Has anybody come across any more information on this plan? Presumably the units involved would have been the K-Verband and KG 200, over half of the surviving BV 222s having been transfered to the latter (II./KG 200?) from Lufttransportstaffel 222 in June 1944. There should have been around 9 surviving (prototype & production) examples of the BV 222 at that point, four of which had been assigned to the Fliegerführer Atlantik primarily as long range convoy spotters, mostly using bases in France (post D-Day they were transfered to Norway). That would have, in theory at least, left five available for use in the Suez Canal operation.moin1900 said:And the german project
