Nord 2200

In June 1946, the Service Technique Aeronautique issued a preliminary requirement for a shipboard fighter armed with three 20mm or 30mm cannon and capable of carrying two 500kg bombs or eight 90mm rockets. Responding to this requirement, the SNCA du Nord tendered the Nord 2200, designed by a team led by Messrs Coroller, Dupin and Buret, in competition with the Aerocentre NC 1080 and the Arsenal VG 90. Powered by a 2268kg Hispano- Suiza Nene 102 turbojet and featuring a 24 sweptback laminar-flow wing with large Fowler-type flaps, the Nord 2200 was first flown on 16 December 1949, and was fitted with neither wing folding nor armament. On 24 June 1950, the sole prototype was damaged and the opportunity was taken to fit a servo control system, introduce redesigned and larger vertical tail surfaces, and make provision for an AI radar scanner over the engine air intake. Flight testing was resumed on 24 May 1951, but in 1952 the decision was taken by the Aeronavale to adopt the de Havilland Sea Venom to meet its shipboard fighter requirement. Nevertheless, flight testing of the Nord 2200 continued until June 1954.
