Hi, I found anther project for a jet bomber designed before the SNCAC NC-270 it was
the SNCAC NC-200.
the SNCAC NC-200.
As Jemiba mentioned earlier, there was am NC-110 piece in the Aug./Sept. 2005 edition of Aviation Francais Magazine.Caravellarella said:Hello, would anyone be able to recommend a source for images of the S.N.C.A.C NC.110 at all?
Dear Apophenia, you are not going to believe this! I've just found an article in French with a 3-view drawing of the SNCAC NC.140 stratospheric bomber in the 15th September 1965 issue of Aviation Magazine International. I had to look twice as I couldn't quite believe what I saw. As you suspected, the NC.140 is a blend of the NC.223.4 and the NC.150, but with a massively blended wing-root fairing and a small pressure-vessel type cockpit fairing......Apophenia said:No worries Terry! Having already made my apologies for confusing the NC 140 for the NC 110, I'm in no position to comment :-[
As for the appearance of the NC 140, Green makes it sound like the entire, circular-section fuselage was pressurized. Pure speculation, but I'm envisioning something like an NC 223.4 with an elongated NC 150 fuselage. That's probably simplistic ... the NC 150's single-pilot cockpit would have to go at the very least.
Each of the three desings that took part in the naval fighter competition (NC.1080, VG-90, Nord 2200) was to be armed with three 30-mm cannon. Do you have any idea what type of cannon was envisaged as their armament?Retrofit said:Hesham,
I only find a 3V of the SNCAC NC-1080 naval fighter prototype. But unfortunatly nothing on the NC-1090.
So just in case.
