Compare this aircraft with the Stampe et Vertongen SV.10; same configuration, but the SV.10 looks a bit better. Not to say it was any better at meeting an impossible specification. “Bean counters make poor aircraft designers”

A Belgian take on the French "Miltiplace de Combat" concept. The idea was to develop a single airplane that could carry out all missions: fighter, reconnaissance, observation and bombing. It was an idea that seemed to hold a lot of appeal during the cash-strapped 1920s and 1930s, particularly among the French. In practice, however, it was a goal that proved to be impossible to achieve. As the old saying goes, "Jack of all trades and master of none".

It seems that aerodynamics ignored this aircraft , just like many french prototypes of the 1920s 1930s . She makes me think of the BCR ( multirole ) program of 1930s in France . They should do everything ( fighter , bomber , recco ) , and couldn't do anything
