Heinkel He 2

Svenska S.2



The He.1s were followed rapidly by the He 2, a tandem two-seat open-cockpit seaplane, with larger-span wings allowing better and safer takeoffs and landings.
Engine types again were varied, the 268kW / 360-hp Rolls-Royce Eagle IX, 223kW Hispano-Suiza, or 298kW Liberty being preferred. He 2s were also built in Sweden by Svenska Aero AB and served with the Swedish air force in the reconnaissance role, continuing in front-line service until 1928. In Sweden the He 1 and 2 were designated S 1 and S 2 respectively.
The Svenska S.2 was exported to Finland and possibly other countries.

Maximum level speed: 185km/h
