© The Type 73's wheel units were
in alignment with the upper and
lower engines, but the struts
connecting them all were not. An
odd framework gave some
support to the main struts, but
the structure still failed.
© A transport version of the Type 73
was developed as the Type 75
Aerobus transport with a huge
bulbous fuselage. It didn't fall
apart, but only one was built.
© The Type 73 was officially
designated a three-seat night
bomber, but its useful range
with the proposed 1000kg bomb load would
have been negligible.
© The configuration of the Type 73
was similar to earlier models
except the fuselage was under the
wings rather than between them.
The tail was kept in the same
place, hence the odd rear fuselage.
