Details

This pack contains one Henschel Hs132. The Hs132 was a jet powered dive bomber and interceptor aircraft designed for the German air force. It was never put into production. It was an unorthodox design with a single jet engine placed above the canopy of the airframe. One of the design principles behind the aircraft was a desire to reduce the total size which could be fired at by an enemy bomber. This resulted in the un-usual location of the jet engine. Construction of the Hs132 started in March and it was due for its first test flight in June 1945. That was overtaken by events.
