It call the Arado AR-240

If i didn't know better it looks like a He-219.

Arado acre 240



1939 started the development at that acre 240, those as competition airplane to the ME 210 and He 219 likewise in the development. The airplane was conceived as destroyers, high-speed bombers, reconnaissance aircraft and night fighters. The extremely high speed of 700 km/h (calculated) went however on the surface loading from 300 - 400 kg/mÔ┬▓. This led too much heavy flight characteristics.

The prototype V-1 was unarmed and with a parachute brake equipped. It completed its first flight in June 1940. Two months late main headers the prototype V-2 to its maiden flight off. The machine was armed with two mg 151/20 and two mg 17. The prototype V-3 possessed a forced pilot's compartment and the dive brake was void. As the first airplane the machine was equipped with remote controlled FDL 131 Z. The machine became as reconnaissance aircraft at the channel coast use-using that last prototype, the V-4, received weider dive brakes and other engines: Railways 603 A, with ever 1750 HP.

The 15 machines of the A-0-Vorserie were delivered in the autumn 1942. The clearing-up machines were used at the polar sea squadron and in Italy.

Arado acre 240 A-row

The A-row laid out as destroyers should receive either two railways 605 with in each case 1475 HP or two railways 603 with in each case 1750 HP as engines. For increase in output reasons the ring radiator was so small dimensioned that at the chassis specially for the start auxiliary radiators had been attached. The first prototype of the A-row, the V-1 received however only two railways of 601 A-engines with in each case 1150 HP, since the intended engines were not yet available. The armament of the machine consisted of 4 mg 151 , which were attached individually in pairs in the fuselage nose and in the wing roots. A completely new development was after defense armament firing backwards, which were attached to the trunk upper and lower surface in a remote controlled tower in each case. These remote controlled towers (FDL 81 Z) were equipped and over a Pereskopvisier and a force moment amplifier were served with one mg each 81. The testing of the V-1 began in the autumn 1940.

Ar240A-O

Exactly the same as the V-1 also the pilot lot had to be equipped with alternative engines. With the six two BMWS 801 J engines with in each case 1440 HP produced machine A-0 were inserted. The machines were used to their development flights over the Soviet Union and England as fast reconnaissance aircraft and equipped for this purpose with two cameras in the engine cars. A speed increase could be achieved by the fact that one replaced the view hoods for the observer by linings. In addition the weapon towers were omitted.

Arado acre 240 b-row

With the testing of the machines of the A-row an unsatisfactory stability in the longitudinal axis was determined, what was attributed to the wing profile. These lack were repaired with the b-row, equally a pressurized cabin was inserted. The first experimental models of this row were the prototypes V-3, with two railways 601 A with 1150 HP each and the V-4, which the V-3 corresponded. Into series the b-series did not go however.

Arado acre 240 C-row

Since also with the b-series the instability of the longitudinal axis could be not completely repaired, the C-series was developed. With this series the wings were continued to improve. The main change was a larger span. The series was developed as reconnaissance fighter, was not presented however just like dei b-series in series. As prototypes the V-5 with two railways 6D 1 E, the V-6, V-7 and V-8 with the new railways 603 A engines was built. With the new engines were speed up to 675 km/h in 7000 m height possible. The experimental models were handed over to the troop and to evaluate itself as Auffklaerer extraordinarily.

Type: Twin-engine reconnaissance fighter.

Wing: Cantilever low-wing aircraft. Three-part, two-spar complete metal wing after the building block principle compound from noses -, cross-beam and trailing edge section. Center section rectangular with two-piece Fowler flaps of large depth. Outer parts trapezoidally with straight lines front edge.

Trunk complete metal bowl with oval cross section in front, running out into a circle, also in the tail of inserted adjustable dive brake and stabilizers. Pressurized cabin in the nose.

Tail unit: Cantilever horizontal tail unit with two vertical stabilizers as end plates. Structure of complete metal. All rudders with counterweight and trim tabs.

Chassis: Retractable normal chassis. Each main chassis consists of a shock strut with two wheels arranged next to each other. Drawing in takes place hydraulically to the rear into the engine cars. To the rear into the trunk retractable tail landing gear.

Engine: Two Daimler Benz railways 603 A air-cooled Zwoelfzylinder A engines with 2 x t750 HP of take-off power. Dreifluegelige adjustment propellers. Eight fuel tanks in the wing, one in the trunk. Fuel capacity of 2750 litres.

Crew: 2 men, consisting of pilot and navigator/contactor, back at backs in a pressurized cabin in the fuselage nose.

Military equipment: 6 x t5 mm mg 151 rigidly forward (two in the nose, two in the wing roots and two in tub under trunk). Two remote controlled rotating turrets EDL 131 Z with ever 2 x 13 mm mg 131 in B and C-conditions. Two cameras in the Steissen of the engine cars. Bomb locks for 1 x 1000 kg of bomb under the trunk. Additionally two further locks for 500 kg each under the surfaces could be attached.

The last version that acre 240 was the prototype acre 240 V-10, which was equipped to 2400 HP as night fighters with two Jumo 213-Motoren each.

Well i dunno, if you look at the engines and the nose i dont see how it can be mistaken for the He-219, i hope we get to fly it some day in FB http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif :

looks nice, i got this as 1:72 scale model, too. but thats nothing you would like to fly in an aircombat, i guess.
