More New Nazi Craft
The list of new German aircraft types is steadily lengthening. Among the latest said to be under construction are the FW-154 and FW-191, twin-engined fighters, and the FW-300, a six-engine long-range transport.
Further, Heinkel is making the new He-234, four-engine bomber-transport; the He-277, an improved version of the He-177 bomber; and the He-280 jet fighter, powered by two Junkers Jumo 004 units. In addition, Messerschmitt has brought out the Me-243 and Me-250, long-range four-engine bombers, and Henschel has the Hs-294, a development of the Hs-293 radio-controlled glider-bomb.
Several virtually undamaged Heinkel He-177s were captured in France, giving experts a chance to study plane's special power installation, consisting of four DB-603 engines two fitted in each nacelle to drive single props.
