Heinkel He 111 H-6
SCALE & KIT
The Heinkel He 111 is a German fast and medium bomber designed by the Günter brothers at the Heinkel Flugzeugwerke company in the early 1930s. He 111 is sometimes described as a “sheep wolf” At first it was disguised as a transport aircraft. He 111 was used by the Luftwaffe in the early days of World War II, symbolizing German airspace, featuring the “cage” nose and the ability to bombard and attack. But in the Air War in the United Kingdom, He 111 exposed defects in self-defense. However, when heavily damaged, He 111 is still capable of keeping altitude.
Heinkel He 111 is used in many tactics: bombing in the United Kingdom, torpedoing in the Baltic Sea front, transport and bombing in the Eastern, Western, Mediterranean and North Africa fronts.
Despite improvements several times, Heinkel He 111 was gradually sacked in the later stages of World War II. Because the Luftwaffe did not have enough time and capacity to design another aircraft to replace He 111, older He 111s continued to be used until 1944.
On February 8, 1945, Mikhail Petrovich Devyatayev and 10 other prisoners flew a He 111, making a magical escape from the Nazi concentration camp in Penemünde.
