-Recommend using the Trim all the way down
Don't pitch too hard; It flies semi-realistically, so it tends to spiral out of control

Designed in 1944, the Focke-Wulf Ta P.252 was intended to succeed the Ta-152 series of aircraft. Sporting two tandem-mounted inverted V16 engines, each with MW50 and GM-1 and driving two contra-rotating propellor hubs. Armed with four 20mm cannons, a single 30mm cannon, and three hardpoints, the P.252 would have been a formidable foe in all forms of combat. Primarily tasked with ground-attack and CAS roles, the P.252 would have had an armored cockpit and self-sealing armored fuel tanks. The design was brought to Hitler in late January 1945, and after a few days greenlit the project. The airframe without the engines was completed by the time of Germany's surrender in 1945, but all that was found were photographs and schematics, while the physical plane was most likely destroyed to prevent it from falling into enemy hands. The aircraft pictured here is a fictional representation of a P.252 in a Wilder Sau unit's colors and would have been a night-fighter.
