was an article (3pages) about Skoda Kauba. Here two pictures of the SL6

Hello everybody,

I am looking for drawings of Skoda Kauba planes. I am the most interested in projects Kauba V5 and Kauba SL6. Does anybody have those?

Thank you.

Apart from the SL6 and the P14, already mentioned by Hesham, the same Flying Review
article showed the SK VI A, SK VI, V2 and the V3 with photos and the V5 with an
exploded view.

Thanks for posting that, Joe. The supersonic P.14 version is mentioned in Jet Planes of the Third Reich, The Secret Projects vol.1 with the note that "no further details are known", and I've wondered how it would have looked like.

I have read that the P.14S could reach a top speed of 3200 km/h.
I think that this is a construction from Dr. Eugen Sänger.
It is also known as "Staustrahlüberschallflugzeug"

I have heard that Skoda have built a 1:1 model of this project.

A lot of German projects claimed supersonic potential, but the Germans (or anyone else for that matter) had no real understanding of transonic and supersonic aerodynamics.

We must no confuse the Skoda-Kauba designs with the
work of Eugen Sänger.

The max. estimated speed of the Lorin powered Sänger Strahljäger project
was +- 850km/h at sea level.

have anybody v5 plans?
I've seen mention of them in the 'Reichdreams Dossiers'. They're being released in downloadable form at the moment. Justo might be willing to post an individual 3-view; he's done so in the past.

All I've seen for this aircraft is a box-art picture.

Neat, though could anyone translate the German text?
" The type V-4 was proposed as a "tank killer". too,carrying 14 rocket launch tubes
under the wings. This makeshift is understandable, as ever more russian tanks
were met on the battle field and defending them became more and more difficult.
The Kauba type didn't need a lot of strategic important materials, so production in
large numbers seemed to be realistic.Nevertheless, the project never came to fruition
All efforts were concentrated on the new, improved type, the SK 257. "

Internet had one but it was discarded, maybe due to Copyright issue. If you have problems getting it with Google, ask me (my E-mail is on my profile, not yours so I could not send it directly). Or/and I will check Nemecek book for a bigger view maybe. :)

In Vaclav Nemecek's book "Ceskoslovenska leteadla" (Nase Vojsko publ. 1968), page 28 of 3-views part, is the Skoda-Kauba V 4, maybe not the re-engined SK-257. Would that be useful? For a 1968 book, I think there cannot be a Copyright issue.

Progress report on the SK V4.


The first prototype flight I think was in 1943?
When would the RLM directive of using light fighters such as the SK V4 as a tank killer have been?


Many thanks
P

Another question or two please re: SK V4.


Were all movable surfaces metal skin or were the tail and flaps fabric covered?


Also fuel tanks positions if anyone could point them out please?


Progress pic below.


Many thanks
