Книга Heinkel He-111 Kagero Monografie v.II. Heinkel He-111 Kagero Monografie v.II. Книги Вооружение Формат: pdf Размер: 108 Язык: Русский0 (голосов: zero) Оценка:Немецкий самолет Heinkel 111- один из самых знаменитых бомбардировщиков. Рабочие фирмы "Хейнкель " за характерную форму крыльев называли его "летающей лопатой" ("Fliegende Schaufel"). Летчики окрестили этот самолет "Мальчиком на побегушках" ("Maedchen fuer alles ") за то, что он использовался для решения самых разнообразных задач. Не 111 поднял на большую высоту престиж Люфтваффе на междуна­родной арене. Успешное применение самолета в Испании вызвало у английских и французских политиков своеоб­разный психоз страха и вынудило их пойти на значи­тельные уступки Гитлеру. Не 111 прошел всю 2-ю Ми­ровую войну и был, вместе с Ju 88, основным немецким бомбардировщиком Люфтваффе.Самолет Хейнкель Не 111 проектировался как гражданский авиалайнер, но его военный потенциал оказался намного важнее, и он стал одним из самых серийных бомбардировщиков Люфтваффе. Первые поставки были сделаны в конце 1936г. В начале Второй мировой войны Не 111 был основным бомбардировщиком Германии. Но крупномасштабное появление самолетов Ju 88 и уязвимость Не 111 от атак истребителей привели к тому, что бомбардировщики Хейнкель стали в основном применяться в ночных операциях, а затем использоваться как транспортные самолеты. Всего к осени 1944г. для Люфтваффе было выпущено 7300 машин всех вариантов; кроме того, 236 самолетов Не 111Н были построены компанией CASA в Испании под обозначением CASA 2.
