"The design had some points of interest: a sliding nose was fitted, so that the pilot had a better view on landing, yet the aircraft would be aerodynamically smoother at high speeds. Elaborate arrangements were also made for enabling the 2 crew members to eject safely."

Something of a familial resemblance to the 53 and 177, so, did SR have a problem with originality?

Ahhh Saro's P187.....

The only design to carry the full weapon load and meet the performance criteria.

What a beast.
