Nazi Wonder Weapons you might not know

Ever wondered what German scientists did work on while the Americans
worked on thier boring bombs? Here are some examples of
achievements by the nation that gave birth to modern rocketry. And did
some other things as well.
This is rocket was used to take out heavy bombers from a safe
distance. They came too late in the war to make a major difference, the
they played a great role in the "Black Thursday" raid on the ball bearing
plant in Schweinhund, where the RAF lost 77 ofh their 291 "Flying
Fortress" bombers with another 122 damaged.
The higly effective, it just came too late in the war.
Messerschmitt Me 262 "Schwalbe" (Swallow)
This sleak ************ is the worlds first operational let powered fighter aircraft.
Vastly superior to anything the allies could field, this baby forced the allies to focus on
destroying it on the ground rather then facing it in the air. Coming late in the war, its
small numbers had almost no impact on the war, claiming only 542 kills.
It was could be fitted with 4 x cannons, 24 x rockets or 2 It
sock: bombs and achieved scum/ h )
Th is were things started to go crazy in the German workshops:
This was supposed to counter the allied bomber threat to the rel in its
last days. This "manned rocket" was was focused on fast starts in places
without gelds, and is the first vertical takeoff capable manned rocket
powered aircraft Armed w h 24 It rockets, this
interceptor was sti in testing and never saw combat when before the
war ended.
About the picture: The feeble swastikas on the wings were painted on by
allies post war and are not positioned according to German military
Captain america anyone? Yes, these did actually exist. Well, to an extend. S I in
testing when the war ended, this is another vertical takeoff interceptor
designed to defend the Reich' s cities. The ramie's on the end of the three rotor
blades would make them spin and work like a giant propeller. It would have been
armed with 2 x and 2 It cannons and achieve a calculated speed of

Do you mean the Lockheed XFV? That came 6 years later.

Quite sad when you think all the tightest, coolest 			****		 is usually made with the sole purpose of more efficiently blowing up the other side's latest coolest 			****		.   
In peacetime everyone's just ticking along using facebook and posting selfies. Start a war, and all the scientists get 5x the budget and whatever resources they need.

There was also research on a German stealth fighter in WW2. From the relic that was discovered when US troops occupied a german hanger they found this partially dismantled machine. It's body was made almost entirely of layered wood with a hand formed plexi-glass and completely smooth to absorb and deflect a large amount of radar frequencies. it was powered by twin jet engine that were built inconspicuously into the frame .The only reason it wasn't completed is because of burn out issues in the engine and time constraints. There was a television special on this that showed it being made using the same practices and techniques that were used previously to create the original machine.

Scary thing is...... when it was tested on a radar field it barely appeared..... even scarier..... they ran a test simulation after doing the radar test and combined it with luftwaffen flying techniques at flying just above to ocean to better evade radar, it was able to break through the british radar fleet with only 6 minutes of detection before arrival, the british defenses would have been completely been caught off guard and the radar system annihilated due to the fighters being equipped with standard fighter plane machine guns.

Want to know the worse of that research.... there was a design plan found for one that could carry a nuclear bomb all the way to the united states. a larger version powered by 6 jet engines as to the original 2. The amount of warning time a place like New York City would have before the alarm would go off......... just a short 8 minutes before the bomb drop.

To think the germans at that time had almost finished researching and mass producing what would have been super-advanced for their time stealth fighters that could wiped out the allied forces and killed million before they even know it was coming.... Hitler could have quite easily won the war...

For proof :

I think the take-home message here is that the Germans were pretty much technological geniuses but tactical/strategic morons (or at least Hitler was). I heard the first assault rifles had to be developed under a different name cause Hitler wasn't "down" with research on rifles.

I was under the impression Hitler wanted the ME-262 used as a bomber, reducing any impact it might have made even more.

Unsure of truth in that though.

ME-262 was quite easily shot down by any compitent pilot.

While its speed was something to be reckoned with, it was fairly simple to out maneuver simply due to the fact that the German pilots were not used to high speed fighting.

Most of the times, really, the ME-262 was matched up 4 against squadrons of up to 24 mustangs, which severely outnumbered them. Although a good 100 MPH faster then the mustang, its fuel limitations ON TOP of the danger the fuel itself endangered the pilot made it a very terrible aircraft and was quickly and swiftly replaced in the latest stages of the war by the 109 K4.
