WW2 German Luftwaffe Kraftstoffbehälter Drop Tank Relic – Me109 – NICE!


Out of stock



You are bidding on an EXCELLENT late-war example of a WW2 German 300L Kraftstoffbehälter (Drop Tank) Section and Mount , as used on many German Aircraft such as the Me109, Fw190, Me262, Ju88, Me-110, Ju87, and others!  This specific tank came from the wreck of an Me109 G that was lost over Laacher Berg, Germany, however I do not have any loss information.


This tank was a belly or wing-mounted external fuel tank, carried by the aircraft.  It allowed for longer range and was jettisonable by the pilot after the fuel was expended, or after entering combat.


Made of aluminum, this item is in SUPERB relic condition.  There is some obvious damage as it came from a wreck, but it VERY solid otherwise!  I have indicated it;s location in the last photos.  Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display or restoration project!


Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.



——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
