There is a lot of uncertainty about this concept...
The illustration shows the proposed armed version of the Ao-192B.
The Ao-225 should have been a much more advanced design of
wich only a few technical details survived....

Hi guys,

this is the mockup of the Ago Ao192C. The true Ao225 would have a fuselage mounted engine with power transmited via shafts to two propellers in the wings. Bye.

Hi chaps,

the Ao225 picture above is a "pastiche" of the wind tunnel model of the true Ao225 ( particullarly the tail assembly ) and a not very well rendered Ao192C ( on steroids and with a few errors ). I own Manfred Griehls new book on german aircraft armaments, and I hope to post soon a 3-view of the Ao192C ( original ). Regarding the Ao225, the wind tunnel model is well known.
Some time ago at Luftwaffe Experten Message Board a member named Ago Scheer drew a convincing aircraft, and said he was working on a book about Ago. He intervewed a man who used to work at the development department and managed to get data/drawings on an unknown design. Hope this work comes in book shape. Bye.
 
Indeed.And in the same file on the LEMB forum
here was a photo of an-inverted-windtunnel model also.
 
Hi guys,

as promised, here goes the Ago Ao192C, taken from Manfred Griehl`s excellent "Deutsche Flugzeugbewaffnung bis 1945", Motorbuch Verlag.

Also some other very good stuff here: http://www.histaviation.com/AGO_Ao_192.html
Enjoy.

Although the AGO Ao 192 was also a two propellers retractable gear monoplane
it's easy to differentiate a courier aircraft from a military heavy fighter attack.
I think that the photo put by hesham shows really the AGO Ao 225 mock-up and there's a mistake
in the description of the draft put by Wurger ; this can't be the AGO Ao 192 ( even C military version ).
Does anybody knows how many airmen made the crew of the AGO Ao 225 ? Two, or more ..?
 
Just compare the photo with the 3-view drawing ::). Have you got any picture of the Ao 225?
 
Only what I can do is to look and enjoy the views of the AGO Ao 192 in my gallery of Luftwaffe aircraft.
I know my AGO Ao 192 Kurier very well in the light transport, ambulance, geometric survey
and liason versions, and when it's military used as a reconnaissance and a light bomber.
After all I can't believe that the attachment You've put shows the AGO Ao 225.
I know only one photo of the AGO Ao 225 mock-up, but tens photos of the Kurier.
That's why my list of the Luftwaffe aircraft begins this way :

That`s exactly what I was trying to do. The drawing of the Ao 192C matches the mockup. It isn`t the Ao 225.

It`s a pitty that I haven`t saved that nice Ao 225 depiction. The wind tunnel model does show a very warlike aircraft, not a "courier" on steroids. They were quite different.
 
Sorry, my dear Wurger. I committed a horrible error.
I should have written : " After all I can't believe that the attachment You've put shows the AGO Ao 192 ".
It is the AGO Ao 225 ;D
 
There's a photo of a Ao.225 wind tunnelmodel
on the LEMB forum.
According to AGOScheer who is working on a book about AGO
the first illustration shown in this thread should be a mockup
of the Ao.192C build at AGO musterbau Oschersleben..
 
Go to : ***.luftwaffe-experten.org
and choose :projects,prototypes & what iff's 1933-45

change *** for www

Good luck.
 
I found this intersting pictures of the Ago Ao.225...maybe..this should be an armed version of the Ao.192.

It is indeed a projected armed version of the Ao.192
not the Ago Ao.225..

The real Ao.225 is a different concept described
by René Scheer in his lasted book about the Ago Flugzeugwerke.
 
Hello Frieds,
I´ve wrote a latest update for the project AGO Ao 225 (FP30) in "Klassiker der Luftfahrt" 7/2019 inclusive drawings based on Ex-AVA - Goettingen Material.
This is the 225- not as seen here in #4.

Yes,very beautiful one,thanks.
 
Thanks for the tip, Renée.

I haven`t forgot about that AGO pusher propeller heavy fighter you have discovered some years ago. Do you intend to publish about it?
 
Dear Wurger- Unfortunalely I have not enough information for a reconstruction at this time.
Thanks for the input, René. Your article is most interesting, adding that a twin fin configuration and DB 606 engined Ao 225 were considered. I also loved the front, upper and side views, this one slightly different from the one in "AGO-Flugzeugwerke: Vom Gitterrumpf zur Me 262.
 
A good article about Ago Ao.225 in; Klassiker der Luftfahrt 7/2019.
