The V5 and V6 prototypes had the same engine as V4 (D-IFOE). The nose of V3 (D-IZIQ) reminds me of that of the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka. The change in engine type from radial to V-cylinder engine for the Ha 137 prototypes reminds me of when Curtiss toyed with reengining the P-36 Hawk with a V-cylinder engine to create the P-37 and ultimately the P-40 Warhawk.
