Drool. One of my favorite aircraft. I wonder what would have occured if the Luftwaffe had He-100s in the BOB. Regardless of its performance it is a gorgeous fighter to boot. Got any more pics?

That one is a colorised version of the mythical He-110 .. actually prewar He-100's painted up for propaganda purposes. RAF pilots reported combat with the non-existant He-110 throughout the battle of Britain.

I have more pics at home but they are not scanned.

As far as an operational version goes .. it seems the protype was faster and potentially better than the 109. The most credible reason for it not being produced is there was a shortage of DB601's and it was decided they should go to the already tried and tested 109 while the preferred alternate fighter the fw190 was not based on a DB engine.

Looks like the same pic, cropped different and somehow colored different.

According to something I think I remember reading somewhere once (so it must be true) the He100 flew air defence over the Heinkel factory...

Which means, if true, it flew more combat missions than a number of planes we have in-game.

taken from LuftArchiv.de, translated by me:

The RLM refused to produce the aircraft in mass, in the consequence 6 prototypes were sold to Russia and 3 He-100 D-0 went to Japan.
The last 12 fighters were made an industrial squadron.
