A rather more innovative and also rather risky (in that it was unproven) acquisition by the Ilmavoimat was the purchase of a manufacturing license by the State Aircraft Factory for the De Havilland “Wihuri” in mid-1937 (built under license in Finland). Ilmavoimat kertoo Twitterissä, että Hawk-koneet saattavat MM-kultaa voittaneet Leijonat Helsinki-Vantaan lentokentälle. Aiemmin tiedotettiin, että Hornet-hävittäjiä ei lähetetä ilmaan Leijonia vastaan The He 59B-2 was a four-seat mixed-structured twin-engined bi-plane maritime aircraft.. The wings were made of a two-beam wooden frame, where the front was covered with plywood and the rest of the wing was covered with fabric. The box-shaped fuselage had a fabric covered steel frame. The tail section was covered with lightweight metal sheets. The keels of the floats were used as fuel tanks – each one holding 900 liters of fuel. Together with the internal fuel tank the aircraft could hold a total of 2,700 liters of fuel. Two extra fuel tanks could also be placed in the bomb bay, bringing the total fuel capacity up to 3,200 liters. The propeller was fixed-pitch with four blades. With a crew of three, a speed of 146mph, a combat range of only 466 miles, a ferry range of 1,175 miles, and a service ceiling of only 16,400 feet, performance was limited. The aircraft could carry 4 × 250 kg (550 lb) bombs or 1 × 800 kg (1,760 lb) torpedo or 4 × 500 kg (1,100 lb) mines. Alternatively, 6-8 passengers could be carried.

The DC3 had a maximum speed of 237 mph, a range of 1,025 miles, a service ceiling of 24,000 feet and, with a Crew of 2, could carry 20 fully-loaded paratroops. They were powered by Pratt & Whitney R-1830 Twin Wasp radial engines of 1100hp each and could be fitted with skis or floats as well as wheels. They were taken too immediately by their pilots and served through the war years as the primary transport workhorse of the Ilmavoimat. The aircraft were allocated to LLv.18, (Flying Squadron 18) – 6th Flight Regiment (Air Transport).

Suomen Ilmavoimat. 388 Pins. · 21 Followers Now that it was possible to purchase more modern aircraft from the United States, albeit at a higher cost, the Ilmavoimat proceeded to do just that. The first truly modern fighter the Finns purchased was a direct result of this loan funding being made available. The Ilmavoimat Procurement Team had been well aware of the Curtiss Hawks, and had also been informed that the aircraft was a private venture by the company and thus it turned out to be far easier to contract for the numbers of aircraft that they wanted as they were not then being produced for the US Armed Forces, which was itself experiencing a massive buildup in strength. For the Finns, one of the joys of buying from the United States was the sheer scale possible for industrial production of aircraft. Having sourced limited numbers of fighter and bomber aircraft from the British, Italians, Germans and Dutch in the past, and having struggled to acquire more than a few aircraft at a time over an extended period, the sheer scale of what was possible with such financing available overwhelmed them. The Curtiss Hawks were acquired for approximately $55,000 each (approximately the same as for the Hawker Hurricane) with an additional amount for spare parts and, having had the prototype built in 1934, were able to be rapidly manufactured and delivered to the Ilmavoimat. An order for Curtiss Hawks was placed in mid-1937.Another and later source of supply were Vindicators that had been ordered for the French Air Force. The V156 (the export version of the Vindicator) was shown at the Paris Air Show in November 1938 and French interest had been aroused. The French Government decided in May 1938 to order ninety Vindicators as their own dive bomber program was falling apart. The first five were delivered to Orly in July 1939 and more were on the way as WW2 broke out. Some forty in all were delivered before Franch fell to the German onslaught. Circumventing the US Neutrality legislation, a further thirty Vindicators from the remaining French order, which had been already been repainted for sale to the UK, were reallocated to Finland and shipped to Petsamo in June 1940, entering service only in the final month of the Winter War where they saw little action.

The Hawk prototype had first flown in May 1935, reaching 281 mph (452 km/h) at 10,000 ft (3,050 m) during early test flights. The initial engine (the unreliable Wright XR-1670-5 radial engine) was replaced with a Pratt & Whitney R-1830-13 Twin Wasp engine producing 900 hp (671 kW) and the fuselage was reworked, adding the distinctive scalloped rear windows to improve rear visibility. Interestingly, a comparison of a Hawk with a Supermarine Spitfire Mk I revealed that the Hawk had several advantages over the early variant of the iconic British fighter. The Hawk was found to have lighter controls than the Spitfire at speeds over 300 mph (480 km/h), especially in diving attacks, and was easier to maneuver in a dogfight thanks to the less-sensitive elevator and better all-around visibility. The Hawk was also easier to control on takeoff and landing. Not surprisingly, the Spitfire’s superior acceleration and top speed ultimately gave it the advantage of being able to engage and leave combat at will, but the Hawk turned out to be an excellent fighter that proved itself effective in combat.With a crew of 2 (Pilot and Rear Gunner), the Ju87 B-2 was powered by a Junkers Jumo 211D liquid-cooled inverted-vee V12 engine, of 1184 hp / 883 kW giving a maximum speed of 242mph with a ramge of 311 miles and a service ceiling of 26,903 feet with a maximum 1,103lb bombload. Armament consisted of 2× 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17 machine gun forward and 1× 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 15 machine gun to the rear while a normal bombload consisted of a single 551lb bomb beneath the fuselage.While the Ba.65 was being blooded over Spain, a two-seat version, the Ba-65bis, had been developed, and export orders for the Breda assault monoplane had been solicited. Fifteen aircraft with 14K engines were ordered in 1937 by the Royal Iraqi Air Force (RIAF), 13 of which were Ba.65bis two-seaters equipped with a hydraulically operated Breda L dorsal turret mounting a 12.7mm Breda-SAFAT machine gun; the remaining two were dual-control trainers. Ten single-seat Ba.65s were delivered to the Soviet Union, and in 1938, 20 Ba.65s equipped with Piaggio P.XI C.40 engines–17 single-seat attack planes and three dual-control trainers–were delivered to Chile. In 1939, 12 Ba.65bis models with Fiat A80 engines and power turrets were ordered by Portugal for its Arma da Aeronautica. In June 1937, a Ba.65 was experimentally fitted with an American Pratt & Whitney R-1830 engine in anticipation of an export order from Nationalist China that was never placed.Following the successful trials of the prototype day bomber, the prodution order for forty aircraft was confirmed and construction was started by De Havilland. The forty Wihuris were built as fast bombers with construction starting in March 1938, and all forty were completed and handed over by December 1938. They could carry a 4000 lb bomb load and the design team had worked in external drop tanks which extended the range to 2500 miles. The fighter-bomber version completed it’s trials in June 1938, by which time the Ilmavoimat had confirmed an order for twenty of this type – and De Havilland started construction of the remaining twenty aircraft of the order as the fighter-bomber variant in November 1938. The fighter-bomber version had a strengthened wing for external loads and along with its standard fighter armament of four 20 mm Hispano-Suiza HS-9 cannon mounted in the fuselage and a further four 7.7mm Brownings mounted in the nose, it could carry two 250 lb bombs in the rear of the bomb bay and two 250 lb bombs under the wings. These aircraft were delivered in April 1939. An order for a further twenty had been placed in October 1938 as it was realized that VL (the State Aircraft Factory) would not be able to commence production until at least the end of the second quarter of 1939. These additional twenty fighter-bombers were delivered in June 1939. An order for a further twenty had been placed by then but this was canceled and the order was taken over by the RAF. However, the British did offer the Finns other aircraft in compensation – something that will be covered when we review 1939. Attempts to order more Wihuri’s from de Havilland as the Winter War broke out were declined.

