History

The Heinkel He 49a single seat biplane made its first flight in November 1932 it was seemingly a civilian advanced trainer. However, its BMW VI engine gave it a top speed of almost 325 km/h, which was in keeping with its true role as the forerunner of the first fighter to serve with the Luftwaffe upon its official formation in April 1935. Two more prototypes were built, the He 49b flown in February 1933 with a fuselage lengthened by 0.40 m, and the He 49e with faired landing gear.
