I love the Heinkel high performance designs from the 19030ties. He 70, He 112, He 118, He 100, all beautiful planes with clean lines. Sadly they not never enjoyed the success they deserved.

I'm not sure we would ever see such an aircraft in DCS, too much information is needed and probably simply not available for those early models. Anyway, if it ever happens, hope it's not that V5 in the pic 😅 .

 

What could be easily modelled is the bridge in the background, it's still there and I've crossed it like a zillion times either by car or by feet 🤣 .

What a pity.Ernst Heinkel is a pioneer of the air age.

He 176,first aircraft to be propelled solely by a liquid_fueled rocket

He 178,first aircraft to fly under turbojet power, and the first practical jet aircraft

He 280,first turbojet-powered fighter aircraft

etc

Fred David,an Austrian Jew,worked for Heinkel in pre-Nazi Germany, as well as Mitsubishi and Aichi Kokuki in Japan. His design contributions in Japan resulted in the Mitsubishi A5M Claude fighter and the Aichi D3A Type 99 Val dive-bomber.Japan purchased He 112 and He 100,Ki-61 was also influenced by He 100.He 100 was also sold to Russian,Heinkel met Alexander Yakovlev when Russian bought He 100,maybe influenced Yak fighters too.

The Heinkel HD 37 was a fighter aircraft, designed in Germany in the late 1920s, but produced in the USSR as Polikarpov I-7 for Soviet Air Force service.

He 112 V5 didn't go to Sapin,V6 and V9 did.Screenshot_20220315-192138__01.jpg

Wow,you are Spanish!Sadly it seems that no He 112 survived.Spain used He 112 until 1952,maybe there is a surviving He 112?

Yeah, too many Vs to remember given my poor brain these days 🤣. Anyway, B-0 and so were pretty beautiful aircraft, the open canopy ones weren't for my taste. Probably not like we have to worry for the moment on what variant they make, but dreaming is free.

Not like being Spanish is nothing special, you know, I just happen to be here 😁 .

IIRC (hardly with my actual brain as said) there is a propeller, I believe an engine also, probably coming from some He-112 in the "Museo del Aire" (air museum) in Madrid, but not many more things that I remember. Yeah, it's a pity how so many unique prototypes and rare aircraft coming here during SCW and afterwards were just scrapped as junk at the end of their service lives, but sadly that's what it is in here, though I believe it wasn't different with so many captured aircraft at the end of WWII in many countries, so that's what we have left now. In the Museo del Aire there're weapons, engines, propellers, and some interesting things from relatively rare or not surviving at all aircraft, but whole aircraft not many aside from the famously preserved He-111E. A preserved He-112 would have been a really interesting bird to have, but sadly no.

Yes,compared to Bf 109,the open canopy was outdated.Closed canopy was a new thing then.Open canopy was for better visibility,I-16 was desighed to have a closed canopy but pilots didn't like it.

That's true,maybe this will never happen.Few people care about this aircraft.

Thank you for your information.That's sad.