The Junkers Ju 87 or Stuka (from Sturzkampfflugzeug, “dive bomber”) was a two-man (pilot and rear gunner) German ground-attack aircraft. Designed by Hermann Pohlmann, the Stuka first flew in 1935 and made its combat debut in 1936 as part of the Luftwaffe’s Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War. The Ju 87’s principal designer, Hermann Pohlmann, held the opinion that any dive-bomber design needed to be simple and robust. This led to many technical innovations, like the retractable undercarriage being discarded in favour of one of the Stuka’s distinctive features, its fixed and “spatted” undercarriage which, along with its inverted gull wings and its infamous Jericho-Trompete (“Jericho Trumpet”) wailing siren, becoming the propaganda symbol of German air power.The 1937 budget included provision for the purchase of fighter aircraft to fit out one squadron for the Merivoimat Air Arm. The stated objectives for the Air Arm Fighters were to provide fighter cover for Merivoimat ships operating in the Baltic and to provide fighter cover for Rannikkojääkärit (Marine) operations, primarily along the Gulf of Finland littoral. To this end, a fighter with a relatively long “loiter” capability was needed and for this (as for their dive bomber), the Rannikkojääkärit looked to their US Marine Advisory and Training Team for advice. Never slow to push the superiority of US aircraft (even when they weren’t) the US Marines pointed the Merivoimat procurement team at the fighters being developed for the US Navy to replace the Grumman F3F biplane. The Merivoimat Air Arm Procurement Team spent a considerable amount of time with the US Navy – they also talked to the British Fleet Air Arm, but considered their procurement to be too restricted by the RAF to be of any use. 2,659 отметок «Нравится», 39 комментариев — Ilmavoimat - Finnish Air Force (@ilmavoimat) в Instagram: «Videolla tunnelmia saattotehtävältä Hawk-ohjaajan näkökulmasta! .. The Curtiss SBC Helldiver was a two-place scout bomber built by the Curtiss-Wright Corporation. It was the last military biplane procured by the United States Navy. In 1932, the U.S. Navy gave Curtiss a contract to design a parasol two-seat monoplane with retractable undercarriage and powered by a Wright R-1510 Whirlwind, intended to be used as a carrier-based fighter. The resulting aircraft, designated the XF12C-1, flew in 1933. Its chosen role was changed first to a scout, and then to a scout-bomber (being redesignated XS4C-1 and XSBC-1 respectively), but the XSBC-1’s parasol wing was unsuitable for dive bombing. A revised design was produced for a biplane, with the prototype, designated the XSBC-2, first flying on 9 December 1935.The Heinkel He 59 was a German military aircraft designed in 1930 resulting from a requirement for a torpedo bomber and reconnaissance warplane able to operate with equal facility on wheeled landing gear or twin-floats. In 1930, Ernst Heinkel began developing an aircraft for the German Navy. To conceal the true military intentions, the aircraft was officially a civil aircraft. The He 59B landplane prototype was the first to fly, an event that took place in September 1931, but it was the He 59A floatplane prototype that paved the way for the He 59B initial production model, of which 142 were delivered in three variants. The Heinkel He 59 was a pleasant aircraft to fly; deficiencies noted were the weak engines (2× BMW VI 6.0 ZU water-cooled V12 engines, 660 hp each), the limited range, the small load capability and insufficient armament (Two or three machine guns).

The Ilmavoimat evaluated the Vindicator early in 1937. While they rated the aircraft highly, the Procurement Team went on to evaluate a number of other Dive Bombers before reaching a final decision to purchase the Vindicator in late 1937. An order was placed for 20 of the aircraft. Delivery took place in June 1938 and the Vindicators entered service shortly thereafter. Summons a hawk to your side. This is an Uncategorized Spell.

The XSBF-1—piloted by test pilot Bud Gillies—flew for the first time on December 24, 1935. Following initial testing, which found the aircraft to be reasonably faultless, the XSBF-1 was delivered to the U.S. Navy for evaluation in competition with two other biplanes submitted to the 1934 specification, the Great Lakes XB2G and the Curtiss XSBC-3. Unusually for biplanes, all three types possessed retractable landing gear. The evaluation showed that the design from Curtiss was superior to the Grumman and Great Lakes designs, and an order was placed for the Curtiss type, designated SBC-3 Helldiver in service, in August 1936.The Ilmavoimat/Merivoimat team evaluated the BT-1 in early 1937, but at this stage the prototype was undergoing a redesign to address issues indentified in testing.The aircraft was eliminated from consideration at this point, although it was agreed that it would be reevaluated following completion of the next version prototype. The final variant, the XBT-2, was a BT-1 aircraft modified to incorporate a fully retracting landing gear, wing slots, a redesigned canopy, and was powered by an 800 hp (597 kW) Wright XR-1820-32 radial air-cooled engine. The XBT-2 first flew on 25 April 1938 and after testing the US Navy placed an order for 144 aircraft. In 1939 the aircraft designation was changed to the Douglas SBD-1 with the last 87 on order completed as SBD-2s. The Northrop Corporation had become the El Segundo division of Douglas aircraft hence the change to Douglas. The U.S. Navy placed an order for 54 BT-1s in 1936 with the aircraft entering service during 1938. The BT-1s served on the USS Yorktown and Enterprise. The type was not a success in service due to poor handling characteristics, especially at low speeds, “a fatal flaw in a carrier based aircraft.” It was also prone to unexpected rolls and a number of aircraft were lost in crashes.The Merivoimat was also intent on purchasing a number of transport aircraft for use in a supporting role for the Rannikkojääkärit. With the Ilmavoimat’s decision to purchase DC3’s, the logical decision for the Merivoimat was to follow suite, and this they did. The Merivoimat’s DC3’s were delivered together with the Ilmavoimat order in December 1937 and in service in early 1938. Unlike the Ilmavoimat, the Merivoimat retained their DC3’s and used them over 1938 and 1939 to develop tactical doctrine of both providing transport support for Rannikkojääkärit operations and for the evolving tactic of parachuting Rannikkojääkärit troops into operations.

However, in the midst of all this the Finns had managed to have their order approved (after all, what use was a thirty million dollar loan for defence-related purchases if it couldn’t be used) and the forty Hawks ordered by the Ilmavoimat were the first off the production line. Subsequently, the shipment of forty Hawk 75A-1’s arrived in Turku in December 1938, and began entering service in March 1939. Delivery was completed with a second shipment of spare parts received in June 1939. The Curtiss Hawk Model 75A-1 made a welcome addition to the Ilmavoimat’s strength.

The first prototype constructed in 1934 featured all-metal construction with fabric-covered control surfaces, a Wright XR-1670-5 radial engine developing 900 hp, and an armament of one 0.30-cal. and one 0.50-cal. machine guns firing through the propeller arc. Also typical of the time was the total absence of armor or self-sealing fuel tanks. The distinctive landing gear which rotated 90 degrees to fold the main wheels flat into the thin trailing portion of the wing was actually a Boeing-patented design for which Curtiss had to pay royalties.

