The A300 is mentioned in the link ("Maximum commonality with the A300B"), so this A200 brochure must be jounger. If I remember well (ok, I came into the game a few years later) it is a study of what later became the A320.

masi1157 wrote:Sure, Dassault and Aerospatiale were in more or less close, and sometimes forced, cooperation. In that cooperation Aerospatiale had access to some of the intellectual property of Dassault. But I'm sure both had their own set of intellectual property that the other one had no access to. So Aerospatiale could not simply take the whole of Mercure and develop something own from it. They could and surely did use many aspects and concepts of it.
