a Ju 288 (or 388, I don't remember which) with a twin tail. Possibly a trials idea to see if the twin tail would be better than the original single tail?

The undercarriage is all wrong. (twin wheels)

I'm suspecting an Fw 191 for the Bomber B programme. Because...

The 191 also had twin fins and a VERY Ju288/388 like nose. (possibly design borrowed from Junkers.)
The teardrop shaped blister in the side of the nose was also on the Fw191.
The U/C is also like the 191, with twin wheels, like the He219.


Brett (by no means certain as I have no reference photo of a 191 to hand.)

Many of the Finnland/Northern-based machines had similar schemes from 42 thru to 44.
In those areas, snow lingered a much longer after the coming of spring, and arrived earlier in autumn. Plus wioth the number of lakes and rivers, many retained some form of dapple almost year round. (I'm told.)

It appears to be a later A-1, with the domed rear upper, and a 'Zwilling' MG81Z monunted in the lower rear. The A-2 had the armoured in the Rear upper, usually also mounting a zwilling MG81Z, but sometimes with a single instead.

Its a bit small to be a Me 261, plus its a taildragger. (AFAIK the 261 had tricycle U/C.)
Could it be an early Dornier 17 viz E/F? It looks like the start of a windscreen at the top right of pic...

But why the change in the U/C? Seems a bit.... odd.
