I have this poor scan of the Blohm und Voss P.200 Transocean seaplane. Does anyone know if a cleaner version of this cutway exists in any published books or articles? I'd like to find a cleaner version.

Thanx in advance,
Gary

airman said:
was it civilian or military aircraft ? ???

Isn't it obvious that this is an airliner?
They projected it for transatlantic airlines (after German victory in WWII of course :D ). It would carry 120 passengers with maximum luxury. It would be really BIG aircraft - similar to the Spruce Goose in size, and even 1.5x heavier!

Technical data for BV P.200 (calculated):
Wing span - 85.0 m
Length - 70.4 m
Wing area - 715 m2
Max. takeoff weight - 210 000 kg
Powerplant - 8x BMW-803, 4000 hp each
Maximum speed - 440 km/h
Cruise speed - 350 km/h
Vertical speed - 3.6 m/s
Flight range - 8000 km
Service ceiling - 6000 m

Source: Aero Revue magazine (Czech Republic), issue 60 (1997), p.65-66.

Additional information of the book by Guetschow:
The BMW 8003 should drive counter rotating props with a diameter of 5m each and would have be
accessible during flight by a tunnel. The wing was based on the typical B & V tubular spar, which
doubled as fuel tank. Apart from the engines and fuel, each wing housed five cargo compartments
of 2m³. The fuselage had a height of 10m, a usable width of 5,40 m and was divided into three decks.
The A-deck was to be fitted with a bar and a dance floor !
The cabins height was 2,10 m, height of the dining room 2,35m. The 120 passengers would have been
served by 8 crew members, plus the flight crew of 6. The reason for all that luxury was, that
passengers should have been poached from the shipping companies and a faster journey wasn't
regarded as enough reason for wealthy travellers to change their means of transportation.

This is for better imagination, how big P.200 actually would be. I implanted it into well-known picture with giant planes comparison.
