  3. Hs 126 is a good plane. it was used a lot on eastern front as a reconnaissance plane
  4. Hello! I found this plane as I was digging through some forgotten plane projects. So here it is! History: When Germany was preparing for war in 1937, it was clear that reconnaissance planes will be needed, as this was important tactic in Blitzkrieg. Henschel saw potential in this and made Henschel Hs 122. But that plane received mixed feelings, so Henschel put a more powerfull Bramo 323 in virtually the same fuselage. The result was Henschel Hs 126. It was known for its very low takeoff distance and good low-speed handling. Production started in 1937 and ran to 1942. It was primarily used for observation in early stages of the war, but was later relagated to glider tug and night ground attack, with Fw 189 and Fieseler Storch taking its original role. In 1942 the plane was removed from service. About 600 planes were produced. Interesting fact: Henschel Hs 126s were used in 1943s rescue of Benito Musolini. They were towing 10 DFS 230 attack gliders. Pictures: MAY CONTAIN SWASTIKAS! Henschel Hs 126 startup. Possible paint schemes for Hs 126.
