FS2004 Dinfia I.A.35-II "Huanquero"
The IA-35 "El Justicialista del Aire" (renamed "Huanquero" in 1955) was the first design from the Dinfia Organisation of Argentina to enter production and the
head of a family of succesful planes that later included the Ia-35 X "Pandora", the "Guarani I" and the turbopowered Ia-50 "Guarani".
A twin-engined all metal (except for fabric covered ailerons) low-wing cantilever monoplane with a high-mounted tailplane with two fins
and rudders; and a retractable tricycle landing gear. Powered by two IA 19R "El Indio" radial engines of 750 HP each that allowed a maximum cruise speed of 370 kmh and a maximum
range of 1250 KM with a full load of 2300 kg. The major design was done by Paul Klages under the direct supervision of Prof. Kurt Tank, former Focke Wulf designer who
also built the I.Ae 33 "Pulqui II" jet fighter in 1950.
The first series prototype of the Ia-35 made its maiden flight the 21st September of 1953 flown by First Lt. Pilot Connan Doyle, and was followed by a planned
production batch of 100 aircraft but in the end less than half of the aircraft were built when production ceased in the mid-1960s.
Most of the Ia-35 Type II were assigned to the "II Brigada Aerea" of Parana to the "II Grupo de Exploracion y Ataque" where remained in service until 1974, when the lasts "Huanqueros"
were replaced with the newest Ia-58 "Pucara".
