The Fieseler Fi 98 was a dive fighter aircraft made by Fieseler Flugzeugbau Kassel.


The machine emerged from the design competition in the summer of 1934, in which, at the suggestion of Ernst Udet, the Technical Office requested a light, single-seat dive fighter aircraft. The Blohm & Voss Ha 137 and the Henschel Hs 123 were also involved in the competition, of which the Henschel design won in the end. The tender for a heavy two-seater dive combat aircraft, for which Arado developed the Ar 81 , Heinkel the He 118 and Junkers the Ju 87 , has nothing to do with this. However, both processes are often mixed up in the literature. For Fieseler, the aircraft was the Luftwaffe's first development order . The aircraft was to be a stable double-decker in all-metal construction designed with standard suspension. The drive was a BMW-Bramo 322 H-2 radial engine with 650 hp. The flight performance, however, was far behind the requirements, so that apart from the V-type no production took place.
