The official AHF Axis aircraft quiz thread

Postby Marcus Wendel » 18 Aug 2005 16:47

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and now that this new section has been opened, I'm starting one here too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on the aircraft used by the Axis nations) and so on.

According to my reference (Lentäjän näkökulma) Finns tried to buy BMW-801s from Germany in 1941. I'm not rather sure if the information is correct since I read the book long time ago, so maybe we call this a draw?

Martti was first :wink:

And the plane on the picture was left to Ülemiste by Estonian pilots due of engine failure, so - Estonians gave it to Russians who didn't use it against Germans - will be the correct last part of the sentence :P

And should I also mention that they took one as present with for Swedes :lol:
