The Henschel Hs 124 was a German prototype twin-engined heavy fighter-bomber. After two were manufactured, work on the airplane was cancelled.

The Hs 124 V1 had two liquid-cooled 12-cylinder Junkers Jumo 210A engines of 449 kW each (610 hp). It was fitted with a rotating turret with two 7.9 mm MG 15 machine guns in the nose.

The Hs 124 V2 had two BMW 132DC 9-cylinder radial engines of 640 kW each (870 hp). It was fitted with two 7.9mm MG 15 machine guns and carried up to 600 kg of bombs.
