Henschel HS 127.

In the spring of 1936 three prototypes were ordered of this twin engine three seat bomber. The HS 127 was a low wing cantilever monoplane powered by two Daimler Benz DB 600 engines. There was a marked similarity of concept between the HS 127 & the Junkers 88, with the 88 being the preferred aircraft. Only two of the 127 prototypes were built, the contract then being cancelled.
