    The SNCASE SE. 100 was a fighter aircraft developed for the French Air Force. The Fall of France thwarted mass production and only one was produced.

    Was the intent to crash German ME 109s by inducing paroxysms of uncontrollable laughter in the pilots?

    There was a video game years ago (Air Pirates? Sky Pirates? Something like that) that had all sorts of weird aircraft designs; I think this was one of them...

    In any case the 30's saw an explosion of weird aircraft designs like this.

    I found this: https://forum.warthunder.com/index.p...st-100-leo-50/ which makes the design choices clearer; the rear gunners position was the space just before the droopy tail; that gave it a greater field of fire to counter attackers from the rear...

    When it comes to engineering, the French imitate no one, and no one imitates the French.

    Every response has me laughing, flying Citroen and all.
    Completely unaware the auto designed to accommodate a rear gunner.
    As Marv says, that quote is rather epic. If one ever finds himself at an HES (killer threading features) or Cazeneuve (w-i-d-e bedways) lathe, or late Huron mill; I'll just say wow. One distinct feature they share is multiple clamping; more effective with less effort. Let's remember Mr. Vernier too, every time you interpret fine increments of measurement.
    I don't fault the French. We have many French HMTer's too; posting great projects, displaying great skills, and broader interests than many of us.

    I had the misfortune to rent a deux chevaux while consulting in Versailles. It took a while to realize that that umbrella handle sticking out of the dashboard was the shift lever.

    And let us not forget the joy our WWI soldiers had when issued the infamous Chauchat machine gun.

    But all is forgiven when you remember that they invented escargot tongs and the delicious preparation of that which you held with them.
