For the SE.6000, I drew a blank. It isn't mentioned in Cunys "Les Avions De Combat .." and
not in my other sources, any additional information would be most welcome .

According to Cuny, both the X-106 and the X-107 were designed as subsonic/transsonic
fighter bombers.

The SE.2450 was a design of a heavy fighter bomber/ attack a/c,, but as it seems not in direct
lineage with the Grognard. There were to similar designs, differing mainly in hte engine
installation, one of htem was the SE.2450, the other the SE.1400.

Again according to the "Cunys bible" (anyone who knows another comparable book
about the french postwar aviation ?) the SE. X-108 was intended to be used as an
ocean surveillance /ASW a/c. Several different engine layouts were planned, as was
with the Latécoère 221 to 227 series.
(Especially the drawing of the X-108A should be viewed with some scepticism, as I
had only the drawings of hte J-/BR-version and the written description !)

And the SE.2060 was just the well known SE.2010 transport with two underslung
jet engines of varying types, ATAR or the TF-106, for example.
Not th right stuff for this forum, I'm afraid ;)

Hello Hesham,

I've looked again for the SE.6000, but without success. There are of course cases of the use of one designation number for two types, but this is quite rare. And there are numerous "sources", which don't bother if it is SNCASE or SNCASO. It's just one different letter, who cares ? And in the enthusiasm of the beginning jet age, many new aircraft were credited with the ability to reach the speed of sound, although in fact they just could reach their critical mach number, not quite the same.
So it would be very good, if you could name your sources, it would make it easier to decide, if a mentioned project is really an unknown one, or just a gimmick of a magazine or newspaper, mentioned in three lines between the weather report and the funnies .... For example, it's really funny, what you sometimes can read in the german daily press about the Eurofighter Typhoon ! :D

The X-223 series was, what we nowadays would call drones (avions robot) ,
designed as single or twin engined types.
The X-224, I think, already was mentioned in a thread about the Mirage IV com-
petitors.
All drawings based on Cuny.

" ...SE.600 was two seat reconnaissance

Sorry, I can't find any mentioning of the SE.100 in the lines about the SE.600 there.
It's described as a light single engined (!) reconnaissance a/c. Maybe the "civil" SE.600
was a later attempt to get approval for further development.

Dear Hesham,

I have some questions regarding the SNCASE X-114 project:

1. What engines was the X-114 to have? Do you have any idea whether there was a rocket-engine planned for the aircraft, as was en vogue in French interceptor projects of the 1950s?

2. How were the X-114's dimensions? In the picture that you have posted there is a scale; does it equal to five meters?

And finally, why do you use the word 'intercopter' instead of 'interceptor' (or intercepter)?

Best regards,
Piotr

The scale given in Cunys books are always good old metres. And the text says,
the X-114 would have been an extremely small aircraft of 8,80m lenght and
5,32m span.

Hi

In "LES AVIONS DE COMBAT FRANCAIS 1944-1960 " I : CHASSE-ASSAUT (J. Cuny, 1988, Col. Docavia, Ed. Larivière) (p.121) :

Jet engines for X-114 : only possible for jet engines such as "Viper" and "Farandole".

Ad :
For Viper I found the little Armstrong Siddeley Viper jet of 1750 Ib thrust for the first prototype of the Jet Provost (first flew in the summer of 1954)
For Farandole I found that this jet engine was an evolution of the Viper 10 and the max thrust trials was 1410 kgp in 1956 (cancelled in 1959)


Regards

My dear Jemiba,

You sent to this topic the SNCASE SE X.108 as ASW aircraft,
but in the Internet I found that the SE X.108 was mixed powered
interceptor project,I can't explain this.

Mixed power is correct, at least for some proposed versions of the
SE. X.108, which would have had additional jet engines in the after
part of the inner engine nacelles.
But interceptor probably isn't correct, as long, as we believe in the
pope of the french aviation history.

You probably mean this site : http://www.hydroretro.net/etudegh/sncase.pdf
If so, plesae have a look at page 28, there the X-108 is mentioned as "Avion de haute
mer propulsion mixte", in english, sea surveillance a/c with mixed power propulsion !
The lines before and behind mentiones the X-107 and X-108, both interceptors, but
not the X-108 .... ;)
In pdf files, you can adjust magnification either by clicking the plus or minus button
besides the scale, given in %, or by clicking on the magnifying glass. maybe important,
as pdfs are often opned with just 75 %, quite difficult to read . ;D

Manufacturer's trade-show model of the SNCASE 2410 Grognard, from about 1950. This one came from a small collection in the Oregon countryside, of all places.
