In the beginning of the 1930s an idea emerged that a high-speed bomber could outstrip contemporary fighters. One aircraft borne of this concept was the twin-engine bomber Do 17, designed by Dornier in Germany. Starting in the beginning of 1939 it was produced in modification Do 17Z, which featured a new ‘Waffenkopf’ type nose and an air-cooled Bramo 323 Fafnir engine. In 1940 nine Do 17Z-10 Kauz II night fighters were produced. Spanner-Anlage infrared night vision devices were installed along with more powerful armament. They served in the night fighter unit II/NJG 1 up to the beginning of 1944.In the beginning of the 1930s an idea emerged that a high-speed bomber could outstrip contemporary fighters. One aircraft borne of this concept was the twin-engine bomber Do 17, designed by Dornier in Germany. Since the beginning of 1940 a small series of Do 215B planes with liquid-cooled DB 601A engines was produced, and in 1941 the B-5 variant night fighter modification followed. FuG 202 Lichtenstein radars were installed in these powerfully armed planes. They served in the night fighter unit II/NJG 1 up to the beginning of 1944.
