From slightly-asymmetric to…
« on: August 27, 2006, 12:08:15 am »
At http://www.airwarfareforum.com/viewtopic.p...0f56c2052#33406 was presented the famous Savoia-Marchetti SM.92, saying it was ASYMMETRICAL!
Well, it was not included in Igor Shestakov's web-site about asymmetric planes ( http://www.geocities.com/asymmetrics/ ), nor on my addition to it ( http://cmeunier.chez-alice.fr/Asymm_addition.htm ), but for sure this was rather uncomfortable: yes, there is a slight asymmetry, not in the overall shape nor motorization but in the cockpit location. This is not part of the asymmetric subject as defined by dear Igor, but I am willing to make the SM.92 come inside, and bring the SM.91 with it: the SM.92-II and SM.91-II are fully asymmetrical, while the SM.92-III and SM.91-III are asymmetric AND twin-tail especially for me…

Of course, all twin-fuselage planes can be transformed like the SM.92, see the Twin-Mustang below:

and all the "twin-boom & pod" planes like the SM.91…

Or a whole family, from Messerschmitt single-seat twin-fuselages:
