hesham said:here is also the drawing No 50 08.009-46 for Focke Wulf FW.200,from the file;
Focke Wulf Fw 200 C-3U-4 Fernaufklarer.
hesham said:also at the end of the war,Focke-Wulf studied an advanced helicopter ?,not Focke-Achgelis.
I can confirm that the aircraft pictured in your fine artwork there is properly known as the Einmotoriges Jagdflugzeug mit PTL-Gerat 021 [that whole thing, from 'Einmotoriges' to '021' - that's its name, not a drawing caption], as described in Focke-Wulf Baubeschreibung Nr. 281. Incidentally, that document includes two Focke-Wulf drawings, 03 10 226-126 and 03 10 226-127. No point putting a 'P.' in front of a drawing number. Or putting it in front of the last three digits of the second drawing number. Focke-Wulf never did it. Why would we?Flitzer said:
Thank you for the replies everyone! Justo may I ask, for the first image you have posted, does the armament option shown in the drawing consist of a choice between two Mk 108 and/or one Mk 103 in the wings? In addition, what is the source for those images?Justo Miranda said:
Hmmm......Difficult. ???newsdeskdan said:Focke-Wulf never called anything 'FW 281' or 'Project VIII'. It's proper name was Einmotoriges Jagdflugzeug mit PTL-Gerat 021. It was described in Baubeschreibung Nr. 281, which is where the number comes from.
Oh!! Super.robunos said:Just speculation on my part, but it appears that the wings and tailplanes of the 'c' are interchangeable, like the wings of the Ta183, probably for ease of production.
I've also read, in several places, that the toed-out engine arrangement was to improve handling with one engine failed.
Also Focke Wulf had a Project for ramjet fighter-bomber,not related to Ta.283 ?.hesham said:Also from my files,until getting the source,
Focke Wulf had a Project for a ramjet bomber (not fighter),are there any more Infos ?.
No, as David Myhra freely admits in his ebook, that 'bomber' is just a one-page sketch with no additional information at all, let alone a project number. Putting Ta 283 in the ebook title does make it more searchable though, since people have long known the Strahlrohrjager by the erroneous designationblackkite said:Is it Ta283?
