Design appeared in 1956 and first of two prototypes flew on 10 Jun 1959. It was ground breaking in that it used 3 engines geared through a single transmission but vibrations were to bedevil the programme. Development was terminated after disappointing performance and handling difficulties, to concentrate on the SE.3210 Super Frelon.
