The Farman F.150 Marin ((English) Marine) was a 1920s French biplane designed by Farman as a day bomber for the French Navy.[1]

Development[edit]

The F.150 Marin was a twin-engined unequal-span biplane in the B.3 category for French Navy. The Marin could be fitted with a float or fixed landing gear.[1] Although the design was an improvement on the earlier Goliath, it did not increase in performance, and it was not ordered into production.[1]
