Hi,
We found in our case this plan three seen a draft dated 13/12/1938, for a two-seater fighter, this is apapreil probablmenet the same program that Capra R 40, but the question that arises is why this project came out so early? device of the same program as the Breguet 820.

In fact I do not think this program lours hunter came out in 1938.

If you know more I'm interested.
We still note that apapreil should be equipped with the "legendary" Hispano engine type 89, which was not ready earlier or later than elsewhere.

This plan seems fairly well studied, but lil seems clear that the excesses of ^ dopubles would be very seriously increased. And he has an air of resembalance with Breguet project at the time.

Hmm... but it looks to be 2-seat, so it's not "C.1"!

Hi Redstar72,


in the site,they said that; it was designed to same program as Breguet Bre 820,and in 1938
the two programs single seat and two seat merged to be one program.

With regards to The Trait d'Union, the Breguet Br.820 traces back to the Br.690/700 series and was intended
to be build as single, as well as two seaters. The reason for the single seat derivative may be one mentioned
in the "Airplane Five View Album" by Bernhard C.Klein, posted by Justo here: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,5313.msg42247.html#msg42247, #6,
But the contender for the C.1 competition quite probably would have been a single seat variant, structurally
and aerodynamically not really a great problem, I think.
