SNCASE Sud-Est SE 3000

                                        Soon after the cessation of hostilities in 1945, SNCASE acquired the services of famed German
                                        helicopter designer Heinrich Focke.  He had developed the Focke-Achgelis Fa223 in Germany
                                        during the war.  The SE3000 was almost a dead copy of that machine.  The experience gained
                                        on this, and the follow-on machine the SE3101, eventually led to the successful SE3130 Alouette.
