I was thinking how unusual it was that the Germans never had a biplane in WWII Eastern theatre that we Sovs could shoot down. But then I read up on th Henschel HS 123 a biplane that was more or less obsolete, but found a new lease of life as a bomber/ ground support plane.
Why:

1: It`s ability to deliver immediate support to troops on the ground, accurate to within yards of friendlies.

2. It`s manoueverability allowed it to often evade fighters.

3: Ability to fly in pretty bad conditions: While snow & freezing temps kept other planes grounded, it could keep going.

4. It seemed that Flak had a lesser effect on it than other close support planes.

The HS 129 took over later. But the Hensvhel went on till 1944, it was incredibly useful to the Germans.

I got this from my little Jane`s book. But it would be nice to see ( and shoot down ) Even the Lufty`s might like it .


Can someone provide a Picture?


Olegg, could you provide this aircraft in your coming ADD-ON for FB?

I agree. This would be my number 2 plane to add after the 110. It would be very useful indeed.

Yes, I'd like to see this as well. Until then, I'm hoping that Xanty's CR. 42 will be a nice substitute.

The exterior of the Hs123?

Then the modeller should give it to someone else to finish it!

Galland flew a Heinkel He 51 in ground attacks with the Legion Condor during the Spanish Civil War in 1937. He served in a fighter bomber squadron (II./ LG 2) during the war against poland, too, but he wanted to be a fighter pilot. So he was transferred to Jagdgeschwader 27 at the western front and then to the JG 26, where he fight in the Battle of Britain and on the western front. Galland never flew combat missions at the eastern front.


But for the Hs 123...YES please

Yes, my error./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif Got carried away with Galland being a GA pilot.;( Barbarrosa did not start until June '41 and Galland transferred to fighters in April '40.

In Spain, he flew something like 300 missions as Staffelkapitan of 3/J 88.
