Nord 2200

Nord 2200

National origin: France
Manufacturer: Nord Aviation
First flight: 16 December 1949
Number built: 1

The Nord 2200 was a fighter aircraft developed for France's 1946 requirement for a shipboard fighter. It first flew on 16 December 1949, but it was not selected for the requirement and therefore never produced.

Development

SNCA du Nord (Nord Aviation) developed the aircraft to meet the shipboard fighter requirement which dictated that the aircraft be armed with three 20mm or 30mm cannon and carry 500 kg bombs or rockets. The aircraft was powered by a 22.2 kN (5,000 lbf) Hispano-Suiza Nene 102 turbojet engine and featured 24 swept wings. The prototype aircraft, ultimately the only aircraft built, did not have any armament installed, not did it have the folding wings that would be required for carrier use. The aircraft was damaged on 24 June 1950, and the rebuilt aircraft featured larger vertical tail and space for a radar in the nose over the engine inlet. Despite continuing flight testing until 1954, a variant of the de Havilland Sea Venom, the Aquilon, was selected as the shipboard fighter for the requirement.
