Germany : Hs 129 B-2
The German Henschel Hs-129 was a single-seater twin-engine attack aircraft built for combat with tanks. In the winter of 1940, Henschel received an order for a series of Bs-109 planes. With the occupation of France, a large number of Gnome-Rhone 14M engines were confiscated, each running at 700 hp. Experiments with installing more powerful engines led to the creation of the Bs-109B, which had superior specs to the original Bs-109 and could return all the way to base if forced to fly with only one engine.
Serial production of the Bs-109B-1 began in 1941, and May of the following year saw the launch of the modified Bs-109B-2, which had a modified fuel system (along with several other minor changes).
