The iAPX 432 was (as I recall) designed to be an Ada machine in the same way that e.g. the Burroughs B6700 et al were designed to be Algol machines (or Algol & Cobol machines). (Actually I think the 432 started out as a more generic HLL machine but when DOD finalized on Ada, Intel made the obvious moves to accomodate.)
