1942 plans were made to enable the 109 to carry a large 500kg bomb. The
Fieseler company designed the modifications. This consisted of the
addition of a auxiliary undercarriage leg fitted under the center of the
fuselage. This leg was jettisoned after take-off and was fitted with a
parachute for retrieval. After the bomb was dropped the FiSk-199 could
land in a normal way. The modifications were carried out by Skoda in
Prague, hence the assignment of the Fi-Sk designation.
It is thought that two aircraft were converted and tested.
