Luftwaffe Secret Projects: Ground Attack and Special Purpose Aircraft

Overview

The two previous volumes in this hugely popular series have covered Fighters 1939-1945 and Strategic Bombers 1935-1945.

Overview

The two previous volumes in this hugely popular series have covered Fighters 1939-1945 and Strategic Bombers 1935-1945. This new addition takes a close look at a varied range of aircraft types, principally described as ground attack and special purpose types, but which includes Kampfzerstorer (multi-purpose combat aircraft), multi-purpose and fast bombers, explosive-carrying aircraft intended to attack other aircraft, air-to-air ramming vehicles, bomb-carrying gliders and towed fighters, and airborne weapons and special devices (rockets, cannon, flamethrowers etc). With access to much previously unpublished information the authors bring to life futuristic shapes that might have terrorised the Allies had the war gone beyond 1945. Approximately 150 full colour illustrations in contemporary unit markings, plus dozens of three-view style plans and numerous black and white photographs show vividly what might have been achieved. Careful comparison with later Allied and Soviet aircraft show the legacy handed on, right up to today's stealth aircraft. As before, the technical descriptions and histories of about 140 aircraft types are brought to life by many specially created full-colour artworks, showing the projects, often in unit markings, as they might have appeared if they had come to fruition and/or if the war had continued beyond 1945.
