DORNIER 19

Dornier DO 19
During 1934 Germany was already thinking in terms of a ‘Grossbomber’ capable of carrying an effective bomb load to the North of Scotland or to the Urals from German bases. Fully supported by General Wever, who was to become the Luftwaffe’s first Chief of Staff. Designed to carry 16 220lb bombs or 32 110lb bombs with a crew of nine. Gen. Wever lost his life on June 3rd 1936 & General Kesselring was appointed. He concluded that the twin engined Heinkel 177 would suffice for any envisaged war in Europe. On the 29th. April 1937 all further development of the Ural bomber was terminated.
