COMMENT: The Focke-Wulf Ta 211, designed by Prof. K. Tank and his team and what was named after the Jumo 211R engine to be used, was the first design what later became  the Focke-Wulf Ta 154. The idea was to design a plane that was comparable or even better than the de Havilland “Mosquito”. In the form shown here, equipped with FuG 217 Neptune radar, it never flew (Ref.: 19).
