Cutaway North American B-25J Mitchel in an artillery version with 8 machine guns in the nose that made it an interdiction plane to fear, here presented with the colors of the Venezuelan Air Force that operated it from 1947 to 1973/74 when they were disincorporated and assigned to the Bolivian Air Force, author Aviagraphica and retouched by Motocar
I need the name of this Nazi project, I lost the data to complement the infographic, I only had a blurred image without the name I used as a base to recreate this strange and desperate bomber glider design. First of all, Thanks Motocar.
It's claimed to be a Lippisch design, see http://www.luft46models.com/manufacturers/li/ligl.php, but apparently it's fake: https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,26358.msg148171.html#msg148171. Unfortunately the link to the specific thread doesn't work (at least for me).
It may actually be a genuine design, but from much earlier in the war (late 1940/early 1941). There is circumstantial evidence that it was intended as a stopgap replacement for dedicated Luftwaffe anti-shipping aircraft that were being diverted eastwards from western theatres (in particular Norway) as part of preparations for Operation Barbarossa. From what I've been able to piece together it seems to have been a pretty short lived project, primarily due to it not originating from within or otherwise authorised by the RLM (which was notoriously protective of its turf). Of course, that doesn't mean that necessarily mean that it was actually a Lippisch project though.
Thanks martinbayer friend for the data review and got the name of the same Lippisch "Gleiter Bombenflugze", although it was not official history after the drafts found by the allies after the end of World War II indicate that at least sketches of the concept were made. Luft46 page does not appear in the index but it appears in the search engine ...!
Thank you friend Gray Havoc and complement the data and managed to locate the name of the Lippisch project "Gleiter Bombenflugze"
Here I leave the drawing with the identification and some tweaks ... Now to find the differences ... !!
The german word for airplane is "Flugzeug" (not: "Flugze"!). A "Gleiter" is a gliding plane; not to mix up with a "Segelflugzeug", that is an sailplane. So here it must be a "Bomben Gleiterflugzeug" or a "Bombergleiter".
This "link" to the video on YouTube that has the rear view of the little known Ford Stout, hopefully a friend could edit those two seconds at the beginning of it (second 12-13) that lasts 12:21 minutes and share them here. ..! I lack that ability to make video editions, just to show that curious view of Dragonfly.
Thank you in advance, Motocar
Greetings friends, I'm looking for these cutaways the MiG-17 appeared in the magazine Air Enthusiast of November / December 1995, also the Rockwell T-2 published in the magazines Air Enthusiast October 1973 T-2 Buckeye and the T-2C Buckeye in the edition of the International Air magazine June 1975
