are Gaschannels with Mixchamber
in them exhaust gas are mix twice before - heavily cooled - hit the twin slotted Flap
during Takeoff and Landing.

Damm, I did type the words "Bertin" & "Aladin" into the search machine, before starting this new topic. Somehow I did't get any results. Over the weekend I will translate and sum up the Flug-Revue article from June 1971.
Jemiba, in that article the Breguet 940/941 is also mentioned.

The principle to achieve STOL via the redirected slipstream of the engines
was the same, I think, and at least for several VTOL designs there was aclose
collaboration between Breguet and Bertin.

The Aladin was proposed in two versions, with high or low wing. But the basic principle
seems to be different, I think. The one of first Aladin reminds me of the thrust augmented
wing of the Rockwell XFV-12.

Here's a drawing of the HB 11 (Hurel-Bertin, as developed in co-operation with Maurice Hurel),
progenitor of the HB 12 and two other Bertin VTOL projects based on Bertins Variflux principle.

On a side note, one of the planned applications of the Aérotrain would have been to service this: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,10414.0.html

The attached picture shows a model of the Aladin 2A exhibited at Le Bourget 1971, from Aviation Magazine 565.

Please what issue of Icare is that ?
