Model Airplane Depot

$39.19 $48.99


During the 1930s, Henschel was asked to design and build a ground attack aircraft capable of providing support to ground troops. On this specific request, the robust Henschel Hs-123 biplane was born, which began to be distributed to the departments during 1935. The first operational use took place during the Spanish Civil War in the flight departments of the Condor Legion. Thanks to its 880 hp BMW radial engine, the Henschel Hs-123 was able to reach a top speed of 340 km / h. and could carry a good offensive load. During the Second World War, although he had proved his strength and reliability, the rapid technological and engine evolution relegated him to supporting and flanking roles. Pilot figurine not included.
