think about it some og this plain are flying today like experimental models (for example x-progect), but in those days engeners do not have computer and calculeter. All calculations was on paper. German engeners was exelent scientist and best in the world.

Wow, a nice selection of planes. But I think I've seen some of these on ATS before though.

Yes the Germans had some good designs and smart people to bad they had an idiot for a ruler who thought he could take over the world and he might of if some of those designs had been produced in time but thast another story

These seem to be images taken from , there are many more image on that website if anybody is interested.

I especially like the german "UFO"

You forgot Silver Bird the germans plan for a orbital bomber in WW2 america hasnt even built one yet that they addmit too atleast but I wouldnt be surprized if they have on in the black projects. Im sure theres better sketchs of it but this was the first I found.

A variable wing aircraft like the BV P202 (in photo - Me p 1109 - which one?) was tested by NASA only a few years ago and was said to work perfectly. It is a similar idea to a normal "swing wing" aircraft like the F-14 Tomcat, except the whole wing is one pece and swings instead of each wing swinging back and forward.

I didn't of an Arado German plane producer; I knew only Messerschmitt, Heinkel, Dornier und Junkers;
Any data on Arado?

ShadowXIX, the Sanger spaceplane was designed in the 20s before they even knew anything about supersonic effects (eg, the joys of compressibility). The aerodynamics just wouldn't work - NASA learned much from the X-15 (a descendant of rocket technology pilfered from the Nazis). In fact, the original concept for the X-15 was sketched on a napkin during a lunch break at a conference. But this was some time after they had begun to learn about supersonic effects.

The Sanger was designed to be able to complete one (1) circuit of the earth, ie a suborbital flight around half the world (dropping a dirty bomb on New York or other major US city) and then skipping its way to a re-entry back over Europe, where the plane would be ditched and the pilot would eject for recovery. In other words, the thing was a throwaway space bomber. What we would use these days is an ICBM. No point in putting a human in it and giving it wings if you can't at least recover it!

Von Braun, however, was keenly interested in making a manned, winged version of the V-2 which would have a big first stage to lob it into suborbit. That design shares many commonalities with the X-15, aside from the first stage, which was replaced by a B-52. In fact, the spaceplane concept was supposed to take American pilots (eventually) into space, which it did - some of the X-15 flights topped 100km. It was only the Russians putting an angry cat down everybody's pants with their huge rocket that force NASA to hastily respond with a Mercury-Redstone launch. As a result, we have a legacy of ridiculous cost and excess for space programs with governments' insistence on using 1960s technology to launch satellites, manned missions etc.

But do check out the HyperSoar / FALCON thread.

Arado has the distinction of producing the worlds first jet powered bomber, the Arado Ar234 which actually flew in combat during WW2.