The SBN was a United States three-place mid-wing monoplane scout bomber/torpedo aircraft designed by the Brewster Aeronautical Corporation and built under license by the Naval Aircraft Factory in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The United States Navy issued a specification for a scout-bomber in 1934 and the competition was won by Brewster. One prototype designated the XSBA-1 was ordered on October 15, 1934. The prototype first flew on April 15, 1936, and was delivered to the Navy for testing. Some minor problems were found during testing and the aircraft was given a more powerful engine. What's the difference between the verbs hawk and hock? Both have associations with mercantile transactions, but the meanings and etymologies are distinct The Buffalo fighter was never referred to as the “Buffalo” in Finland; it was known simply as the “Brewster” or sometimes by the nicknames Taivaan Helmi (“Sky Pearl”) or Pohjoisten Taivaiden Helmi (“Pearl of the Northern Skies”). Other nicknames were Pylly-Valtteri (“Butt-Walter”), Amerikanrauta (“American hardware” or “American car”) and Lentävä Kaljapullo (“flying beer-bottle”). In Merivoimat service, the Buffalos were regarded as being very easy to fly, a “gentleman’s plane”. The Buffalo was also popular because of their relatively long range and flight endurance, and also because of their low-trouble maintenance record. This was in part due to the efforts of the Finnish engine mechanics who solved a problem that plagued the Wright Cyclone engine simply by inverting one of the piston rings in each cylinder. This had a positive effect on engine reliability. The cooler weather of Finland was also a plus for the engine. In the end, the Brewster Buffalo gained a reputation in Finnish service as one of their more successful fighter aircraft.

As it turned out, experience with the DH.88 would be put to use in designing one of the war’s finest aircraft—the de Havilland Wihuri (“Mosquito”). A second aircraft developed along the same lines was the de Havilland DH.91 Albatross. This was a four-engine British transport aircraft developed in the 1930s. A total of seven aircraft were built in 1938-1939. The DH.91 was designed in 1936 by A. E. Hagg to Air Ministry specification 36/35 for a trans-Atlantic mail plane. The aircraft was remarkable for the ply-balsa-ply sandwich construction of its fuselage which was later made famous in the de Havilland Mosquito bomber. The first Albatross flew on May 20, 1937. Production was limited and the type was retired in 1943.In RAF service, the Henley was not a great success as a target tug. The first modified Henley TT.III flew on 26 May 1938, and an order was placed for 200. In service it was discovered that the Merlin engine could not cope with high speed target towing. After a brief period towing large drogue targets, the Henley was retired in May 1942, in favour of the Boulton Paul Defiant, which was itself obsolescent as a front line aircraft. As a Target Tug, the Henley was powered by a 1,030 hp Rolls Royce Merlin II or III with a maximum speed of 272 mph with an air-to-air target or 200 mph with an air-to-ground target. It had a ceiling of 27,000 feet, a range of 950 miles and was unarmed.

The original estimates at the time of the initial meetings had been that as the bomber prototype had twice the surface area and over twice the weight of the Spitfire, but also with twice its power, it would end up being 20 mph (32 km/h) faster than the Spitfire. By December 1937 the prototype had been completed. The bulk of the Wihuri, as it was now being called, was made of custom plywood – and from the start, the Finnish wood industry was closely involved. The fuselage was a frameless monocoque shell built by forming up plywood made of 3/8″ sheets of Ecuadorean balsawood sandwiched between sheets of Finnish birch. These were formed inside large concrete moulds, each holding one half of the fuselage, split vertically. While the casein-based glue in the plywood dried, carpenters cut a sawtooth joint into their edges while other workers installed the controls and cabling on the inside wall. When the glue was completely dried, the two halves were glued and screwed together.

The SBU-1 completed flight tests in 1934 and went into production under a contract awarded in January 1935, with 125 being built. The Corsair was the first aircraft of its type, a scout bomber, to fly faster than 200 mph. Maximum speed was 205mph, range was 548 miles and armament consisted of 1x Fixed forward firing .30 in (7.62 mm) Browning machine gun and 1x machine gun flexibly mounted .30 in machine gun in rear cockpit and 1 x 500lb bomb. This aircraft was not evaluated by the Ilmavoimat – introduced into service in 1935, by 1937 it was already outdated.

It was the Fleet Air Arm’s first service monoplane, and was a radical departure for a service that was primarily equipped with open-cockpit biplanes such as the Fairey Swordfish. Performance for the fighter role was compromised by the aircraft’s bulk and lack of power, resulting in a relatively low speed; the contemporary marks of Messerschmitt Bf 109 made 290 mph (467 km/h) at sea level over the Skua’s 225 mph (362 km/h). However, the aircraft’s armament of four fixed, forward-firing 0.303 in (7.7 mm) Browning machine guns in the wings and a single flexible, rearward-firing Lewis .303 in (7.7 mm) machine gun was effective for the time (although whenever possible the gunner would try to replace this with a Vickers “K” gun which was more reliable and had a higher rate of fire).

On 6 June 1940, Naval reservists received orders to immediately fly 50 SBC-4’s to the Curtiss factory at Buffalo, New York. At Buffalo, a Bureau of Aeronautics inspector informed the pilots their aircraft were to be flown to Halifax, Nova Scotia to be loaded aboard the French aircraft carrier Béarn. From Buffalo to Halifax, the reserve pilots were officially employees of Curtiss. Curtiss paid each pilot $250 plus return rail fare from Halifax to Buffalo. All navy insignia were removed from their uniforms or taped over. Upon return to Buffalo, the pilots went back on Navy orders for return to their home bases. Curtiss employees worked overtime to remove and replace all gear and instruments marked BUAERO, BUSHIPS or BUORD. The Navy .30 in (7.62 mm) machine guns were replaced by .50 in (12.7 mm) guns and the aircraft were repainted in camouflage colors with the French tricolor on the rudders. The hasty conversion did not allow time for adequate checkout of replacement instruments. Weather deteriorated with rain and fog over most of the route from Buffalo to Halifax. The Bureau of Aeronautics inspector temporarily halted flights after one of the first pilots was killed in a crash between Buffalo and Albany. CHOGAN™ T-HAWK.

Delivery of all aircraft orded was completed by December 1937. It was originally designed for maritime reconnaissance but was soon rendered obsolete. However it was rescued from obscurity by its suitability as a multi-engine air crew trainer, and it was primarily for this purpose, with a secondary role as a light transport that the Ilmavoimat purchased the aircraft. All Anson’s purchased were attached to the Pilot Training School. The Ilmavoimat also at times used the Anson in operational roles such as coastal patrols and air/sea rescue. The aircraft’s primary role, however, was to train pilots for flying the Ilmavoimat’s multi-engine bombers and transports such as the Blenheim, SM-73 and DC3. The Anson was also used to train the other members of a bomber’s air crew, such as navigators, wireless operators, bomb aimers and air gunners.

The original dive brake was found ineffective and during the Ilmavoimat tests was removed in favour of extending the landing gear to act as an aerodynamic brake. It was also found that the LN.40 could not fly dive bombing missions with full fuel tanks and the test team decided the aircraft was too slow, with a maximum speed of only 236 mph.

In late 1937, as has been mentioned in passing, the Finnish Government (Minister of Finance Risto Ryti) negotiated a loan with the French Government for a roundUSD-equivalent-$8 million for the purchase of military equipment. As always, the bulk of the money went for equipment for the Armeijan, but the Merivoimat were allocated enough of the loan to buy the old Russian naval battleship guns in storage at Bizerte which were used to strengthen Finland’s coastal defences. And the Ilmavoimat were allocated funds sufficient to buy a number of French aircraft.

And by October 1939, VL production had actually started, with two aircraft a month rolling of the VL production line. With Soviet threats becoming ever more blatant, VL made every effort to ramp up production but the Winter War broke out before this could be achieved. However, by the end of November 1939 the first four Finnish-built Wihuri’s (all fighter-bomber variants) had been completed and were in service, bringing the total number available to 84 – and an increase in production to four a month would take place from December 1939 on.

