Blohm & Voss P 196
|Role||Dive bomber and close support|
|Manufacturer||Blohm & Voss|
Twin BMW 003 engines were slung in pods under the fuselage centre section. To make room for the main undercarriage twin tail booms were attached to the straight, tapered wings, with the undercarriage retracting into the front of the booms. The tailplane was raised midway up the twin tail fins, in order to clear the jet exhaust, with twin tailwheels retracting beneath.
Up to two 500 kilograms (1,100 lb) bombs could be carried in bays within the tail booms. Forward-firing armament comprised two MK 412 cannon and two MG-151 guns.
