In 1940 or 41, two He-119 light bomber prototypes (possibly V7 and V8) were imported for evaluation by the IJN and subsequently flown at Yokosuka. Due to the destruction of documents in both Germany and Japan, the experimental designation of these aircraft and the results of the test program are not known.

Are there any further data/infos/pics in japanese service available on these IJN experimental aircraft?

Yours

tom! ;)

Hi.

The problem is not really to get a picture or infos of a paticular aircraft in general but to get these in japanese service...

At the moment I´m working on japanese navy fighters for my website so any info/pics on all the various AX plus A7He and A8V aircraft are especially welcome.

Yours

tom! :)

Hi! He100D and Devoitine D510J. Perhaps the first picture was taken in Germany.

Hi.

Nice pictures, thx.


@admin
I really don´t want critisise your decision (I know how much work the job of an admin can be), but I don´t think he posted that link deliberately. Nevertheless it was there and so blocking him is consequent following the rules of this forum. :(


Blackkite did a good job helping a lot members solving their questions during the last years. Thx for that.

Yours

tom! ;)

I sincerely hope this blocking is a temporary situation. Blackkite-san has been a huge and thoughtful resource for those of us with an interest in Imperial Japanese aircraft, designation systems, etc. I'm certain this posting was unintentional on his part and does not warrant such a rigid response. Are you aware at all of his prior postings? I'm sure your job as administrator is a difficult (and much-appreciated) one, but surely this reflexive decision is worth a second look... Harry

Terribly sorry about this. I'm not sure what I did.
May be that site also including some not proper images for the SPF.
He118's nose looks like Suisei.

Thanks so much for the beautiful photo of the Heinkel He112V5 (c/n 1951; D-IIZO, with 660hp Junkers Jumo 210Da). First I have seen of this machine in Japanese markings. My source (when I can find it) claims the IJN referred to this a/c as the "Heinkel Model112 Fighter" while under test. One can see the faint IJN marking [Ko]-AH-1 on the fin. Harry

I've sent the link you posted via private message, it was 100% not aviation related.

Sorry again. I was blurred. I will be careful enough in the future.