OH-LCA “Sotka” was the first of a series of DC3 aircraft delivered to Finland prior to WW2. They flew as passenger aircraft prior to the Winter War, were mobilized by the Ilmavoimat for the duration of WW2 and post-war, after being refurbished, the survivors went back into passenger service with Aero Oy (which was be then renamed Finnish Air Lines). Ten of the DC-3s that survived the war were in operation from 1946 to 1965.The Ilmavoimat evaluation identified the production bottleneck issues with this aircraft and despite the promising performance of the prototype, it was eliminated from the shortlist as a result. Events proved this to be a correct decision.Among these purchases were a further 20 US Navy surplus Vindicators. These were well-used, but as second hand aircraft the cost was significantly reduced and they were shipped to Finland in summer 1939, along with a number of other second hand aircraft that had been purchased (these will be covered when we get to cover 1939 and the Emergency Procurement Program of that year, which was allocated some 45% of all Finnish State spending, significantly reducing funding for every other government program, albiet with some major but as it proved, short-lived, political fallout).The Kestrel’s maximum speed of 295 mph was actually higher than the Fokker D.XXI’s 280 mph and its six machineguns compared favorably with the four mounted in the Fokker. In the event, all forty Kestrel Trainer’s were at various times thrown into the Winter War as fighters, primarily used in the air defence of Turku, Vaasa, Tampere and Helsinki, and were flown by Instructors and students near graduation from the Fighter Pilot Training School, achieving some significant successes in attacks on Soviet bomber formations in the early days of the war. The Kestrel’s performance was quite remarkable, only 15 mph less than the concurrent version of the Hurricane, making it one of the fastest and most maneuverable trainers of its day. It would serve within the Ilmavoimat for the duration of WW2 and well into the 1950’s before it was retired.

Work on the Henley progressed slowly. The prototype took two years to complete, finally taking to the air on 10 March 1937. It could carry 4 x 500lb bombs on underwing racks. The Henley performed well in tests, but three years after issuing the initial specification the Air Ministry decided it no longer needed a new light bomber. However, rather than cancel the Henley, the Air Ministry decided to use the aircraft as a target tug. Somewhat ironically the Hawker Hurricane would later go on to perform a role very similar to that originally intended for the Henley, acting as a ground attack aircraft.The SBC-3 was the initial production model and was powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-1535 Twin Wasp Junior. The SBC-3 began operational service in 1938. A total of 83 SBC-3s were built. The SBC-4 was powered by a Wright R-1820 Cyclone. The SBC-4 entered service in 1939 with 174 SBC-4s in all being built. The US Navy took deliveries of the new aircraft in mid-1937 with the first batch of carrier-based aircraft going to the Yorktown, but time and technology caught up to the advanced biplane. The Finnish procurement team evaluated and tested a prototype aircraft in early 1937 but even at that stage, before it had enetered service, considered it an outdated design with inadequate performance.

Earlier in this Chapter, it was mentioned that there were two British aircraft and one Italian aircraft ordered almost immediately at the start of 1937. But I jumped to orders placed later in 1937…… So, to rectify the omission, here is one of those immediate orders…..It was the first RAF monoplane with a retractable undercarriage. A distinctive feature of the Anson was its landing gear retraction mechanism which required no less than 140 turns of the hand crank by the pilot. To forgo this laborious process, Ansons often flew with the landing gear extended at the expense of 30 mph (50 km/h) of cruise speed. The Anson required a crew of 3-4, was powered by 2× Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah IX radial engines, 350 hp (260 kW) each, had a masimum speed of 188mph, a range of 790 miles, a service ceiling of 19,000 feet and was armed with 1× .303 in (7.70 mm) machine gun in the front fuselage and 1× .303 in Vickers K machine gun in the dorsal turret. The Anson could also carry one 360 lb (160 kg) bomb or depth charge.

Your Source for Engineering Design Solutions The new Brewster fighter had a modern look with a stubby fuselage, mid-set monoplane wings and a host of advanced features. It was all-metal, with flush-riveted, stressed aluminum construction, although control surfaces were still fabric-covered. The XF2A-1 also featured split flaps, a hydraulically-operated retractable main undercarriage (and partially retractable tail wheel), and a streamlined framed canopy. However, the aircraft lacked self-sealing tanks and pilot armor. Fuel was only 160 U.S. gal (606 l), stored in the fuselage. Powered by an 950 hp (708 kW) single-row Wright R-1820-22 Cyclone radial engine, it had an impressive initial climb rate of 2,750 ft/min and a top speed of 277.5 mph (447 km/h), later boosted to 304 mph (489 km/h) at 16,000 ft (4,879 m) after improvements were made to the cowling streamlining and carburetor/oil cooler intakes. With only a single-stage supercharger, high-altitude performance fell off rapidly. Fuselage armament was one fixed .50 in (12.7 mm) M2 Browning machine gun with 200 rounds and one fixed .30 in (7.62 mm) AN Browning machine gun with 600 rounds, both in the nose. The US Navy awarded Brewster Aeronautical Corporation a production contract for 54 aircraft as the F2A-1.

The Avro Anson Multi-role Aircraft – ordered January 1937

In their search for a Dive Bomber to equip a single Merivoimat Dive Bomber Squadron in 1937, the Procurement Team evaluated a number of different aircraft before making a decision. Among these were the American Vought SB2U Vindicator, Northrop BT, Curtiss SBC-3 Helldiver, Brewster SBA and Grumman SBF, the British Blackburn Skua and Hawker Henley, the French Loire-Nieuport LN 410, the German Ju87 and the Italian Breda BA-65 ground attack fighter. The overall evaluatuion and flight testing program was lengthy, with a decision not reached quickly and an order was placed only shortly before the end of the year. And eventually, as with other purchasing decisions made in 1937, the final and major influencing factor was the sizable US loan that had been made available in 1937. Hawk. Old Abilities. Hawk. Summon. Level Kangasalan Sanomat on kaupungin vaikuttavin paikallismedia However, the spanner in the works for this order was a combination of a French order for the Curtiss Hawk and opposition from the USAAC. France in 1937, as a result of industry nationalisation and the recent introduction of the forty hour working week, suffered from production bottlenecks due mainly to the lack of mass production techniques and was having great difficulty in meeting its own aircraft production needs. The only realistic answer was foreign purchase, and with Britain also rearming at full speed, the United States was the only source for combat aircraft supply. Even before the Hawk entered production, the French Air Force had entered negotiations with Curtiss for delivery of 300 aircraft.

A decade of rich history and a fast growing community. A decade ago, Pixhawk was a student project at ETH Zurich. Little did the team know that it would end up having such a large influence on the.. Impressed by the prototype, the Merivoimat signed a statement of intent in December 1937 and concurrent with the US Navy order, ordered 20 of the F2A-1’s early in 1938 at an overall cost of US$1.5 million. The Merivoimat specified compatibility with 87-octane fuel and had the fighters de-navalized – removing all the naval equipment on the fighters, such as their tailhooks and life-raft containers, resulting in a somewhat lighter aircraft. The Finnish F2A-1s also lacked self-sealing fuel tanks and cockpit armor. After delivery to Finland, the Merivoimat Air Arm added armored backrests for the pilots, metric flight instruments, the Finnish Väisälä T.h.m.40 gunsight, and four .50 in (12.7 mm) machine guns. The top speed of the Finnish Buffalos, as modified, was 297 mph.

Distribute under the renowned brand individual products Tony Hawk Teething troubles were soon experienced with the new planes, and aircraft No. 16-29 was wrecked in a landing accident. Overall though, the Ba.65s proved effective in Spain, and were compared positively with the German Junkers Ju 87. In a unique engagement, on 24 August 1936 one of the Aviazione Legionaria pilots, a Sergente Dell’Aqua, scored an air-to-air victory when he encountered a lone twin-engine Tupolev SB-2 bomber over Soria and shot it down. Of the 23 Ba.65s sent to Spain, 12 were lost in the course of the civil war. The Ba.65s flew 1,921 sorties, including 368 ground-strafing and 59 dive-bombing attacks. During operations in northern Spain, several Ba.65s were converted to two-seaters, and one was experimentally fitted with an A360 two-way radio. At the end of the campaign in October, the squadron, now commanded by Capitano Duilio S. Fanali, was transferred to Tudela in Navarra, and in December the Bredas braved bitter winter weather conditions to participate in the battles for Teruel. After that city fell, the 65a Squadriglia, bolstered by the arrival of four more Ba.65s, took part in the Aragon offensive, which by April 15 had succeeded in cutting the Spanish Republic in two. During the Nationalist advance, the Ba.65s harassed retreating Republican troops, attacked artillery batteries and landing grounds, and bombed railway and road junctions.

