I'm just looking throught the "Observers Aircraft" 1991/92 edition and on pg. 104 I found the Embaraer/FMA CBA-123 Vector, a regional airliner that looks like a rear mounted jet, but instead of jets, it has pusher props. Does anyone know if this plane was ever produced or any other info? There's one pic on here of it at keyword 24342.

This is a prototype variant based on the EMB-110 Bandeirante. As far as I know it was a test plane mainly for aerodynamic variations and purposes. Thus the props mounted on the rear. I guess it was at the Paris Air Show once and maybe it was purchased sometime. Embraer also used once a similar prototype for testing of high angle gliding rates.

As far as I know, the CBA-123 was a project between Embraer of Brazil and FMA of Argentina. This airplane, which was designed to use 2 turbofans, was never built in serial. I even do not know if a prototype was ever built. It was the one and only project between Brazil and Argentina in this area, till FMA was dismantled and sold to Lockheed-Martin which settled down in Cordoba where FMA had been for years.

Best regards,

Buenos Aires, Argentina

The CBA-123 Vector was based on the Brasilia, and never made it to the production line. A plane that looks like it but now with jets is the RJ-135.

This prots was originally based on the EMB-110 Bandeirante, but later modified into something that looks similar to the Brasilia. The horizontal stabilizer and elevators are located overhead because of the prop engine's position. The original sketch was on top of the Bandeirante, later to 120.

CBA-123 Vector was the 3rd member of the 12X family of the regional turboprops. (1st was the EMB-121, and second was the EMB-120).

The CBA-123 was based on the EMB-120 Brasilia, using the same nose section, and the same fuselage (shortened and with new tail section).

3 prototypes were built (2 in Embraer and 1 in Argentina) but the Argentina's prototype never flown.

The two brazilian prototypes, registered PT-ZVE and PT-ZVB, remains partially disassembled on one Embraer Hangar.

If someone want further informations, please contact me at nolf@uol.com.br
