    Well here is all that could muster up about the He-111J

    He-111J-0 was powered by 2 DB-600CG and was intended as a torpedo bomber.

    He-111J-1 was essentially the same but used as a bomber and had a bomb load of of 5600lb and 90 were built.

    Hallo guys!!!
    I've found the another info on He111J-1 :
    At the beginning of the 1938 the Heinkel factory was asked to build a torpedo bomber variant of He111.The He111J ,equipped with DB 600CG 699kW(950hp) engines,was produced simultaneously with He111F-4.However,The Luftwaffe resigned from J-1 as a torpedo bomber and all of 90 (the other source states 80) produced aircrafts were rebuilt into bombers equipped with ESAC 250.
    the additional info:
    max speed 415 km/h (257.9MPH) at 5000m
    max weight 10600 kg
    range 1500 km
    bomb load 2000 kg
    armament 3* MG15 7.9mmm machine guns, two 765 kg LT F5b torpedoes or 2000 kg of sea mines
    One of He111J-1 was fitted with four-bladed propellers for testing purposes.
    Other specifications were the same as for the earlier He111F.


    there a link to two photos of He111J-1

    Hallo Waken !!!
    The ESAC 250/IX cartridge was a device for dropping bombs.He111 standard bomber was equipped with eight ESAC 250 in its internal bomb bay.Certainly, ESAC 250 is an abbrreviation and it stands for (in German) Elektrische-Senkrecht-Aufhangung fur Cylinderbomben 250/IX, in English - an electric activated vertical bomb rack system mark IX for cylindrical bombs up to 250 kg.
    It was possible to load into the cartridge one 250 kg bomb or 4*50 kg using an adaptor or four adaptors Gr4 C10/VII with 16 bombs 10kg in each of them.Besides, ESAC 250 was adapted for loading four containers BSK-36 for one kilogram incendiary bombs B1EI.Each of them contained 36 bombs.

    best regards.

    Okay, interesting. Don't think I knew about the He-111J but then I rarely take notice of version numbers on bombers.
