    Good luck with that...the Hu211 is about as rare as hen's teeth.

    Only two prototypes built and eventually destroyed by bombing raids.

    I'll dig into my books and see what I can find, but don't get your hopes up

    The Hütter Hü 211 was supposed to be a He 219 with extended wings (comparable to Ta 152H vs Fw 190D) and Jumo 213/222/603L engines.

    So you're saying a pic/drawing is unnecessary?

    Design and development

    Wolfgang Hütter had been a peripheral figure in the design of German aircraft in World War II, specializing in glider construction. However, his glider expertise could usefully be employed in long-range, high-altitude aircraft, and Heinkel suggested he be involved in the modification of their He 219 aircraft for long-range reconnaissance and as a night fighter.

    Hütter was asked to complete the design as quickly as possible, and borrowed heavily from the existing He 219, Junkers Ju 288 and Dornier Do 335. The only original parts were the wings and tail surfaces, which were constructed from wood as a weight-saving measure to enable better performance. The wings were extremely long, and resembled those of a high-performance sailplane. The cockpit was pressurized and, like the He 219, fitted with ejectable seats. The finished product was meant to be delivered in February 1945 and to be able to evade British de Havilland Mosquito fighters. There were also plans for variants powered by jet engines for the purpose of achieve higher altitudes but these were never carried out.

    Work was stopped after the two prototypes were destroyed by an air raid in December 1944.
