„He 280” változatai közötti eltérés

43 bájt hozzáadva ,  9 évvel ezelőtt
Sok kifogás, melyet a He 280 ellen felhoztak, ma már értelmetlennek tűnik. Úgy ítélték, hogy az orrkerekes futómű nem alkalmas a füves vagy sáros repülőtereken, ami viszont általános volt különösen az Oroszországban és Észak-Afrikában. A Me 262 vadászgépet eredetileg hagyományos farkerekes futóművel tervezték, de ez a megoldás megnehezítette a sugárhajtású gépek felszállását. A berepülőpilótáknak rá kellett lépniük nekifutás közben a fékre, hogy felemeljék a gép farkát. Az ötödik prototípuson először próbáltak ki még merev orrkerekes futóművet, melyet a hatodikon behúzhatóra cseréltek, és ez maradt a végleges megoldás is.
 
A He 280 egyetlen előnye keltette fel a politikai vezetés érdeklődését, nevezetesen az, hogy a hajtómű kerozinnal is üzemelt, mely sokkal olcsóbb finomítási eljárást igényelt mint a dugattyús motoros repülőgépekhez szükséges nagy oktán-számú benzin.

One benefit of the He 280 which impressed the political leadership was the fact that the jet engines could burn [[kerosene]], which requires much less expense and refining than the high-octane fuel used by piston-engine aircraft. The He 280 might have been more easily "sold" if Heinkel stressed the possibility of using it as an attack aircraft for anti-shipping. While the R4M rockets were not available until 1944, the Germans did develop the ''[[Nebelwerfer]]'' in 1941, which was a 150&nbsp;mm (5.9&nbsp;in) [[artillery]] rocket launcher. These tubes could have been mounted underneath the wings of a jet. German pilots complained that bombs dropped by the Me 262 had little chance of hitting their targets. A forward-firing recoilless weapon would have been much more effective.

Had the German government given support to production, the He 280s could conceivably have gone into production earlier in the war and reached the ''[[Luftwaffe]]'' earlier than was ultimately the case with the Me 262. But it was not to be, as Udet, on that April day in 1941, could not see a need for a plane without propellers, no matter what its future might be.{{fact|date=September 2007}}
