The Hutter Hu-136 dive bomber project.
Well, they created a legacy of designs that nothing short of revolutionised the industry, so good for them!Jemiba said:"I always wondered how pilots would have liked this plane."
I don't think, that the designer had to care for the pilots comfort. He just had
to care for not being send to the eastern front ! And that meant: Designing,
designing, designing .... Some people even say, that some designers didn't even
stop designing aircraft, when the war was long over ... ;D
Basil said:Hü-Zerstörer: Hütter was a designer of high performance sail planes. He also designed a wing for a reconnaissance version of the Heinkel He 219, but there was no Zerstörer-project (Zerstörer means destroyer = heavy fighter). Besides, the concept with narrow wings and Argus pulso-engines hung below them is structurally absurd.

Only actual images related to the Hu211 I've found were the mock-ups for the Jumo 222 engine nacel and main gear and a wind tunnel model based on the Ju388 fuselage. That actually makes more sense in that it would have a pressurize cockpit for the crew. Or even some mutant machine, like the He219C, which would have had the Ju388 cockpit fitted to a modified He fuselage. Best evidence so far suggests the wings were never fitted to any machine before they were destroyed.Schwarzadler said:so far no NG nor forum can provide actual pics for:

Wurger said:hello guys ,
the Hütter brothers, Wolfgang and Ulrich, designed a series of aircraft projects based on their experience on gliders. My main source of information regarding their work is the third volume of the series "Geheimprojekte der Luftwaffe", by Herwig/Rode, Motorbuch Verlag, but I believe there are more on this besides the long range destroyer ( depicted below, taken from the same book ) from 1942, the Hü 136 Stubos ( 1/2 ), the Hü 211 and the attack aircraft with 2 As044 from 1945. Does anyone know more projects from Hütter?
As the engines are mounted side by side mid-ships, would the props have been shaft driven through the wings to slim nacelles similar to the ArE561?

The propellers are nose mounted, and driven by extension shafts...
Regarding the Hu 211, I would agree with Wurger that the wings would be straight tapered, however, I don't think that the vee tail would be used.

1933 HT 23 tandem wing glider
1942-43 Hü 21 High performance 2 seat glider
There is a nice drawing of the 211 and it did not show a "V" tail. Also there is a simple sketch of the Argus fighter and it does not look at all like the drawing posted.
