Abstract

IT is not here proposed to list all the aero‐planes in use with the Deutsche Luftwaffe, but only to describe some representative examples of the latest equipment. The German policy is known to have been the development primarily, of a strong striking force, so that the first really modern aeroplanes to be issued to the re‐born air arm were bombers. In the first place these were converted Junkers Ju 52–3m, followed by the military version of the Ju 86. Even the Heinkel He 111k, which is still one of the main bomber types, was flown as a prototype in 1936 in the nominal guise of a high‐speed passenger and mail aeroplane.
