Blohm & Voss P.63 Schnellbomber
« on: March 03, 2019, 01:45:07 am »
Who knows this design? To my knowledge it's the only aircraft project slated to be equipped with the Junkers Jumo 212, a double engine made up of two paired Jumo 213, according Reinhard Müller.

I reckon it wouldn 't be available in mainstream literature. If it was an early P.163 was only 50 cm shorter, following Nowarra. Curious is that this source, as well as Smith/Kay mention the B version of the Jumo 212. I haven't known this engine project beyond the fact that it was a coupled one, and now I see that even a B version existed. Something tells that it wasn't probably a typo because it doesn't mentions the HP.

According to the original B&V company projects list, the P 63.01 had a starting weight of 10,400kg, an empty weight of 6,900kg, wingspan of 17.5m and wing area of 60m2. It was powered by a single Jumo 212 B and is indeed described as a 'Schnellbomber'.
The P 62.02 also had a single Jumo 212 B. It had a starting weight of 9,400kg, empty weight of 6,540kg, wingspan of 18m and wing area of 60m2. It is described as a 'Stuka-See unsymmetrisch'.
The P 62.01 was the same except it was powered by a single DB 606.
The P 89.01 was a Fernzerstoerer powered by two Jumo 212s (no 'B'), although '2 DB 606' is mentioned in brackets afterwards. This had a loaded weight of 24,400kg, empty weight of 13,400kg, wingspan of 28m and wing area of 100m2.

I think those are B&V's only linked engine projects.

The P 163.01 had a starting weight of 15,000kg, empty weight of 9,400kg, wingspan of 20.5m and a wing area of 55m2 - a completely unrelated and much later project. The P 163.02 with Bramo 803 was slightly heavier and the P 163.03, no engine specified, was quite a lot lighter at 14,180kg and 8,900kg. None of the project designs are given lengths on the official project list, only wingspan and wing area.
