I am looking for info regarding the Messerschmitt Me.210 that was sent to Japan for tests. The info I have from various books and websites all agree that it was a Me.210A-2 model; however, one book says that the plane was "updated to Me.410 standard, but kept the original engines". I'm wondering what exactly was meant by that. Was it all equipment? Or was the wing different as well? TIA and
Work Number 2102350 GE+KV. It seems this was the only 210 designated an A-2, and appears to have been so when sent to Japan.
In October 1942 it was sent to Rechlin to be fitted with the DS 605 for trials. Normal Me 210A was fitted with a DB 601.
It was retained at E-Stelle Rechlin until March '43 then sent to Japan. Although proof positive seems to be lacking that this was the aircraft. based only on photos.,
