The CASA 2.111B was a medium bomber derived from the Heinkel He 111 and produced in Spain under license from Construcciones Aeronáuticas SA (CASA). The 2.111 models differed in details from the He 111H design while using the same exact fuselage in appearance, but had heavier armament and Rolls-Royce Merlin engines.

In Spain, during the civil war the national side received several H-111B from Germany, later they began to receive improved models such as the He-111D and H-111E-1 after the war. But the requirement for a more current model led to the signing of a contract between CASA and Heinkel in 1940 to produce under license 200 units of the He 111H-16 model in Seville. The first Spanish C-2111 "Pedro" left CASA's assembly line in 1945. Deliveries continued at a very slow pace due to the lack of supply of Jumo engines by the sinking of the german industry in the aftermath of the war. After World War II the shortage of Jumo engines led CASA to buy Rolls-Royce Merlin 500-29. This created the CASA-2111B variant.


Operational history:

The first aircraft built in Spain flew on May 23, 1945. After the war CASA installed Rolls-Royce Merlin 500 engines. The CASA 2.111 was used in combat in close air support role during the Ifni War in 1957-1958. Several of the aircraft retired in the 1960s were used in films, such as The Battle of Britain and Patton, due to their similarity to the Heinkel He 111.

If you have any more data of this aircraft it would help to make this post much better, all help is welcome.

I'm not a native English speaker, if I made any mistake I'm sorry.
