You are bidding on a BEAUTIFUL and EXTRAORDINARILY RARE example of a 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German Henschel Hs293 Elevator!
The Henschel Hs 293 was a World War II German anti-ship guided missile: a radio-controlled glide bomb with a rocket engine slung underneath it. Deployed by being slung under the He111, it was designed by Herbert A. Wagner.
Fritz X was the most common name for a German guided anti-ship glide bomb used during World War II. Fritz X was a nickname used both by Allied and Luftwaffe personnel. Alternate names include Ruhrstahl SD 1400 X, Kramer X-1, PC 1400X or FX 1400 (the latter is also the origin for the name “Fritz X”). Along with the USAAF’s similar Azon weapon of the same period in World War II, it is one of the precursors of today’s anti-ship missiles and precision-guided weapons.
The TP203 unit was located in the cockpit of the He-111 or Do-17 bomber. It’s main function was to monitor the temperature of the heated FuG203 Radio compartment. In addition, it featured the controls to switch the between either Flares (daytime), or a Flashing Light (night time), that allowed the operator to view the rocket as a distance.
Made of solid, cast aluminum, this Hs293 Elevator is in SUPERB relic condition, and is 100% complete, with no major damage or corrosion! Some slight pitting as you can see in the photos, but it still retains traces of it’s originla paint! An EXCEEDINGLY RARE item, I have indicated it’s location in the last photo Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or museum piece!
