MÁVAG Héja II

The Héja II was a version of the Reggiane Re.2000 single engined figure produced under license in Hungary by the Hungarian State Iron and Steel Works (MÁVAG). Hungary had purchased seventy Re.2000s in 1939, of which 68 were eventually delivered, with the final aircraft not being delivered until May 1943, three years later than originally promised! These aircraft were known as the Héja (Hawk) in Hungarian service.

At the same time the Hungarians had negotiated for a license to build the aircraft themselves. The resulting aircraft was powered by the WMK-14B engine, based on the Gnome & Rhône K-14 Mistral Major, and providing 1085hp. The resulting aircraft had a top speed of 323 mph. Other changes including the replacement of the two Italian 12.7mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns of the Re.2000 with similar 12.7mm Gebauer guns designed and produced in Hungary, and an improved fuel system, with a self sealing 26 gallon fuel tank in the fuselage and 22 smaller tanks, with a capacity of 5.3 to 6.6 gallons in the wings.

Production of the Héja II ran from July 1942 until October 1944, although an allied air raid in July 1944 had destroyed the WM factory preventing between 25 and 30 aircraft from being completed. In all 203 Héja IIs were completed during that period.

While the imported Héjas had been used on the Eastern Front, the Héja II was retained in Hungary, for use as an advanced fighter trainer. The increased tempo of the allied bombing offensive against Hungary in 1944 forced the Héja II into service as a day fighter, operating against the US 15th Air Force and its escort fighters. This resulted in a series of encounters between the Héja II and P-38s and P-47s. Unsurprisingly the obsolescent Hungarian aircraft did not fare well against the more modern allied aircraft.


Design and development [ edit | edit source ]

In December 1939 seventy Reggiane Re.2000 fighters, purchased from Italy, were delivered to the Magyar Királyi Állami Vas-, Acél- és Gépgyárak, ("Royal Hungarian State Iron, Steel and Machine Works"), where they were modified into MÁVAG Héja I ("Goshawk I") fighters. The original Piaggio P.XI engines were replaced by the Hungarian-built Manfred Weiss WM K-14 driving Hamilton Standard three-bladed, constant-speed propellers. The WM K-14 was a licensed copy of the French Gnome-Rhône 14K engine that necessitated a 1-foot 3-inch lengthening of the fighters’ forward fuselage, to restore the center of gravity to a safe position. The Piaggio engine was itself also a copy of the Gnome-Rhône 14K, but less reliable than the original.

A decision was soon made to produce more Héja fighters under license in Hungary as the MÁVAG Héja II (Goshawk II). The new Héja II was entirely Hungarian with locally produced airframes, engines and armament. The new fighter differed from the Reggiane fighter in a number of ways. Armament was changed to 2 × 0.50 inch (12.7 mm) Gebauer fixed forward-firing guns in the upper nose with 300 rounds each. Length was 27 ft 6.25 inch (8.39 m), and maximum level speed was 301 mph (485 km/h) at 13,780 ft (4,200 m). Endurance was 2 hours and 30 minutes. The first MÁVAG Héja II took to the air on 30 October 1942, and in total MÁVAG built a further 203 Héjas for the Royal Hungarian Air Force. The last aircraft was completed on 1 August 1944 when production ceased.

Politics [ edit ]

This is a community maintained wiki. If you spot a mistake then you are welcome to fix it.

Ideology [ edit ]

Hungary starts in 1936 as a non-aligned country with an election in March of 1939. The ruling party in 1936 is the F48P and its leader is Miklós Horthy. Hungary in the 1939 game start is a fascist country.

National spirits [ edit ]

Without the Death or Dishonor DLC enabled, Hungary starts with no national spirits. With the Death or Dishonor DLC enabled, Hungary starts off with the Treaty of Trianon, which disarms Hungary. This can be removed by either negotiating with the Little Entente, proposing the Bled Agreement, or by renouncing it if you choose the fascist route of the tree.

1939 decemberében a magyar kormány 70 darab Reggiane Re.2000 vadászgépet vásárolt Olaszországból. A gépeket a MÁVAG-nak szállították le, ahol azokat átalakították, új jelölése Héja I lett. Az eredeti Piaggio P.XI motorokat magyar gyártmányú Weiss Manfréd Gnome–Rhône 14K csillagmotorra cserélték le, mely Hamilton Standard háromágú állítható légcsavart hajtott. A WM K-14 motort a francia Gnome–Rhône 14K licence alapján gyártották. Mivel ez a motor könnyebb volt az eredetinél, a törzset 400 mm-el meg kellett hosszabbítani, hogy a gép súlypontja a tervezett helyre kerüljön vissza. Mellesleg a Piaggio motort szintén a Gnome-Rhône 14K licence alapján gyártották, de megbízhatósága elmaradt az eredeti mögött.

