 Kurt Tank - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There, he designed the IAe Pulqui II based on the Focke-Wulf Ta 183 design that had reached mock-up stage at the end of the war.
Before Focke Wulf, Tank was employed by Albatros Flugzeugwerke, but after their bankruptcy in 1929, the company was broken up with most of the designers going to Focke-Wulf and a few others going to Arado in 1931.
Tank then started work on the design of the Fw 44, Focke Wulf's first commercially successful design, launched in 1934. /wiki/Kurt_Tank

 Focke-Wulf Ta 183 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ta 183 had a short fuselage with the air intake passing under the cockpit and proceeding to the rear where the single engine was located.
1945, the Luftwaffe High Command selected the Ta 183 to be developed and produced.
After the war, the Soviets found the Ta 183 plans and decided to continue the project, beginning the construction of six prototypes in March /wiki/Focke-Wulf_Ta_183

 Focke-Wulf Ta 183
However, in the postwar years a number of Ta 183 lookalikes was built, including the MiG-15, the Saab J29 Tunnan, and Kurt Tank's Pulqui II, built in Argentina.
The Ta 183 was a swept-wing jet fighter. /~pettypi/elevon/gustin_military/db/ger/TA183FOC.html

From 1940 the Focke-Wulf premises in Bremen were naturally a British bombing target; this had been foreseen and buildings were bomb-hardened.

 Focke-Wulf Ta 183 Decal Review by David W Aungst (Gekko Graphics 1/48)
But the Ta 183, itself, is mostly just one more "paper project" that was on the drawing boards of the German design teams at the close of the second World War.
There are two separate decal releases for the Ta 183 (with the promise of a third in the future).
Surprisingly, this is the only Ta 183 in the whole lot with a mouth. /decals/gekkowi48002reviewda_1.htm

 Focke-Wulf Ta 183...
X PLANES OF THE THIRD REICH SERIES An Illustrated Series on Germany's Experimental Aircraft of World War II The Focke-Wulf Ta 183 "geheim projekt" came from the mind of aircraft design genius Hans Multhopp.
With its single HeS 011A turbojet engine and signature "Multhopp T-tail" it had been selected for immediate series production by the RLM in March, 1945, and Focke-Wulf officials believed that the 183's maiden flight might occur as quickly as June, 1945.
Post-war the Ta 183 became the "mother" of the Soviet MiG-15 and the Argentine IAe 33 "Pulqui II" which Kurt Tank built for PresidentŽ Juan Per—n. /books/titles/SCH0801.htm

 Focke-Wulf Ta 183 (X Planes of the Third Reich) (David Myhra)
Myhra repeats the now discredited theory that the Soviet MiG-15 was a "reworking" of the Ta 183, rather than an original design, as has become clear since the relevant Soviet information has become available since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Even more of a stretch is Myhra's assertation that the English Electric Lightning was a reworking of a design that Ta 183 designer Hans Multhropp did for the RAE in 1947.
But in the book there are no good three-view line drawings (I know that such a drawings are aviable for Ta 183). /bookshop/us/product/0764309072.htm

 Focke-Wulf Ta 154
But the wooden construction raised problems, and when the factory that produced the glue for its contruction was bombed, it was decided to abandon the Ta 154.
The Ta 154 was a wooden twin-engined fighter.
This design was inspired by the succes of the British Mosquito, and showed promise, with good performance and fine handling. /~pettypi/elevon/gustin_military/db/ger/TA154FOC.html

 AMTech 1/48 Ta-183
When the designer, Kurt Tank emigrated to Argentina in the late 1940's he had hopes of building the Ta-183 there, however, his design was altered to form the Pulqui II, which had a high mounted wing instead of the center mounted wing of the 183.
However, like many late war projects, the Ta-183 never was built, and not even a full wooden mockup was completed as the deteriorating war situation prevented it.
Normal armament for the 183 was to be two or four Mk 108 30mm cannon. /scotts/axis/luft/fw/ta183preview.htm

 Focke-Wulf Ta 183 by Mr Tsuguo Sakuma (AMtech 1/48)
The Focke-Wulf Ta Ta183 was designed by Kurt Tank, but perharps Hans Murthopf had a greater input to the work.
Additional European aircraft influenced by the design of the Ta 183 include the MiG-15, MiG-17 and the Flying Beer Barrel of Sweden, the SAAB J29.
The Messerschmitt P1011 design influenced the American F86 Sabre; while the Ta 183 influenced the Mig15 - the classic sibling rivals of the 1950s, like Cain and Abel before them. /ta183ts_1.htm

 Focke Wulf TA-183 Hückebein
The Focke Wulf Ta-183, so designated in recognition of its designer, Kurt Tank, was to be a single seat jet fighter, powered by one Heinkel HeS 011 axial flow turbine.
The aircraft was to be with either 4x15 mm, 4x20 mm or 2x30 mm cannon and was to have provision for carriage in a recessed bomb bay, of 1x500 kg., 1x250kg., 5x50kg.

