For me, it's a Me Bf 110 G-2 (+HM ), maybe II./ZG 1

defensive gun looks like the MG 81Z, the image is a bit dark but one may see the small (Spark plug?) air scoops slightly ahead of the engine exhaust stacks which should make this a DB 605 engine thus Bf 110G

Thank you very much for your replies, von thoma and Denniss... :wink:

It is very difficult for me to distinguish between both variants....
Here, another example... :?

Hi all,

Not exactly an identification aircraft question but....Does somebody have any idea about the protuberance (red circle) in this Do 17Z ?

possibly a Z-5, those are floatation devices in case of emergency ditchings to prevent sinking of the aircraft. Those Z-5 are reportd as almost exclusively used by Kü.Fl.Grp. 606

Thank a lot for your help, Denniss.
It is the first time that I see an image of this variant of the Do 17

What variant of Flettner 282 is this? Certainly not an A-1. Is it a modified B-2, perhaps? The tail's rudders are more reminiscent of a twin tail, the cockpit looks almost fully enclosed, the rotary mount is fully enclosed and judging by the curvature of the body, the rear spotter's seat is gone. Any thoughts?

For comparison to a B series

it seems early prototypes, namely V2 and V3, had fully englazed cockpits. The luftarchiv image is claimed to be V3 by some sites.

Hi all,

Not a german plane but.... Is this a Machhi MC202 or a MC205 ?

How is it possible to differenciate between both models externally ?

isn't there C.202 written on the tail?
Airframe Id should be the small number on the rear fuselage.
C.202 had a Bf109-style flat oil cooler under the engine, the C-205 two barrel-shaped coolers under the engine
