That is perfectly right ! EKW C-3603 !



We can almost say it is a Spitfire nose with a Bf-110 tail... and playing the role of an IL-2 !




Later, it was given to this plane a Pinocchio nose and a turboprop engine...



...and it became the ugly C-3605 with unterminable nose and triple vertical stabilizers... not an aesthetical achievement, but it allows the plane to remind in use until 1987 with the Swiss Air Force (in target tug role)... not bad, for a 1940-1942 design ! anyway... I wish the C-3603 had a place in our favourite sim !

Storebror had it all, but did not name it. Mexchiwa did name it. So... who of you wants to continue ?

Definitely an interesting plane and I must say I somehow like these postwar turboprop modifications.
As odd as they look, the result usually is an extremely powerful kite.

Okay, let's proceed with this one. Took the picture off a book, shopped out the text etc. just to find that the result is available on the net, so it should not be too hard:



Cheers!

This one makes me think about some space version of Captain Nemo's Nautilus:D

Also a top speed of 400 kph, but may have been supersonic at times...

This plane still exists (in a little worse shape) at the Ailes Anciennes Toulouse
