I.A. 36 Cóndor II

The I.A. 36 Cóndor II was projected as a passenger transport aircraft by Kurt Tank.
It was designed in Argentina within the Military Aircraft Factory in the early 1950s.
The project was canceled by the government of dictator Pedro Eugenio Aramburu, during the era known as Revolution Libertadora in 1958.

The project had five turbines in wraparound conformation, Rolls Royce turbojet “Nene II”, although it was planned to replace them with lighter and more powerful ones.
It could accommodate 32 to 40 passengers and reach a speed of 950 km/h (for that decade the English plane of Havilland Comet 3 developed 780 km / h).
The Condor had a wingspan of 34m and, like the Pulqui II, configured with steep arrow wings benefiting its performance and economy in flight at high speeds, with an estimated reach of 5000 km.

The image shown above was developed for the book Luftwaffe Confidential.