Multhopp who, as a young gifted aerodynamicist at Focke-Wulf, was a member of Kurt Tank's advanced design team responsible for the Ta 183.
The Ta 183 was the officially recognized identifier however, soon thereafter it became known by the nickname Huckebein, after a cartoon raven who got others into trouble.
The Ta 183 Ra-3 was to revert to the HeS 011 but without the rocket motor. /aircraft/WWII/huckebein/info/info.htm

This may explain the resemblance of early MiG jets to the 183.
Inside the end opening box you find one relatively flash free sprue of light grey plastic with 22 parts and one clear sprue with the one piece canopy all contained in one sealed plastic bag.
It is not known how far production had progressed by the end of the war and the drawings and parts are thought to have fallen into Russian hands. /meltingpot/portland/971/Reviews/luft46/ta-183_pm.htm

 Focke-Wulf Ta 183 by Brett Green (AMtech 1/48)
The Focke-Wulf Ta 183 was a design for a high-speed interceptor/fighter with mid-mounted 40° swept wings of wooden construction; a high raked fin and angled horizontal tailplanes.
Jigs and plans for the Ta 183 were seized from Focke-Wulf by Soviet occupation forces and delivered to the MiG design bureau.
Indeed, the Ta 183 design was a direct forerunner of the MiG-15, one of the most influential fighter aircraft in history. /features01/ta183bg_1.htm

In this case, the Ta 183 was a close call, but never got there.
That is just as well because they likely would have been an outstanding aircraft out hunting B-29 bombers in the skies over the Reich.
Luft '46 is a term used to describe aircraft that the German aviation industry was working on at the end of the second World War. /browse/modelspg/ta183%20huckebein.html

 EAW Dispersal
Later given the designation as Ta 183A-1 and planned for the first production aircraft scheduled to be completed by October 1945 but no examples reached assemply because on April 8, 1945 British troops captured the Focke-Wulf aircraft facilities.
The eventual variant that fulfilled the Emergency Fighter Competition conference in Febuary 1945 held by the Luftwaffe High Command was the Ta 183/I as the fighter project was nicknamed "Huckebein".
In 1944 Kurt Tank proposed the Ta 183 as a contender for the German Air Ministry's requirement for an emergency fighter. /firm.html

 FW Ta-183
The Ta 183/I (Project I) comprised of a stubby fuselage, 40 degree swept wings and a 60 degree swept fin with a highly positioned tail.
This model was designed by Kurt Tank (The Ta stands for his name).
The fighter had to be able to operate at high altitude in order to reach the Allies' high-flying B29 bombers and Mosquitos. /New%20Design/English/Models_Aircraft_6.htm

The Ta 183 was one of the German second-generation jet fighter designs that were to be powered by the axial-flow Heinkel Hirth HeS 011a of 13 kN planned thrust.
The design scheme of the Ta 183 differed from the existing fighters - a notable peculiarity was its T-layout of the empennage, where the horizontal surface was placed atop a long rearward-swept vertical tail surface.
The Ta 183 was optimised to deliver the best performance between 8000 and 14 000 m, i.e. /fockewulf/navod_eng.htm

 THE GREAT PLANES Community - The Ta 183 and the MiG-15
The MiG-15 wing sweep was 35 degrees at quarter-chord; the Ta 183 was swept back 40 degrees (32 degrees in the later Project II.) The tail of the MiG-15 was swept at 56 degrees, the Ta 183 at 60 degrees.
Once again, the Ta 183 is not mentioned, except to note that Kurt Tank was "invited" to continue his work in the Soviet Union, with specific mention of Ta 183 project.
At the time the OKB was supposedly making the Ta 183 copies, they were engaged in several other projects, including the I-270, MiG-9, and the genesis of the "S," which would become the MiG-15. /Public/snitz/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=200 - focke-wulf, Model Kits, Militaria, Diecast Vehicles items at low prices
