Resin Conversion Set

The slipper tank "Doppelreiter" was a wing mounted container with 270 liters capacity. The Research Institute of Graf Zeppelin (FGZ) received end of 1943 the order to find alternatives to the usual attachment of additional tanks under the wings and fuselage. One of at least three possible solutions which had been realised and tested, was the "Doppelreiter” slip tank.
2-3 man could mount the slipper tank within 5-10 minutes. In air combat, the tank did not have to be dropped. The flight behavior of empty and full tank was almost unchanged and even a better dog-fight capability discovered. The Jagdgruppe 10 was responsible for flight testing nited however the bad flight characteristic with half-full tanks. The tests were completed September 1944, but mass production did not happen.
