BV 215

the Blohm und Voss P.215 designed by Dr. Richard Vogt was, on paper, the definitive all weather night fighter for the Luftwaffe. Looking over the proposed electronics packages gives one the impression they are looking at a 21st century front line machine with IFF systems and bad weather radio assist landing gear among many other features. Internally contained radar, massive forward and upward firepower and a four hour loiter time would have made this beast a formidable opponent Blohm & Voss BV P.215.02 Dimensions Span Main Wing Span Length Height Track Width Wing Area 18.8 m 61' 8" 14.4 m 47' 3" 11.6 m 38' 1" 5.0 m 16' 5" 2.8 m 9.2' 63.0 m² 678.13 ft² Blohm & Voss BV P.215.02 - Weights Empty Weight Crew Ammunition* Fuel Equipment Bombs Flying Weight* Wing Loading 7400 kg 16314 lbs 300 kg 661 lbs 600 kg 1323 lbs 6500 kg 14330 lbs 766 kg 1689 lbs 1000 kg 2205 lbs 14680 kg 32364 lbs 233 kg/m² 47.7 lbs/ft² *Ammunition and flying weight varies according to weapons load, listed weight for five MK 108 w/120 rounds each Blohm & Voss BV P.215.02 Performance Max.
