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.

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 ..?

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..

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.

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?

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.