Hamarosan döntés történt további Héja vadászgép legyártására. Ezek MÁVAG Héja II jelölést kaptak. Az új Héja II teljesen magyar gyártmány volt, itthon gyártott sárkánnyal, motorral és fegyverzettel. Ez a változat több ponton is különbözött az eredeti konstrukciótól. A fegyverzetet lecserélték 2 darab a gép orrába felül beépített motorhajtású 12,7 mm-es Gebauer géppuskára egyenként 300 lőszerrel. A gép hossza 8,40 m lett, legnagyobb vízszintes sebessége 4200 m-en 485 km/h volt. A repülési idő 2 óra 30 perc volt. Az első MÁVAG Héja II 1942. október 30-án szállt fel, és a gyár összesen 203 Héját gyártott le a Magyar Királyi Honvéd Légiflotta számára. Az utolsó gépet 1944. augusztus 1-jén szállították le, ezután a gyártást leállították.


How the Fakir got the name ‘Sai’

When the marriage - party came to Shirdi, it alighted at the foot of a Banyan tree in Bhagata Mhalsapati’s field near Khandoba’s temple. The carts were loosened in the open courtyard of Khandoba’s temple and the members of the party descended one by one, and the Fakir also got down. Bhagat Mhalsapati saw the young Fakir getting down and spontaneously accosted Him "YA SAI" (Welcome Sai). Others also addressed Him as Sai and thenceforth he became known as Sai Baba.

Upon his return to Shirdi, Baba stayed there for an unbroken period of sixty years, after which He took His Maha-Samadhi in the year 1918.

Initially, Sai Baba stayed on the outskirts of the village of Shirdi, then under a neem tree for four to five years at the spot now called Gurusthan, before shifting to an abandoned mosque which later became known as Dwarkamai.

Slowly his greatness was revealed and his fame spread far and wide, until by the end of his life he was attracting thousands of people to Shirdi. In the last decade of his life, Baba was worshipped with all pomp and ceremony and the mosque was likened to a maharajah’s ‘darbar’, yet Baba never changed His simple and austere lifestyle of the Puritans.

This mod is an attempt to fix this, it's based on the standard 1941 campaign, using unmodified generic data. The only changes were made to scenario data. A future version will use locked generic data for some further in-depth changes.

I do not consider this a final version as some errors may have crept in. So if you find a problem please report it.

Installation: Download the file (attachment at the bottom), unpack the files into the WitE datscen subfolder (it won't overwrite existing files from WitE) and load scenario in WitE.

Plan: Use locked generic data for some in-depth changes to upgrade paths, dates, build limits and to split Ju 88A from Ju 188E and He 111H from He 177 production. Another goal will be to reduce factories ending without upgrade so it will see Panzer III -> Panther or LaGG-3 -> La-5 upgrades.

Colour print film didn't appear until 1935 and Kodak claims that Kodacolour, first produced in 1942, was the first true colour print film. The process of developing the negative was proprietary until the 1950s. It wasn't available in 35mm format until well after the war.

Kodachrome was only made as 35mm slide film from 1935 and remained processable only at a Kodak lab for most of its life. The German Agfacolour process appeared a year or so later and had a much simpler processing requirement but still much more complex and costly than b&w. Whilst b&w can be processed and printed by an amateur in a make-shift dark room, colour really cannot. And prints from colour slides were not readily available. Even now colour negatives are far easier to damage than b&w negatives. Film speeds were also a problem with colour films being relatively slow and so requiring longer exposures. More of a problem was colour balance - colour films needed to be balanced for artificial light and so were much less versatile than b&w. We take colour photography for granted but it really wasn't until the 1970s that it became cheap and easy.

Not to hijack the thread but that’s some great photographic history. I never did understand why most of the Vietnam War was in black and white. That explains it.

Modeling History: Adam Coleman’s 1/72 Legato Hungarian MÁVAG Héja II

Adam Coleman, a friend I know through IPMS, emailed me this very interesting bit of modeling history, along with photos of his great work on this aircraft. I’ll admit I’d never actually heard about this particular one, so it’s interesting to learn something new through the hobby. Thanks for sharing this with us Adam!

Just finished today is my Hungarian MÁVAG Héja II (“Goshawk”) of the Royal Hungarian Air Force ca.1944. This is marked up and intended to depict a mid-production machine V5+42 based at Matyasfeld, near Budapest. The kit is the Legato release in 1/72 scale from 2005 which apparently can make either the Heja I or Heja II.

The Héja I was a Hungarian fighter aircraft copy of the Italian Reggiane Re 2000. Following licensing issues with the Italians, the new Héja II (as shown below) was entirely Hungarian built with locally produced airframes, engines and armament. The new fighter differed from the Heja I in a number of ways. Armament was changed to two fixed forward-firing 12.7 mm (0.50 inch)Gebauer guns with 300 rounds in the fuselage nose. Flight endurance was about 2.5 hours. The first MÁVAG Héja II took to the air on 30 October 1942, and in total, MÁVAG built around 70 Héja II’s, all for the Royal Hungarian Air Force. The last aircraft was completed on 1 August 1944 when production ceased. These were primarily used as fighter trainers.

This model is not for beginners! It is a short run kit with resin and photo etch parts as well as vacuformed canopies. It requires patience and a knack for understanding dubiously unclear instructions. The kit was not easy, but however I also chose it to give my brand new new Grex airbrush a workout. Replicating the paint scheme was especially fun, and I also enjoyed the research side of this project as well. None survive today, so please enjoy the rare and seldom seen little Héja!
