Henschel Hs 130 was a bombed and remote sensing aircraft designed and built during WWII at Henschel Flugzeug-Werke AG for large heights.

The aircraft was developed in 1939, after the work on Henschel Hs 128 had been discontinued, since the Reichsluftfahrtministerium demanded a bomber or an enlightener for great heights. The aircraft was a cantilever low-deck full-body with retractable standard chassis. Analogous to Hs 128, the Hs 130 also had a pressure booth as well as an exhaust gas turbocharger. Only a few samples were made in different designs.
