Greatest Mysteries of WWII ...

Hitler's Stealth Fighter 720P

The Horten H.IX, RLM designation Ho 229 (often called Gotha Go 229 due to the identity of the chosen manufacturer of the aircraft) was a German prototype fighter/bomber designed by Reimar and Walter Horten and built by Gothaer Waggonfabrik late in World War II.

It was the first pure flying wing powered by jet engines.

It was given the personal approval of German Luftwaffen Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, and was the only aircraft to come close to meeting his "3×1000" performance requirements, namely to carry 1,000 kilograms (2,200 lb) of bombs a distance of 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) with a speed of 1,000 kilometres per hour (620 mph). Its ceiling was 15,000 metres (49,000 ft).

German Flight Ingenuity ...

[Dornier Do 335 Pfeil] (Arrow)
Fastest Piston Engine Fighter of WW2

French ace Pierre Clostermann encounter with a Pfeil in April 1945.

He describes leading a pack of four Hawker Tempests from
3 Squadron RAF when he intercepted a lone Do 335
flying at maximum speed at treetop level.

Despite the Tempest's considerable low altitude speed,
the RAF fighters were not able to catch up or even
get into firing position.!!

The Dornier Do 335 Pfeil ("Arrow") was a World War II heavy fighter built by the Dornier company.

The two-seater trainer version was also called Ameisenbär ("anteater").

The Pfeil's performance was much better than other twin-engine designs due to its unique "push-pull"
layout and the much lower drag of the in-line alignment of the two engines.
