      Storch by quite a margin here, IMO.

        I see I'm in the minority, but the Henschel could do more things. Thus, more "multi-role".

            Nothing wrong with being in the minority occasionally. Happens to me sometimes so it must be OK!

            The number of roles is only one criterion. There are other criteria and of course the aim is to try to balance those criteria in accordance with one's own sense of what was most important.

            For example, when comparing a single Hs 126 with a single Fi 152, a member might regard the Henschel as - say for example - 15% more effective as a multi-role platform; whereas another member might argue that while this may be true on a plane-to-plane basis, there were 3.5 times as many Storches produced which gives that type a greater overall significance/influence factor.

            I would not attempt to say that one rationale is superior/inferior or more valid/less valid than the other. I leave it up to all members to decide for themselves how to balance and evaluate the criteria.

              25+ countries for the Storch?
              Must have been a lot of post-war garage sales.

                Probably includes the Allied countries using captured aircraft. Also France continued to manufacture and sell it for many years post 1945 albeit re-engined and using a different name
