Henschel Hs 123

The Henschel Hs 132 was a World War II dive bomber and interceptor aircraft of the German Luftwaffe that never saw service. The unique design featured a top-mounted jet engine and the pilot in a prone position. The Soviet Army occupied the factory just as the Hs 132 V1 was nearing flight testing, the V2 and V3 being 80% and 75% completed. In whole, the design was very similar to that of the Heinkel He 162 "Volksjager", another jet-powered aircraft that made it to production and featured a top-mounted turbojet, slim fuselage and a split "T" tail section. Where the Hs 132 differed from the Heinkel design was in that it was to be a dedicated dive bomber.
