When German planners decided that they needed an aircraft dedicated to a ground-attack role to disrupt and destroy troops on the ground in World War II, the twin-engined Henschel Hs 129 (nicknamed 'Panzerknacker', meaning tank cracker) was the result of their development efforts. This book covers the Hs 129's development and operational career and also provides numerous photos and illustrations detailing its camouflage schemes. Photos of the type in service and specially commissioned line drawings and color artworks illustrate all of the He 129's variants, including those that never left the drawing board. Many of these images are previously unpublished, making this book an essential addition to the limited range of publications available on this important aircraft type.
