Developed by Heinkel 1922, still working for the Caspar-Werken, the S II differed from the S I : The engine was mounted on a steelframe, not directly to the fuselage. A firewall protected the fuselage. The S II was used by the Swedish Navy as S 3 and later designed HE 2 by Heinkel

Paid for the remainder of Skybolt's development and then sold the info back to the US.

What a shame that economics prevented that from happening...

The HP-111 would be interesting as it could have also had Civil Airlifter and Airliner potential and given Handley Page a much sounder footing to fight off the forced mergers being dictated by the govt of the time.

And HP were doing a lot of boundary layer control (BLC) research at this time. An HP. 111 order could have been the impetus to get a BLC airliner into service and if so we would all be flying in wing shaped airplanes today burning half as much fuel to get from A to B.