The basic problem with the Ba.64 was its size in relation to its power plant. With a maximum speed of 220 mph, the new aircraft lacked the performance to be a very effective attack or reconnaissance plane, let alone a successful fighter. The first production Ba.64s were delivered in the summer of 1936 and were a profound disappointment. The Ba.64’s mediocre speed and heavy handling characteristics were anything but fighter like. Pilots considered them ill-equipped to undertake missions as a bomber or fighter with faults including being underpowered, heavy handling characteristics and a tendency to enter high-speed stalls that led to a number of fatal crashes. In 1937, the Ba.64s took part in a series of well- publicized military maneuvers, but they were withdrawn from service the following year. Modified into two-seaters with a 7.7mm machine gun in the rear, only a small number of Ba.64s were built for the Regia Aeronautica, since Breda was already working on an improved model, the Ba.65. Two Ba.64s were purchased by the Soviet Union in 1938. One was delivered to General Francisco Franco’s Nationalist forces in June 1937 and saw brief service during the Spanish Civil War. After limited use in front-line service, the Ba.64s were relegated to second-line duties.In testing of the first prototype over December 1937-January 1938, the prototype surpassed all estimates, easily besting the Spitfire in testing with a top speed of 392 mph (631 km/h) at 22,000 ft (6,700 m) altitude, compared to a top speed of 360 mph (579 km/h) at 19,500 ft (6,000 m) for the Spitfire. Construction of a prototype Wihuri fighter-bomber version was then carried out and in May 1938, Geoffrey De Havilland personally flew this off a 450 foot field. The first reconnaissance prototype followed on 10 June 1938. During testing of the bomber version, it was found that the Wihuri day bomber prototype had the power and internal capacity to carry not just the 1,000 lbs of bombs originally specified, but four times that figure. In order to better support the higher loads the aircraft was capable of, the wingspan was increased from 52 ft 6in (16.0 m) to 54 ft 2in (16.5 m). It was also fitted with a larger tailplane, improved exhaust system, and lengthened nacelles that improved stability.

A joint team from the Ilmavoimat and from VL, including VL’s lead designer Arvo Ylinen, were on the way within days of the contract being signed, and worked closely with De Havilland over an intensive four month design and prototype construction period. While the Finnish aircraft started off as an adaptation of the Albatross, the Ilmavoimat was from the first, looking for a fast lightweight tactical medium bomber and fighter-bomber capable of also filling a ground-attack role rather than a strategic heavy bomber. The designers worked to remove everything that was unneeded in order to lower the weight. The initial design had started off as an adaptation of the Albatross, armed with three gun turrets and a six-man crew, and powered by two Rolls-Royce Merlin engines. The designers started removing everything that was unneeded in order to lower the weight. As each of the gun turrets was eliminated, the performance of the aircraft continued to improve, until they realised that, by removing all of them, the aircraft would be so fast it might not need guns at all. What emerged was the concept that the Ilmavoimat team had been grasping at but had not quite visualized, a small twin-engined, two crew aircraft so fast that nothing in the sky could catch it. It could carry 1,000 lb (454 kg) of bombs for 1,500 miles (2,414 km) at a speed of almost 400 mph (644 km/h), which was almost twice that of contemporary British bombers. And at the same time, three basic design variations had been mapped out – a fighter-bomber, a medium bomber and a reconnaissance version. Tony Hawk official website In 1935, the U.S. Navy had issued a requirement for a carrier-based fighter intended to replace the Grumman F3F biplane. The Brewster XF2A-1 monoplane, designed by a team led by Dayton T. Brown, was one of two aircraft designs that were initially considered, together with the Grumma XF4F-1 – a “classic” biplane design with a double-row radial engine. The U.S. Navy competition was re-opened to allow another competitor, the XFNF-1, a navalized Seversky P-35, eliminated early on when the prototype could not reach more than 267 mph (430 km/h). The Brewster XF2A-1 first flew on 2 December 1937 and early test results showed it was far in advance of the Grumman biplane entry (while the XF4F-1 would not enter production, it would later re-emerge as a monoplane, the Wildcat).

When the weather improved, sections of three aircraft were dispatched from Buffalo Houlton, Maine. After landing at Houlton, the aircraft were towed down a road across the Canadian border for takeoff from a New Brunswick farm pasture to avoid legal implications of flying over the border. The surviving 49 aircraft flew over the Bay of Fundy and 44 of them were loaded aboard Béarn at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia together with 21 P-36 Hawk fighters and 25 Stinson 105’s for the French Armée de l’Air and five Brewster Buffalos for Belgium. France surrendered while Béarn was crossing the Atlantic; she turned south to Martinique, where the SBC-4s corroded in the humid Caribbean climate while waiting on a hillside near Fort-de-France. The five SBC-4s remaining in Canada when France surrendered were taken over by the United Kingdom and were used as ground-instructional airframes. Nothing practical was gained, and Finland missed out on what could have been a reasonably adequate ground attack aircraft. Fortunately, other aircraft were available and it was not a critical loss. The Hawk T1 entered RAF service in late 1976. The first export Hawk 50 flew on 17 May 1976.

The first of these orders was for an Advanced Training Aircraft. As mentioned, in 1936, with the rapid expansion of the Ilmavoimat well underway and with a rapidly increasing demand for training aircraft that was beginning to exceed availability, it had been decided that more Advanced Trainers were required and the VL Pyry prototype had been commissioned. However, this was not expected to be completed and thoroughly tested until 1938. At the same time it was also recognized that the State Aircraft Factory was already heavily committed to construction to meet existing orders and, while expanding capacity rapidly, could not deliver additional Advanced Trainers quickly and in the numbers needed. A decision was therefore made in the first quarter of 1937 to purchase Advanced Trainers from abroad in addition to the Pyry order placed with VL.While Italy sold aircraft, munitions and weapons to Finland, Mussolini was also quick to send aid above and beyond the Alpini Division that was in Finland conducting winter warfare exercises for the second year running. As was mentioned elsewhere, a small convoy of merchant ships accompanied the two Italian Light Cruisers sold to Finland and the merchant ships carried, among other cargo, two reinforced squadrons (12 aircraft each) of Regia Aeronautica volunteers – the 159a Squadriglia under Capitano Antonio Dell’Oro and the 160a Squadriglia under Capitano Duilio Fanali, both equipped with Breda Ba.65’s.An additional and important factor was that in early 1937, as mentioned in an earlier Post, the Finnish Finance Minister, Risto Ryti, had scored a major coup in negotiating a thirty million dollar loan on very favorable terms from the United States Government for the purchase of military equipment from US suppliers. A good half of this loan was allocated to the acquisition of artillery, munitions and the like for the Armiejan, twenty five percent to the purchase of industrial machinery while the remainder was allocated to the Ilmavoimat for the purchase of more modern aircraft, primarily fighters. In the same period (early 1937), the Finance Minister had also negotiated a substantial loan under similar favorable conditions from the French government for the purchase of French weapons, armored vehicles, aircraft and munitions. While there were accusations from the left that the country was being bankrupted and mortgaged into ruin to finance the military, this was an extreme left view that was largely ignored by the bulk of the electorate, many of whom were committed members of either the Civil Guard or the Active Reserves – which now included a sizable proportion of SDP members.

