X PLANES OF THE THIRD REICH SERIES_x000D_An Illustrated Series on Germany's Experimental Aircraft_x000D_of World War II_x000D__x000D_The Focke-Wulf Ta 183 "geheim projekt" came from the mind of aircraft design genius Hans Multhopp. With its single HeS 011A turbojet engine and signature "Multhopp T-tail" it had been selected for immediate series production by the RLM in March, 1945, and Focke-Wulf officials believed that the 183's maiden flight might occur as quickly as June, 1945. Post-war the Ta 183 became the "mother" of the Soviet MiG-15 and the Argentine IAe 33 "Pulqui II" which Kurt Tank built for Presidente Juan Peron. This photographic history of the 183 by David Myhra features 129 mostly previously unpublished photos, three-view line drawings, and stunning state-of-the-art digital color images. _x000D_ AUTHOR:
