EKW C-3603 & C-3605
Title: EKW C-3603 and C-3605
The C-3603 is a multi-purpose fighter-bomber designed in 1939 by the Swiss Federal Constructions Works (EKW) and is comparable to the Ilyushin IL-2. However, the C.3603 has a twin fin layout, allowing the rear gunner to have better visibility. Around 160 were built and were used during WW2 to defend Swiss neutrality. The aircraft were then relegated to training and target-towing duties.
In 1973 24 examples were converted to Lycoming T53 Turbo -prop power and re-designated C-3605. These aircraft had a dsitinctive long nose and additional fins to compensate.
