About the Heinkel He219:
Known as the Uhu (Eagle-Owl), the Heinkel He219 was an advanced German night-fighter that flew in the latter half of WWII. Its first promising use in combat occurred in June 1943, when a V-series plane shot down five Allied bombers. Production models, equipped with radar, began arriving in the Luftwaffe in October 1943. The capable He219 had an enviable reputation as a “Mosquito”-killer, but production was never sufficient to have a significant impact on the air war. The later He219B model was fitted with 2500hp Jumo 222A/B engines, giving the Uhu a maximum speed of 700km/h. It also featured a lengthened wingspan for better high-altitude performance.
