|Manufacturer||Henschel & Son|
The Henschel Hs 124 was a twin-engine heavy fighter, attack aircraft and light bomber designed in Nazi Germany. After two prototypes had been built, work on the project was cancelled.
The first prototype had two liquid-cooled 12-cylinder Junkers Jumo 210A engines of 449 kW each (610 hp). It was fitted with a rotating turret with two 7.9 mm MG 15 machine guns in the nose.
The Hs 124 V2 had two 870 PS (860 hp; 640 kW) BMW 132Dc 9-cylinder radial engines and was armed with two 20 mm Mauser cannon, as well as a 7.9 mm MG 15 machine gun, carrying up to 600 kg of bombs.
The Hs 124 was Henschel's entry into the Luftwaffe's twin-engine Zerstörer (Destroyer) competition, losing to the Messerschmitt Bf 110.