The Huddle - Steve Raible Divisional Preview While the De Havilland Mosquito was first proposed to the UK’s Air Ministry in late 1938 and the first prototype flew in November 1940, 10 months after the actual go-ahead, it could have come about much sooner. Throughout the 1930s, de Havilland had established a reputation in developing innovative high-speed aircraft such as the DH.88 Comet mailplane and DH.91 Albatross airliner that had already successfully employed the composite wood construction that the Mosquito would use. There two earlier aircraft were instrumental in the emergence of the Mosquito. The de Havilland DH.88 Comet was a twin-engined British aircraft that won the 1934 MacRobertson Air Race. It set many aviation records during the race and afterwards as a pioneer mail plane. The airframe consisted of a wooden skeleton clad with spruce plywood, with a final fabric covering on the wings. A long streamlined nose held the main fuel tanks, with the low set central two-seat cockpit forming an unbroken line to the tail. The engines were essentially the standard Gipsy Six used on the Express and Dragon Rapide passenger planes, tuned for best performance with a higher compression ratio. The propellers were two-position variable pitch, manually set to fine before takeoff and changed automatically to coarse by a pressure sensor. The main undercarriage retracted upwards and backwards into the engine nacelles. The DH.88 could maintain altitude up to 4,000 ft (1,200 m) on one engine.

Toggle navigation The negotiating process ended up being very drawn-out because the cost of the Curtiss fighters was double that of the French Morane-Saulnier M.S.406 and Bloch MB.150, and the delivery schedule was deemed too slow. Since the USAAC was unhappy with the rate of domestic deliveries and believed that export aircraft would slow things down even more, it actively opposed the sale to the French, which incidentally also impacted the Ilmavoimat order. Eventually, it took direct intervention from U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt to give the French test pilot Michel Detroyat a chance to fly the aircraft. Detroyat’s enthusiasm, problems with the Bloch MB.150, and the pressure of continuing German rearmament finally forced France to purchase 100 aircraft and 173 engines. yachtemoceans.com is an online yacht magazine about the ultimate lifestyle, yacht design, and interior design of superyachts and luxury yachts One further weakness of the Skua was that, as delivered to the British Fleet Air Arm, the Skua’s only means of radio communication was by Morse code back to the carrier. There was no speech-based radio communication with the carrier and not even Morse code communication with other Skuas. This meant communication between aircraft was limited to hand-signals or Aldis-lamp. This must have severely limited the ability of the Skua crews to co-operate, particularly in the fighter role – No “Tally Ho Red Leader, bandits 9 o’clock low” for the poor Skua pilots!

They were used in combat during Winter War in dive-bombing attacks against Russian motorized columns and troop and artillery concentrations. Performance was adequate and losses were light as long as air superiority was maintained against enemy fighters. However, perhaps the greatest Ilmavoimat loss in the Wimter War occurred on 19 January 1940 when Soviet fighters broke through the Ilmavoimat fighter cover and attacked a squadron of LN.411’s, resulting in the loss of 10 out of 20 dive bombers committed, while seven of the survivors were sufficiently damaged to be no longer airworthy.

  4. Designated XSB2U-1, one prototype was ordered by the US Navy on 15 October 1934 and was delivered on 15 April 1936. Accepted for operational evaluation on 2 July 1936, the prototype XSB2U-1, BuNo 9725, crashed on 20 August 1936. During the Navy tests a number of problems were uncovered. It had been intended to equip the aircraft with a reversible propeller to act as a dive brake; however, this proved to be difficult to use and became technically unsatisfactory. As a replacement, Vought constructed a dive flap that consisted of a number of finger-like spars mounted near the wing leading edge that, during normal flight, were flush with the wing surface but during a dive could be extended at right angles to the wing surface to slow the aircraft. These flaps failed to work satisfactorily because they caused so much drag that full engine power was needed to maintain control. Additionally, the flaps caused severe aileron buffeting, and weighed some 140 pounds. As a result, the Navy decided to adopt a shallower dive angle and to extend the landing gear to act as a form of dive brake. The prototype was also modified to include additional bracing on the pilots and observers canopies. The successful completion of trials led to an initial order for 54 aircraft from the US Navy in October 1936.

In June 1937, one of the small team of Ilmavoimat officers based in London and managing the procurement program from British aircraft manufacturers was invited to view the new De Havilland Albatross. Having already seen the De Havilland Comet, this officer was also aware of De Havilland’s 1935 proposal to the British Air Ministry for a high speed all-wooden bomber. Interested by the suitability for Finland of the Alabtross’s construction techniques and material composition, aware of VL’s research program with regard to the earlier Haukka II Fighter which had led to innovations in the Finnish timber industry and putting two plus two together, this officer made further inquiries about the possibility of designing and building such a high-speed bomber for the Ilmavoimat, along with licensing production by Finland.

Service testing of the XF2A-1 prototype began in January 1938 (testing in which a Merivoimat Air Arm evaluation team participated) and in June, production started on the F2A-1. They were powered by the 940 hp (701 kW) Wright R-1820-34 engine and had a larger fin. The added weight of two additional .50 in (12.7 mm) Browning wing guns and other equipment specified by the Navy for combat operations reduced the initial rate of climb to 2,600 ft/min. Plagued by production difficulties, Brewster delivered all aircraft ordered by the Merivoimat but only delivered 11 F2A-1 aircraft to the US Navy (the remainder of the order was diverted to Finland in modified form to fill the additional Finnish order place in mid-1938).With a crew of 2 (Pilot and Gunner), the BT-1 was powered by a single Pratt & Whitney R-1535-94 Twin Wasp Jr. double row radial air-cooled engine of 825 hp (615 kW), giving a maximum speed of 222mph with a range of 1,150 miles and a service ceiling of 25,300 feet. Armament consisted of one forward and one rear-facing machinegun and a 1,000lb bomb carried under the fuselage.

The history of the Finnish Air Force - Ilmavoimat

Evolved from the Ba.64, the Ba.65 was a single-seater intended as an interceptor and attack-reconnaissance plane. It was armed with wing-mounted armament of two 12.7mm and two 7.7mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns together with an internal bombbay for a 440-pound bomb-load in addition to external ordnance that could total 2,200 pounds. The prototype was powered by a Fiat A80 RC41 18-cylinder, twin-row radial engine with a takeoff rating of 1,000 hp. The prototype was first test-flown by Ambrogio Colombo in September 1935 and production of the Ba.65 began in 1936, the initial model having a Gnôme-Rhône 14K 14-cylinder radial of 900 hp. The single-seat Gnôme- Rhône version of the Ba.65, of which 81 were built, attained a maximum speed of 258 mph at 16,400 feet and 217 mph at sea level. Maximum cruising speed was 223 mph at 13,125 feet, and range was 466 miles with a 440-pound bomb load (rather less at 342 miles when carrying a full bomb load). The service ceiling was 25,590 feet. Starting from the 82nd aircraft, the more powerful Fiat A.80 RC.41 18-cylinder, twin-row radial engine with a takeoff rating of 746 kW (1,000 hp) engine was adopted. Production ceased in July 1939 after 218 aircraft were built by Breda and Caproni. Ilmavoimat haluaa korvata Perhon onnettomuudessa tuhoutuneet Hawk-hävittäjät, kirjoittaa Keskisuomalainen.

