Soviet Steel Train Lost by Marii Chernev

eHangar.com Aviation Art Soviet Steel Train Lost by Marii Chernev

The German Henschel Hs-129 is not often depicted in aviation art. Marii Chernev’s painting, titled “Soviet Steel Train Lost”, is a welcome addition to the very small stable of aviation art featuring this ungainly aircraft.

The German Henschel Hs-129 was a single-seater twin-engine attack aircraft built for combat against tanks and armored trains.

Despite the plane’s shortcomings, the Luftwaffe desperately needed aircraft for the assault of 1940, and in the winter of 1940, Henschel received an order for a series of Hs-129 planes. With the occupation of France, a large number of Gnome-Rhone 14M engines were confiscated, each running at 700 hp. Experiments with installing more powerful (albeit unreliable) engines led to the creation of the Hs-129B, which had superior specs to the original Hs-129 and could return all the way to base if forced to fly with only one engine.
