DFS Habicht and Stummel-Habicht gliders


The DFS Habicht (German: "Hawk") was designed in 1936 by Hans Jacobs as an unlimited aerobatic sailplane, with support provided by the Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Segelflug.

Modified versions of the Habicht, dubbed the Stummel-Habicht ("Stumpy Hawk") were used to train pilots to land the Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet rocket-powered fighter.

The original Habicht had 13.6-metre (44 ft 7 in) span gull wings. Stummel-Habichts had straight wings of 8-metre (26 ft 3 in) and 6-metre (19 ft 8 in) span.

Habicht reproductions can be found in the European airshow circuit.

I have a couple of PDF files for Stummel-Habicht, that have Hans-Jürgen Fischer's logo and © Aeromax. I'm not sure if those can be posted???

Those are among the files that I've found somewhere - but don't remember where...
I believe the fuselage from your long wing drawing is the same as what was used for the short wing versions.
