Welcome to another addition of Warplane Wednesday, where I bring attention to rare, unique, or just left out aircraft not featured in the game currently, and give it the spotlight for all to talk about and enjoy.

 

This week is a German attack plane that's very offsetting, its the P.194!


 

The Blohm & Voss P.194 was a design for a mixed-power ground-attack aircraft and tactical bomber developed in Germany during World War II. Like some of Richard Vogt's other designs for Blohm & Voss, the P.194 featured an asymmetric layout.

Along with the P.192, P.193, and P.196, the P.194 was one of four designs Blohm & Voss submitted in response to a requirement issued by the RLM in February 1944 for a replacement for the venerable Junkers Ju 87. The basic design of the aircraft echoed that of the BV 141: the crew and weapons carried in a nacelle separate from the main fuselage structure that carried a propeller-driven engine at one end and the empennage at the other, joined together by a common wing. In the P.194, however, a turbojet was to be added at the rear of the cockpit pod and the design intended that the thrust from this engine would help balance the thrust from the propeller. A powerful cluster of guns was to be located in the nose, and a bombload of up to 500 kg (1,100 lb) was to be carried in an internal bomb bay in the fuselage.

All four Blohm & Voss designs were rejected by the RLM, which instead selected the Messerschmitt Me 262 to fill the tactical bomber role.

I never understood the reasoning for the off centered Cockpit.  I mean I get that the Millennium Falcon has one but an airplane just seems odd.

Good hunting, fly fast, shoot faster or die in flames.
