Finish Air Force Heinkel He 115's
The Heinkel He 115 A and C were German twin-engine three-seat maritime patrol aircraft. They could accommodate the crew and 12 to 14 long-range patrol troops.
One Heinkel was flown by a defector from Norway to Petsamo (Pechenga) in June 1940; this aircraft was used for carrying long-range patrols until it was written off in June 1943.
Germany lent the 4th Detached Battalion for the remainder of the Continuation War two He 115 C aircraft, one of which continued in the transport role until it was relinquished to the Soviet Union in November 1944. The Heinkels were extremely well suited for their task and had a significant role in transporting long-range patrols. The Air Force had three aircraft in 1940–44.
