High Altitude Bomber
High-altitude bomber NC 150 manufactured by SNCAC (Societe nationale de constructions aeronau-tiques du Center). The experience of the Farman design team of Marcel Roca in the creation of the Farman 1000 high-altitude aircraft was also used after the formation of the SNCAC concern when creating a new high-altitude bomber.
The first prototype of the aircraft took off on May 14, 1939. After him, another prototype was built - NC.151 with the same bomb load, but reinforced cannon armament - two 20 mm cannons paired with machine guns. It was also planned to release the third prototype of the aircraft - NC.152 with an increased bomb load and a pressurized cabin.
