At first glance, it might seem that the Hs 129 was an ideal choice for ground attacks. It had two engines, a heavily armored cockpit and the most powerful forward-firing cannon, which was mounted on mass-produced aircraft during World War II. The reinforced cockpit reliably protected the pilot from small arms fire. The German Luftwaffe planned to include him as its ultimate assassin, which will be very effectively deployed against Soviet T-34 type tanks.
