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 104 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.
