Comment:
The ASW-12 is the production development of the trend setting Akaflieg D-36. At one time the ASW- 12 held all three world distance records. A fiberglass design featuring camber-changing flaps, the οΎ–12 had no dive brakes; early examples lacked the later added (and at first non- jettisonable) tail chute for glidepath control, a feature which tended to make it challenging on approach and landing. One example belongs to the National Soaring Museum. ATC.
