Luftwaffe Late War Designs


  • Customizer

    Hey All,

    Found an interesting website and thought I’d post it here. It’s a collection of late-war German aircraft prototypes. Some of these are really crazy, others are eerily similar to Cold War or even modern designs.

    http://www.luft46.com/

    Some highlights:

    This one looks a lot like a MIG

    This one is almost like a modern jetliner

    This one reminds me of a Harrier

    Ummm…Osprey anyone?



  • Wow, that looks to be the famed MiG 15.

    Guys,

    @ABWorsham:

    Wow, that looks to be the famed MiG 15.

    ––I think what you meant to say is:
    "that Mig-15 looks like the German FW". After all, the Russians (as well as the Americans) did capture and utilize many of the German designs. The large Russian 4-engine bomber was a “copy/modification” of an American design. And let’s not forget about the A bomb either.
    ––Aint history cool!

    ––As they say down here in the South,…“Backatcha!”

    "Happy New Year". I always enjoy your WW2 history threads. Congrats on getting people to speak up & get envolved.

    I wish somebody would finish the Horton X Jet to see if it could fly using the original designs

    We once talked about organizing an A&A match. You still want to wage war.

    ABWorsham,

    ––I’m always “up” for some Fun, although I haven’t gotten envolved in the computer version of A&A here on A&A.Org. I much prefer the face-to-face games over the computer versions, although I’m certain I would learn a lot and become a better player.
    ----To tell you the truth, I’ve been spending most of my time lately preparing for a large donation to my soon to be incorporated Railroad & Military History Museum. Just think of two commas and six zeros. Some of my permanent plans include a “military simulations” room (A&A games) so I can host games with friends like you and eventually sponser a A&A gaming convention one day. I’m very much looking forward to the day,….hopefuly very soon. We were expecting the donation to happen about a month after Christmas, but haven’t received the enabling message yet. Keep you fingers crossed for me/us.

    You mean this? LOL

    From this original “sketch”

    There’s a documentary where they make one of those and test it’s stealth capabilities.

    I’ll try to dig it up…
