The Messerschmitt Me 164 was a twin engine shoulder wing transport and communications aircraft with up to eight passengers designed to compete with the Siebel Si 204, In comparison to the Siebel the plane was heavier and had better performance and improved accomodation for the passengers. After the Construction details was ready the buildingof it given to the French Company Caudron at Issy. The work was so slow of the prototype Messerschmitt-Caudron Me C 164 V-1 that the whole project was cancelled. Some of this was used in the Caudron C 920 ?
The Caudron Goéland was built in great number during the war for the Luftwaffe , and Caudron was choosed for it's successor ,the Me 308 ( later MeC 164).
By Caudron it was designated Caudron C 920 ,and a full size mockup was built.
The part of each design-buro ,Messerschmitt and Caudron is not clear : perhaps a member could help ?
