German secrets of World War Two ( 4 ) Horten Ho 229

Horten Ho 229
Designated the Horten Ho-IX, it was a revolutionary late-World War II prototype flying wing fighter/bomber, designed by Reimar and Walter Horten and built by Gothaer Waggonfabrik.

A personal favourite of German Luftwaffe chief Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, it came too late, fortunately for the allies, and development ended at the loss of WW2
