"Rotorcraft of the Third Reich"“ Fa 325 Krabbe
The Fa 325 Krabbe (Crab) helicopter-crane. Focke commenced work on
it in 1943, and the Kriegsmarine was interested in the design, considering it for the torpedo-carrying role. This was going to be a four-rotor machine, resembling a doubled Fa 223 Drache. It would be powered by two 1,000 hp (735 kW) BMW 301 R-3 (Bramo 323 Fafnir) engines.
Empty weight was calculated at 9,250 kg, and maximum take-off weight at 12,268 kg. Eventually, in 1943 the Kriegsmarine HQ withdrew their support and the Fa 325 Krabbe remained a paper project.”
I’ve added it as “true mistake” on my pageTophe said:Alas (for my 1939-45 twin-boom collection) the text says this is a Focke Patent 1938, so... too early, while... the journalist imagine this is a near future in 1941 as flying machine, so, as a dream, this is a 1941-project, kind of. I may draw it and include it as such.
