With the German Air Force losing its initiative in World War 2, all manner of aircraft designs were in play by the end of the conflict.

Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe (1939-1945)

With the German Air Force losing its initiative in World War 2, all manner of aircraft designs were in play by the end of the conflict.

OVERVIEW



There are a total of 103 Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe (1939-1945) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order (1-to-Z). Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily the primary operator. This listing attempts to include all manner of special Luftwaffe aircraft projects related to the World War 2 period covering operational, conceptual, and development types. Designs that may have become available in 1946 are part of this showcase - should the war have been prolonged.

Because so many of these Luftwaffe designs were merely conceptual projects or one-off prototypes, illustrations are used to detail their overall look. Where possible, actual historical photographs are featured. Also consider Aircraft of the Emergency Fighter Program of 1944-1945.
