Default BU406 instead of 2n2955?

hy all , i was wondering if i can replace a 2n2955 with a BU406.
Can that be done?
I'm using them in a schematic of a simerical amplifier that uses as output devices 2n3055 and 2n2955.

I'd like to see you try it.

Semiconductor: BU406 (BU 406) - TRANSISTOR SILICON NPN / 400V / 5A / 60W/TO220

Not only is it the wrong polarity, it is a swiching transistor.

Switching transistors are not intended for forward biased linear operation with more than a few volts, they will blow up.
