Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Farman F.420 was a twin engine monoplane, built in France in the mid 1930s to compete in a government contest for an aircraft capable of fulfilling bomber, fighter and reconnaissance roles. Two prototypes were constructed but no production followed. In August 1933 the French Air Ministry issued a call for prototypes of a multirole class of aircraft, likely to be ordered in large numbers. The intention was to produce a machine which was competitive as a fighter, bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, so the class was known as BCR for de bombardement, de combat et de reconnaissance. An alternative description was Multiplace de Combat. Eight or nine manufacturers responded with an aircraft: the F.420 was Farman's candidate.show more
