1203/II Norécrin II


Using the same basic configuration as the Messerschmitt Bf 108, Nord developed the Nord 1200 with fixed tricycle landing gear, whose prototype flew in December 1945 with a 75-kW (100-hp) Mathis G4R engine.

There were several military and civil variants, the main versions to enter civil service being the three-seat Nord 1201 Norécrin I with the 104-kW (140-hp) Renault 4Pei engine, the four-seat Nord 1203/II Norécrin II with the 101-kW (135-hp) Regnier 4L00, the Nord 1203/III Norecrin III with modified landing gear, the Nord 1203/lV Norecrin IV with the 127-kW (170-hp) Regnier 4L02, the Nord 1203/Vl Norécrin VI with the 108-kW (145-hp) Regnier 4L14, and the final Nord 1204 and Nord 1204/II models of 1959 with the 93- and 108-kW (125- and 145-hp) Continental C125 and C145 engines respectively.
