Henschel 123 article available


Air War Publications is pleased to announce that Part One of Morten Jessen's Henschel 123 eArticle is now available to download from our website (

The article serves as a preview of the fascinating story of the Henschel 123 soon to be told by Morten in book form. Part One of the eArticle deals with the development of the little biplane dive-bomber and ground-attack aircraft, and its early operational service, including its involvement in the Sudeten crisis, and its much more active role with the Condor Legion over Spain in 1936 and 1937. The limited foreign use of the Hs 123, by Spain and China, is also dealt with, and the final section of the article touches upon another vital role played by the aircraft: its service in various Luftwaffe training schools. The scene is then set for Part Two, which will cover Hs 123 operations during the Second World War.

Seventeen excellent photographs of the Hs 123 accompany the text, along with photos of two of its main rivals in the competition to become the first Luftwaffe dive-bomber. These are just a taste of the large collection of Hs 123 shots that Morten has amassed over the last decade. Finally, to round out the article an appendix provides colour profiles of the typical camouflage schemes worn by the aircraft.

We hope our readers enjoy this article, and that it whets their appetite for Part Two, and for Morten’s forthcoming book.

All the best,
Morten & Andrew
