Since we haven't had a new question in over a month let's get this quiz started again with an aircraft ID:

Wow! I've seen the Bu-181 with a panzerfaust, but this one. If I'm correct, and the name seems to be on the photo, what in the world was the
Braunschweig LF-1 Zaunkönig doing with a panzerfaust? The Third Reich could not have been that desperate. Please, the details if you know them.

Cheers!

Hello uhu.
Yes your ID is absolutely correct. I too was surprised and the source is a bit sketchy whether the "light anti-attack" version was ever actually deployed in combat. Nonetheless it was proposed;
By this time, interest in civil aircraft fell to zero for the Third Reich needed only fighting vehicles. And Herman Winter proposed a new concept of using LF.1. After minor modifications, the aircraft can be used as:

reconnaissance aircraft for submarines;

towing glider;

training aircraft;

light anti-attack aircraft.

In the latter case LF.1 is a lightweight and inexpensive to manufacture aircraft for applying a single assault against, and who do not mind it would lose in battle. As armament was provided one bazooka "Panzerfaust", mounted on the upper wing and the pilot as a personal weapon could take a carbine.

Your turn now!

Quite a suggested finish for an experimental STOL aircraft! Anyone with a quiz question is welcome to post it.
