Happy Easter :D !

I have stumbled on one more application for the well-known project 194 by Blohm&Voss. Initially it was intended as an attack aircraft, a destroyer, a dive bomber and for reconnaissance purposes, but take a look at page 12 of this pdf document by B&V:

http://www.cdvandt.org/Nachtfee-Blohm-u-Voss-P194-integral-text.pdf

P.194 as a night fighter, with a radio/radar operator, with the antenna installation for the FuG 220 radar. Super, I would say!

Interesting find !
Would have meant to lengthen the quite short cockpit for a second seat.
Used the Be 262 B as pattern, as I think, both crew members would have
been seated looking forward. Didn't consider the differences in the shape of
the nose, as those probably are due to the quickly made sketch.

Generally, the reputation of teachers becomes better, as people become older. If I listen to
my kids, I actually wouldn't ask them about their opinion about teachers... ;)
About the twin-seat P.194 I should have looked up more carefully, as the P.194.00-001 already
was fitted with two seats , sorry ...

About my opinion with regards to teachers ?
Or about the twin-seat P.194 ?? ;)
