Henschel Hs 126

Henschel Hs 126 was a high-altitude observation aircraft designed for cooperation with ground units. The designer of the aircraft was Ing. Friedrich Nicolaus, which was based on the older type Hs 122. (reworked version).

Henschel Hs 129 - operational deployment

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.
