Ta-152H-6 Prototype Skin
« on: January 22, 2021, 08:14:46 AM »

Germany late August 1945.

With the war still on the divisive fronts locked and most of Eastern Europe under German control thanks to Donitz's and Kesselring's assault on Berlin to oppose the Russians as well as the 3 armies near Prague which successfully destroyed the Soviet front line on April 27th 1945. Meanwhile more advanced fighters were starting to be hurriedly produced... Kurt Tank who developed the Fw-190/Ta-152 series was called upon by General Field Marshal Von Greim who replaced Goering as Commander in Chief of the Luftwaffe and that resulted in Hermann Goering going into hiding across the Austrian border.

Meanwhile Focke Wulf started to develop an evolution of the successful Ta-152H and C models which was now serving as the Luftwaffe's piston engined backbone alongside the Bf-109L and K-14 models. This fighter was the Ta-152H-6 which was an evolution of the Ta-152H-4 with the Jumo 222 engine which had overheating problems and excessive weight proving the engine and the alterations of the Ta-152 was taking a downfall. However Kurt Tank knowing the H-4 was a failure in July 1945 had evolved the Jumo 213 and made it into the Jumo 215C, a huge engine which developed 2,700hp and was equipped with quad stage superchargers as well as an enhanced MW50 system which increased the horse power to 3,100hp. This gave the new Ta-152 a top speed of 490mph at medium altitudes whereas at 52,000ft she could reach a top speed of 550mph which far exceeded the P-51H, Spitfire F.21, Yak-9UT and the P-47N as well as putting it very close to Me-262A-1 which was the frontline jet of the Luftwaffe at the time.

Her armament was 4 MG-151 cannons and like the Ta-152H-1 she carried a single MK-108 Motorkanone in the engine nacelle outclassing the firepower of jet fighters the Germans possessed currently as well as Allied fighters, the Ta-152H-6 proved to be the ultimate in the design and was met with high praise from the German Chancellery under Karl Donitz who was promoted to leader of the Third Reich after Hitler committed suicide on April 30th 1945.

Donitz immediately requested a prototype be built and it's capabilities evaluated by a test pilot. Adolf Galland then in charge of JV44 stated he'd never seen any fighter like it, especially the propeller arrangement which consisted of a contra-rotating airscrew. However it would be Hanna Reitsch who'd be the first to fly it. Reitsch in her test flight concluded that the Ta-152H-6 be put into production immediately, reasons being it was the first aircraft she tested to give her an adrenaline rush due to her high speeds even at low altitudes, in which she attained 420mph and that was at low height. She also commented that the contra-rotating propeller enhanced the torque but needed little trim on takeoff, however she was insistent about the landing speed, which was very high at around 290mph even with landing flaps engaged, however the V1 prototype was shown in later tests that she could land at 250/260mph without stalling.

Overall one prototype was completed and assigned to JG.11 which at the time was converting to the Horten 229 flying wing fighters. But the commander of the unit stated he needed a fighter that was capable of protecting the jets on landing as well as takeoff, so the Focke Wulf's factory deep under the Harz Mountains started work producing the H-6...

Thankyou gents for your kind comments, I hope you guys enjoy flying her.

To answer your question Matz, the story behind the Ta-152H-4/H-6/Jumo 222 mods goes waaaay back to the old days when a site called ''All Aircraft Arcade'' existed. We're talking nearly over a decade ago and that was around the time this mod was originally released. I remember downloading it years ago when it WAS a seperate addon. However for credibility's sake Vampire who works on BAT decided to add it when most of us thought the ''What if'' Ta-152's had long gone which was amazing to finally have it in our simulator once again, so it was a fantastic surprise for myself and everyone else.

I think the mod is primarily made for BAT only as I've never seen it separate since the late 2000's early 2010's. However with it's introduction in BAT it was given a complete re-vamp and up to date capabilities. So sadly I don't think we'll ever see it as a seperate mod again. Maybe if you message SAS~vampirepilot he should be able to answer in some more detail as he was the one that added her into BAT.

All the best,
BlackAce

If anyone is interested, it turns out she STILL exists as a seperate mod install.

Back to topic, well placed skin of a late war scenario.
In a bombed up greyish Germany, that goes on with war, frog greens would have been
more vital targe tugs than camouflage. I saw colour Movie reels of a shot up Air Base of
Halle Nietleben, such greys would perfectly blend into the vicinity.
Whatever was the cause for choice, is accepted, I like it...

Cheers

Well Tobi,

The reason I went for RLM browns and greens is because they stand out more and blend in better with the terrain, as many of the REAL Ta-152H-1's had during their short life in 1945 so my idea was to continue because remember this is based AFTER Germany surrendered in May 1945. With ''What if'' scenarios and aircraft it's obvious mate that the Germans would have continued using their standard RLM colours and patterns right up until late 1945 to early 1946 with the new jets they had built. The Ta-152H-6 had a VERY limited production run and were used primarily as a stop gap as they were starting to mass produce the later models of Me-262, Ho-229 and He-162 fighters respectively.

The Ta-152H-6 as mentioned in the story above was primarily a jet base defender, but also did high altitude recon and interception duties until their retirement in 1946.

That's the story I'm going by and thankyou for appreciating it.

Hi BlackAce,

Just checked out the link and got logged on - I now have even more goodies to add to my setup ;D And a dozen PC's to upgrade manually  o_O

As much as I love BAT - I also run a small network for a cadet group and BAT is just tooo big to run on it - hence wanting the "Uber-152" for my "mini-TFM/CUP/BAT" 

Thanks for the help and the amazing skins with the background "history".

Cheers
