How about Barnes Wallis' "Victory Bomber"?
I thought the Victory Bomber was supposed to be an eight engined beast?
The XFY-1 “Pogo”
Go-229 (aka Ho-229)
Mistel bombers (RC flying bombs based off the Ju-88 fuselage, flown remotely by Fw-190 pilots)
no, it was Ho IX, the 229 was asigned to gothaer waggonfabrik, hence the Go 229, but for the original it was Ho, for Horten
Douglass XB-42/43 Mixmaster/Jetmaster and the Northrup XP-79.
for me the ta 183, dornier p-247, fw flitzer and ju ef 128
