Unknown aircraft (to me)

Post by Panzerspitze » 21 Feb 2010 21:34

Is the twin-engined aircraft in the first picture some sort of Do-17 variant, or even a missile offshoot? I can't make out the obstructed cockpit very well from the picture.

Are the fighters in the second picture of a captured Italian model? I can't match it against Italian fighters such as the Macci C.202 or Fiat G55.

And the first picture is indeed a Do-17, a Do-17P.

With all due respect, existing Heinkel documents pertaining to the Heinkel He 100 only refer to the pre-production/production He 100 as the He 100A-0 and make no mention whatsoever of "He 100B", "He 100C", or "He 100D", in which case the assertion in the book Warplanes of the Third Reich by William Green that there were four He 100 variants and that the completed production He 100s were called "He 100D" is incorrect.
