Aerocentre SNCAC NC.701
Aerocentre SNCAC NC.702 Martinet
Production of the twin-engined eight-passenger Siebel Si.204A transport aircraft and Siebel Si.204D military instrument trainer for French and Luftwaffe service began at the SNCAC factory at Bourges in 1942. Post-war SNCAC put the aircraft back into production as the NC.701 (Si.204D) and NC.702 (Si.204A) powered by Renault 12S engines (440kW SNECMA S-12-SO2-3Hs, French-built Argus As.411s). Approximately 300 were built.
The NC.702 version accommodated a crew of two and eight passengers (four on each side of a central aisle), with a toilet and luggage compartment aft. As a freighter, the interior equipment was removed and the cabin divided into four compartments. Among the many operators of the Martinet were Air France and CSA of Czechoslovakia.