However, in July 1939, Loire-Nieuport received orders for 36 LN.401 production dive bombers for the Fench Navy, and 36 LN.411 aircraft for the French Army. The LN.411 was almost identical to the LN.401, expect for the deletion of the arrestor hook, the wing folding mechanism and the emergency flotation devices. The first LN.411s were delivered in September 1939, in which month the French Air Force ordered 270 more. But in October 1939 General Vuillemin refused to accept these aircraft for the French Air Force. At this stage, with war with the USSR looking almost certain, Finland made a request that the 36 LN.411s completed for the Army (and not wanted) be sold to Finland. The French government agreed over the protests of the Navy and the aircraft were flown to Finland in November 1939 following the France-UK-Norway-Sweden-Finland route.The Royal Air Force also displayed interest in the aircraft, tested the Hawk H-75A’s and found them to be generally inferior to both the Hurricane and Spitfire in both speed and armament. Comparison of a borrowed French Hawk 75A-2 with a Supermarine Spitfire Mk I revealed however that the Hawk did have several advantages over the early variant of the iconic British fighter. The Hawk was found to have lighter controls than the Spitfire at speeds over 300 mph (480 km/h), especially in diving attacks, and was easier to maneuver in a dogfight (thanks to the less sensitive elevator) and better all-around visibility – the Hurricane, Spitfire and the Bf-109 all tended to exhibit heavy control forces at these speeds. The Hawk was also easier to control on takeoff and landing and was found to be more maneuverable than the Spitfire at any speed, athough the Spitfire had a better sustained turn rate. The Hawk French pilots had also commented on the ease and rapidity of maneuvers. Not surprisingly, the Spitfire’s superior acceleration and top speed ultimately gave it the advantage of being able to engage and leave combat at will. Although Britain decided not to purchase the aircraft, they soon came in possession of 229 Hawks comprised of diverted shipments to occupied France and aircraft flown by escaping French pilots. Ilmavoimat Hawk 35 vuotta. Тип - Текстура. Автор - Polymorph. December 16. 2015 marked 35 years of service of Hawk jet trainer with the Ilmavoimat (Finnish Air Force) For the dive-bombing role, a single 250 lb (110 kg) or 500 lb (230 kg) bomb was carried on a special swinging crutch under the fuselage, which enabled the bomb to clear the propeller arc on release. Four 40 lb (20 kg) bombs or eight 20 lb (9 kg) Cooper bombs could also be carried in racks under each wing. The 500lb AP and SAP bomb was only used against armoured warships, for attacks on merchant ships and ground targets the normal bombload was a 250 lb bomb in the fuselage recess and either 20lb or 40lb bombs on the light series carriers. The 250 lb bomb had only a little less explosive content than the 500lb SAP and AP bombs (the extra weight of the latter was down to the casing, needed to punch through armour). If used against ground targets the SAP and AP bombs would often bury themselves deep before exploding, reducing the blast effect. The small and largely ineffective 100 lb anti-submarine (AS) bomb could also be carried in the fuselage recess.

Detailed instructions in English By way of contrast, the Vought XSB2U-1 was a conventional low-wing monoplane configuration, with a retractable tailwheel undercarriage and the pilot and tail gunner seated in tandem under a long greenhouse-style canopy. The fuselage was of steel tube construction, covered with aluminum panels from the nose to the rear cockpit, and with a fabric covered rear fuselage, while the folding cantilever wing was almost completely fabric except for a metal leading edge. A 700hp Pratt & Whitney R-1535 Twin-Wasp Junior radial engine drove a two-blade constant-speed propeller, which was intended to act as a dive-brake during a dive bombing attack. A single 1,000 lb (450 kg) bomb could be carried on a swinging trapeze to allow it to clear the propeller in a steep dive, while further bombs could be carried under the wings to give a maximum bombload of 1,500 lb (680 kg).

Contribute to orhanobut/hawk development by creating an account on GitHub The Hawker Henley was designed as a light bomber in response to British Air Ministry Specification P.4/34 of February 1934 for a light bomber and close support aircraft, with high performance and a low bomb load. It was however to be fully stressed for dive bombing and a speed of 300 mph was mentioned. The resulting aircraft was very similar in appearance to the Hurricane, sharing most of the wing and the tail plane with that aircraft as well as many of the assembly jigs. The main difference between the two types was the cockpit, with the Henley designed to carry a two man crew – pilot and observer/ air gunner. Suomen Ilmavoimat .

The M.9 Kestrel, powered by the 745 hp (555 kW) Rolls-Royce Kestrel XVI V-12 engine, could reach 295 mph (475 km/h), had a range of 393 miles, a crew of two (Instructor and Student) and had a service ceiling of 28,000 feet. In trainer form, the Kestrel was equipped to carry eight practice bombs, plus one .303in Vickers machine gun mounted in the front fuselage. It was also modified for use as a Glider Tug and the Ilmavoimat aircraft were designed and built with six wing-mounted .303 in Browning machine guns to enable use as an emergency fighter. Kestrels were built by Phillips and Powis Aircraft Limited at Woodley, Berkshire (UK).The Ba.64 prototype was powered by a Bristol Pegasus radial engine, license-built by Alfa Romeo, in a long-chord cowling, which was later replaced by an Alfa Romeo 125 RC35 engine rated at 650 hp. The Ba.64’s undercarriage retracted rearward into the wings. The open cockpit was placed well forward on the fuselage in line with the wing roots to provide an excellent field of vision down as well as forward. The headrest behind the open cockpit was extended as a streamlined fairing all the way down the fuselage upper decking to the tail. It was constructed using a frame of chrome-molybdenum tubing skinned with metal, except for fabric over the rear fuselage and control surfaces. Armament consisted of four 7.7mm Breda-SAFAT guns in the wings and up to 880 pounds of bombs in racks under the wings.The Vought SB2U Vindicator was a carrier-based dive bomber developed for the United States Navy in the 1930s, the first monoplane in this role. In 1934, the United States Navy issued a requirement for a new Scout Bomber for carrier use, and received proposals from six manufacturers. The specification was issued in two parts, one for a monoplane, and one for a biplane. Vought submitted designs in both categories, which would become the XSB2U-1 and XSB3U-1 respectively. The biplane was considered alongside the monoplane design as a “hedge” against the U.S. Navy’s reluctance to pursue the modern configuration.

Within the US Navy, the Vindicator was by now well-tried and popular. However, by late 1938 it was beginning to be phased out as the new Douglas SBD Dauntless aircraft began to be delivered. Both the US Navy and Vought were wondering what to do with the surplus Vindicators. This was opportune for Finland. Early in 1939, with the threat of war with the USSR increasingly a risk and the deteriorating European situation, the Finnish Finance Minister, Risto Ryto, had negotiated a further loan from the USA (although not in the same ballpark as the 1937 $30 million amount) and additional war supplies were being purchased whereever they were available.

Stepping back a little, in August 1939 VL began to experiment with mounting a 37mm Anti-tank gun in the aircraft, intending to use this as a counter-measure to the overwhelming numbers of Soviet tanks should a war occur, as was seeming more and more likely. With the assistance of De Havilland, an auto-loader was designed and built by a British company, Molins, to allow both semi- or fully-automatic fire with the nose-mounted gun. Ground trials of the auto-loader proved successful, as did experiments in how best to mount the gun within the Wihuri. The November 1939 production run of two aircraft were fitted with the 37mm gun in the nose for air trials, along with two .303 in (7.7 mm) sighting machine guns. With the outbreak of the Winter War on the 30th of November 1939, the trials were “live” – and highly successful. But while highly effective, the 37mm gun did require a steady and vulnerable approach-run to aim and fire the gun and there was a weight penalty. Given the overwhelming numbers of tanks the Red Army was throwing at the Armeijan, it was decided however that the benefits of an airborne anti-tank gun were well worth it and that the next series of Wihuri’s off the VL production line would be this version.The Merivoimat Air Arm purchased 10 of these aircraft in early 1937 to use as a light transport and SAR aircraft. During the Winter War they were also used at times to ferry long range reconnaissance patrols behind enemy lines and to retrieve them.1937 was a relatively straightforward year for VL (the State Aircraft Factory) – delivery of the Fokker D.XXI fighters, Bristol Blenheim bombers and Viima trainers continued, monopolising all of VL’s construction capacity. However, for the 1937 Ilmavoimat / Merivoimat Air Arm Procurement Team it was a rather more challenging year. Budgetary provisions for the Ilmavoimat in 1937 had increased and Somersalo and the Fighter advocates were pushing strongly for a front-line fighter which would be on a par with the more modern fighters that were even now beginning to supersede in capabilities the Fokker D.XXI in other european air forces. In addition, the Merivoimat had a (what was for them) large budget allocation for aircraft for the Merivoimat Air Arm (the 1937 Merivoimat budget included provision for one fighter squadron and one dive-bomber squadron as well as a limited number of transport aircraft).

