Dornier Do-P

The Dornier Do P was a German four-engine heavy bomber, manufactured by Dornier Flugzeugwerke in the 1930s.

It was built as part of the secret re-armament of Germany, in opposition to the Treaty of Versailles.

Construction of the Do P began in July 1929, and its first flight took place on March 31, 1930.

The aircraft was tested in such places as Lipetsk.

The Do P was a monoplane constructed mainly of metal, but covered in some places by fabric.

The aircraft was powered by four nine-cylinder Siemens Jupiter VI, each with 530 horsepower.

The aircraft had a crew of six.

It was eventually developed into the Dornier Do 11.
