Hello,

I came across this nice article on this performant and handsome aircraft in wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focke-Wulf_Fw_187

"Tank nevertheless directed studies on a wide variety of new versions of the basic airframe, everything from dive bomber, night fighter, fighter-bomber, high-altitude interceptor (with greater wingspan and lengthened rear fuselage) and others. These sported a variety of engines, including the Daimler-Benz DB 601, DB 605 and even the BMW 801 radial".

I will add also what I believe to be one of those proposals, taken from "'Kurt Tank - Konstrukteur und Testpilot bei Focke Wulf", Motorbuch Verlag.

Do you guys know more on this proposals?

Hi,

Justo, glad to have you.

also from that article:

"Several changes were made to the design as a result of the testing, including new DVL propellers in place of the original Junkers-Hamiltons, and experimental twin wheel bogies that were abandoned after testing".

Twin wheel bogies????

I appreciate that those specifications relate to a SINGLE ( EINMOTORIGES )engined dive-bomber. ???

P.s Justo, have a look at your message box.

A single-engined Fw 187? Do you imagine a nose engine? or else an asymmetric layout like this?

Hello chaps,

thank you Justo and Richard for sharing this tremendous material.

Hi tophe, I was relating to the third image in this thread, "Kenndaten der Einmotorigen Stukaentwurfs". It means roughly "Specifications of the single engined dive bomber development", and besides the span ( around 15m ) all other data is far from the "Falke". Justo, can you give us the context in which this specifications are included in that article? Probably the text gives a hint.