HAWK (verb) meaning, pronunciation and more by Macmillan Dictionary Also in early 1937, the newly formed Finnish Special Operations Command had begun experimenting with gliders and had purchased a small number of the German DFS230 Gliders from the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Segelflug for trials. By mid-1937 it had been decided to design and build gliders for the Special Operations units and the newly forming Parajaeger (Paratroop) Division, and with additional DFS230’s being built for training, tugs were needed. An additional order was placed towards the end of 1937 for a further 20 Miles Kestrel’ to be delivered specifically for the glider-towing role, with the bottom of the rudder cut away to allow fitting of a towing hook. These 20 aircraft were also delivered in mid-1938 and were used exclusively by the Glider Training School. The forty Advanced Trainers were later modified to allow them to also be used as Glider Tugs.

During the late 1930s, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini was fond of putting on impressive shows to demonstrate his country’s martial capabilities. For displaying Italian air power, his weapon of choice was the Ba.65 – the large attack bomber its hefty fuselage had a look of blunt-nosed pugnacity thanks to its single radial engine. To foreign observers prior to World War II, the Ba.65 was the dominant symbol of Italian air power. In December 1936, Mussolini, stepping beyond his effort to instill a more martial spirit in his people with propaganda flyovers, decided to give his military personnel some experience in a real conflict–the Spanish Civil War. His program to assist Franco’s Nationalists included the establishment of a 250-plane aerial contingent, the Aviazione Legionaria. The first installment of that force consisted of four Ba.65s unloaded at Palma, Mallorca, on December 28 1936, to be joined by eight more on January 8, 1937. In March, the attack planes were transported to Cádiz, along with newly arrived Fiat C.R.32 fighters, on the steamship Aerienne. The last of the Ba.65s arrived on May 3 and were formed into the 65a Squadriglia Autonoma di Assalto under the command of Capitano Vittorio Desiderio.

These problems were to be resolved by installing the Daimler-Benz DB 600 engine, but delays in development forced the installation of the Jumo 210 Da in-line engine. Flight testing began on 14 August 1936. Subsequent testing and progress fell short of Richthofen’s hopes, although the machine’s speed was increased to 280 km/h (173 mph) at ground level and 290 km/h (179 mph) at 1,250 m (4,000 ft), while maintaining its good handling ability. Despite teething problems with the Ju 87, the RLM ordered 216 Ju 87 A-1s into production and wanted to receive delivery of all machines between January 1936 and 1938. The Junkers production capacity was fully occupied and licensing to other production facilities became necessary. The first 35 Ju 87 A-1s were therefore produced by the Weserflug Aircraft Company Limited (WFG). By 1 September 1939, 360 Ju 87 As and Bs had been built by the Junkers factories at Dessau and Weserflug factory in Bremen.

Sotilaskoneet Hävittäjiä Ilmavoimat Lentokoneet Kulkuvälineet Maisemia Rusetit Heroes Lentokoneet In combat from January 1940 and equipped with Finnish manufactured bombs, the Ba.65’s proved reasonably effective at first although vulnerable to Soviet fighters and AA fire. Steady attrition (some 50% were lost in action by the end of February 1940, primarily to AA fire), a shortage of spare parts and a realization by the Ilmavoimat that the large single-engined attack bomber was both ungainly and highly vulnerable AA fire and could only be used successfully where fighter cover and AA fire suppression was provided resulted in the phasing out of the Bredas in both the 160a and the 159a Squadriglia. The surviving aircraft were retained as ground attack trainers for a short period and were then stored for use only in an emergency situation. The heroic Italian airmen were amalgamated into a single squadron and reequipped with Blenheims from the UK that had been sold to Finland. Thus the strange situation came about where Italian Pilots flew British-supplied Blenheims while in the Middle East they fought against them…..During the Battle of the Ebro in July 1938, the 65a Squadriglia, now under the command of Capitano Antonio Miotto, used its Ba.65s as dive bombers for the first time, striking at pontoon bridges that the Republicans had thrown across the Ebro River. By September 1938, attrition had whittled the squadron’s complement of aircraft down to eight, but six more Ba.65s arrived, and in January 1939 the squadron–again under a new commander, Capitano Giorgio Grossi–was at Logroño and ready to take part in the final offensive against Catalonia. The Ba.65s’ final mission was flown from Olmedo on March 24. When the war ended five days later, the 65a Squadriglia had logged 1,921 sorties, including 368 ground-strafing and 59 dive-bombing attacks. Of the 23 Ba.65s sent to Spain, 12 had been lost–an acceptable enough record if one discounted the relative ineffectiveness of the aerial opposition they faced most of the time. When the airmen of the Aviazione Legionaria returned to Italy in May, they bequeathed their 11 surviving Ba.65s to the Spanish Ejercito del Aire.In looking for a good low-wing monoplane trainer, the Ilmavoimat Procurement Team had sounded out their contacts in various countries. Within the UK, this led them to examine the Miles Magister, which was designed specifically as a trainer for the RAF, serving as an ideal introduction to the Spitfire and Hurricane for new pilots. The Magister first flew in March 1937 and the RAF ordered it in large numbers with production commencing in October 1937. At the same time, F.G, Miles, the designer, had been working on the design for the Miles Kestrel advanced trainer and at the time the Ilmavoimat Team contacted him (in July 1937), the prototype was about to fly – indeed, it was demonstrated at the Hendon Airshow (in the UK) in July 1937. Hawk provided a good basis for training instructors on fighter jets, as the machine was a sufficiently powerful and demanding training platform for fighter tactics.

#ilmavoimat The Ilmavoimat/Meroivoimat Procurement Team evaluated and test flew the aircraft and considered it outstanding, placing it first in the overall rankings of the aircraft they evaluated. For financial reasons, the Vindicator was selected over the Henley for the Merivoimat’s first Dive Bomber Squadron. However, the Ilmavoimat would revisit the question of purchasing the Hawker Henley some two months later, in January 1938.The wings were similar but used different materials and techniques. The wing was built as a single unit, not two sides, based on two birch plywood boxes as spars fore and aft. Plywood ribs and stringers were glued and screwed to form the basic wing shape. The skinning was also birch plywood, one layer thick on the bottom and doubled up on the top. Between the two top layers was another layer of fir stringers. Building up the structure used an enormous number of brass screws, 30,000 per wing. The wing was completed with wooden flaps and aluminium ailerons. When both parts were complete the fuselage was lowered onto the wing, and once again glued and screwed together. The remainder consisted of wooden horizontal and vertical tail surfaces, with aluminium control surfaces. Engine mounts of welded steel tube were added, along with simple landing gear oleos filled with rubber blocks. Wood was used to carry only in-plane loads, with metal fittings used for all triaxially loaded components such as landing gear, engine mounts, control surface mounting brackets, and the wing-to-fuselage junction. The total weight of metal castings and forgings used in the aircraft was only 280 lbs. The glue used was initially casein-based. Silver hawk br. Read more. Silver X-range - Pure aluminium.
