Heinkel He 119


An experimental two-seat reconnaissance or bomber aircraft, the He 119 had a DB 606 'double' engine (2 V12 engines reversed coupled), buried in the fuselage, passing between the two pilots, and driving a propeller in front of the transparent, unstepped nose. To streamline the aircraft even more, it used surface radiator cooling instead of conventional radiators. First flown mid- 1937, it set a speed record before WWII.
The He 119 V2 was equipped with standrad radiator.
The He 119 V3 had two catamaran floats.
The He 119 V4 was destroyed after a flight achieving more than 595 km/h.
Attempts to create a bomber from it were abandoned early in WWII. Four were completed.
