The “Unnamed” Ground Attack Aircraft. In the middle of 1944, the Junkers aircraft company worked on a project for a low-level ground attack aircraft to replace the Henschel Hs 129. The engines were to be two Daimler Benz ZTL 109-007 double-bypass jet engines and had a reduced fuel consumption and were designed by Prof. Dr. -Ing. Karl Leist. Two men comprised the crew and they sat in a cockpit in the aircraft’s nose. the design lived on with the US Fairchild A-10 “Thunderbolt II” or “Warthog”.
I made it as part of a modding project for the Total Reskin group for the PC game Hearts of Iron IV, to add a unique progressive ground attack aircraft to the Germans.
