It was nicknamed "tank operer". I think that it is nice to add it next to Stuka. What do you guys think?

Sure it could be possible, but even if we all know what this plane looks like you could show us some pictures and post more info. This way the devs will be amazed by this plane and all of them will want to skin and model it.

The Hs-129 is probably one of the most requested German planes for FH.

Thanx Anlushac11 I envy you that u have whole collection of WW2 weaponry pictures. This one, however, doesn't seem to have cannon installed. I might be wrong, I though that 30 mm cannon (short) or 75mm cannon (long) is attached to the nose of the plane?

Look just under the yellow nose and you can see teh gun barrel, looks to be about 30mm to me.

I cheat :)

Open Yahoo

enter the manufactures name and designation of the aircraft, ergo: Henschel HS-129

enter and after it does a search go to the top and click images and yahoo will do a search only for pictures.

right click on image and click on copy image location (see if there are notes forbidding remote linking)

in your thread type: " "

Dont use the quotation marks and the brackets and IMG part has to be capital letters.

guys thanx for instruction. For the pictures I like Big LeBowSki's one better. It has the typical mark of Hs-129, the antenna-like cannon. Hs-129/30 mm should look similarily but shorter.

I didnt post the 75mm version because it is debatable that it was even used in combat and handling was so bad that the weapon pod could be jettisoned and parachuted to ground in case aircraft had problems or was damaged.

The 30mm and then the 50mm versions were much more common. Problem was it was a excellent airframe but never got decent engines. With a pair of BMW 801's this puppy would have been real nasty.
