Piotr,

Device to the left looks like U10/S which was used to power FuG216/Fug217, so same for FuG218 I assume. Device to the right I cannot say, does not look like a umformer.
As you say, only examination of SA plane can tell.

Folks,

By the way, if you look closely at some of the pictures of the back installation, there seems to be a panel lying at the bottom with a fixing stud protruding from it. Looks like it was removed/broken from the other side of the fuselage.
Could be the location of some of the missing umformers.

Cheers

You can see the panel in the first picture of this thread.

Hello,

The drawing is for the proposed production model of the ME262 B-2 night fighter. You can se the antenna for the FuG 218 AND the FuG 350Zc at the nose of the plane, the FuG 350 Zc antenna covered by a Plexiglas covering.

There would be 3 power generators mounted in the nose, a U17, a U120 and a U10/S, which is also the case on the SA aircraft. (on photo's of the gun bay, you can see the wiring leading out to the forward compartment).

You can see that the forward section of the proposed plane has a standard ME262 nose section, only slightly modified nose cone to accommodate the FuG 350 Zc antenna.

Best regards

Hi,

The panel you are looking at could be the foundation that the British mounted the radio on for test flights. The British did not use the German radios, but installed there own. That also included a different intercom, and you can se the additional panel that was mounted in the radar operators position on the right cockpit side with the inscription "Intercom".

You can see the same sort of installation in other captured ME262s

Regards
