Societe Nationale de Constructions Aeronautiques Du Sud Est S.E.2415 Grognard II


A second prototype, the SE.2415 Grognard II, flew in February 1945. A two-seater with wings swept at 32 degrees, it was damaged in a belly landing. Both designs suffered from flutter-induced problems. The definitive production version would have been the SE.2418, which was to have been powered by Rolls-Royce Tay turbojets, but the SO Vautour was selected to meet the Armee de l'Air's ground-attack requirement instead.
