Exports to Japan

Hi

Yesterday I looked through all the original paperwork for export of German a/c to Japan, all have w/n number quoted except for three Fh 104 a/c that were to be used as photographic a/c. Question is did these three get delivered and what was the w/n

Re: Exports to Japan

I have never encountered any reference to the Fh 104 in Japan and no such aircraft were listed as exported there.

I haven't heard from you for a while!!

There were many original letters with price and delivery on these 3 Fh 104 a/c but no indication of an order, so you are probably correct in saying none went. There were similar docs on Ju, Bf and Fw a/c and these had confirmation of orders and c/n of the a/c involved. There were 2 Bf 108 with c/n to Manchu Koku K.K
There were lots of letter on trying to sell L 25 for glider towing duties but the Japanese politely stalled on an order before saying no thanks. They also tried to sell them the DLH Ha 139 fleet!!

Re: Exports to Japan

While talking about aircraft exports to Japan, I found several German export documents with indication on two Hs 129s that were supposed to be sold there. However, I found no confirmation if this sale was actually completed (I suppose not). Can you confirm/infirm this sale?

Thanks,

Re: Exports to Japan

Hi Denes

Lots of correspondence re these but no confirmation orders in the files, these files complete from 38-45 and any orders placed appear to be in the files, so my view Denes is no sale took place

Re: Exports to Japan

Thanks, Tony. That's what I thought, too, but had no confirmation so far.

Re: Exports to Japan

Hi all,
Can anyone confirm how many of the He-119 aircraft went to Japan and if they actually got there? I believe 2-3 were supposed to go?

Re: Exports to Japan

On the other hand there is a report on exports prior to 31.3.1944 (probably for March 1944, as the previous report is dated 29.2.1944) saying that two Hs 129 had been exported to Japan.

Re: Exports to Japan

Some time ago (april 2008) I asked if anybody has any informations on DFS 230 delivered to Japan. According to some letters, a Japanese company ordered three units in late 1942 to be delivered in early 1943. Any evidence that these aircraft were delivered to Japan ?

Best regards, Peter Ocker
