Heinkel HE 100.
Initial service evaluation revealed a number of handling deficiencies, so the three HE 100 pre-production aircraft introduced larger tail surfaces & a revised canopy & retractable ventral radiator instead of the original enclosed system. There followed 12 HE 100D-1 production fighters, but political antipathy to Heinkel ended production at this point & the HE 100d’s were retained for local defence of Heinkel’s Rostock & Marienhe factory. In 1939 six prototypes were sold to Russia & three to Japan.
