Project 0212 Flying Fortress
The concept of the 88’ Flying Fortress is designed along the lines of the American Streamline Era of the 1930’s and early 1940’s, the time that aluminium alloys became strong enough to be used for aviation purposes when for the first time, engineers could combine strength and speed in lightweight constructions.
It stood for state of the art engineering. As a result, every moving object had to be streamlined to be associated with progress and speed. The concept of the 88’ Flying Fortress has been derived from the American WWII bomber plane, nicknamed the Flying Fortress.
