Breguet 11 Corsair
The Breguet 11 Corsair was a three engined aircraft with two pushers and one tractor. The two pusher engines were mounted on the lower wing, either side of the main fuselage, in nacelles, each with its own tricycle undercarriage. The three-bay, unequal span wings had ailerons mounted in the upper wings, but despite a favourable test report, the aircraft was declined in favour of smaller models. The 90-ft (27.6m) wingspan was one of the reasons it was declined, but it was felt that the relatively slow speed of the aircraft, 91 mph (149 kph), coupled with its enormous size made it an easy target for anti-aircraft guns.
