"Arbeitsflugzeug" Program
« on: April 22, 2011, 08:18:57 am »
Hi guys,

this interesting program was iniciated by the RLM when the Bomber-B program was antecipated to be a failure. It must be described as a "workhorse" or a multipurpose aircraft. Here I post some of the tenders, e.g. the Heinkel P.1065/1055 and the Blohm&Voss P.163. The Dornier contestant was the Do 417. Does anyone know more competitors to this particular program?

The Blohm & Voss proposal would have been 'interesting', from an aircrew point of view.

Hi,

may be you meant Dornier Do.317,the Dornier Do.417 is not right.

Hello Hesham,

thanks for joining up. No, I am quite correct. The Dornier Do 417 was a real project, cited and published by Nowarra or Grihel. Please see our own thread:

Anything to add, ladds? It would be most welcomed.

My dear Wurger,

Also the Junkers Ju-88E was involved,later called Ju-188 (the winner).

Any idea what the twin 20mm were supposed to do on the P.1055?

The Blohm & Voss proposal would have been 'interesting', from an aircrew point of view.

Well, it was abandoned after they created add a second crew pod to the wing-tip of a BV-141 and decided it was just a very bad idea.

The advantage of the B+V design, from the crew's viewpoint, is that any fighter pilot's going to aim for the middle bit.
