I know there has been a thread or two about the alleged NAZI Space Bomber Program but this one I found in the Russian online Pravada website offers a very diderent history-with an incrediable pics/drawings. Here you go:

The Amerika Bomber project was an initiative of the Reichsluftfahrtministerium, the Nazi Germany Air Ministry, to obtain a long-range bomber aircraft for the Luftwaffe that would be capable of striking the continental United States from Germany. Requests for designs were made to the major German aircraft manufacturers early in World War II, coinciding with the passage of the Destroyers for Bases Agreement.

The most promising proposals were based on conventional principles of aircraft design and would have yielded aircraft very similar in configuration and capability to the Allied heavy bombers of the day. These included the Messerschmitt Me 264 (an all-new design), the Focke-Wulf Fw 300 (based on the existing Fw 200), Focke Wulf Ta 400 and the Junkers Ju 390 (based on the Ju 290). Prototypes of the Me 264 were built, but it was the Ju 390 that was selected for production. Only two prototypes were constructed before the programme was abandoned.

It is widely claimed (and widely disputed) that in early 1944 the second prototype made a trans-Atlantic flight to within 20 km (12 mi) of the U.S. coast

Other proposals were far more exotic jet- and rocket-powered designs, e.g. as a flying wing. The Horten brothers designed the Horten Ho XVIII, a flying wing powered by six turbojets based on experiences with their existing Ho X design. The Arado company also suggested a six-jet flying wing design, the Arado E.555

This photo blow is what the previous threads were referring to: I found this picture and thought it would be good to put here (I hadn't seen it before)

You have to give credit where credit is due. Had not Hitler been in charge, Germany may have pulled off a world take over-had they developd their ideas fully first. Amazing though.

I still have to say they didn't possess the knowledge that would be able them to think of all the problems and issues that they would have faced once they left orbit, or got into the higher atmosphere. They would have lost many of pilots I believe.

Except that the pictures used there, are not what the story was about. The "Amerika" bomber was not a some spacecraft, but a 4 engine propeller aircraft.

I refer you to the additional ifo link inthe OP. Please see X-wing, winged and atomic craft, as well as other. Yes, Iknow about the program PART you talk of. That is why I put this thread up as it eludes to the move advanced concepts/ideas.

Well its mostly Pravdas fault, putting up photos that have nothing to do with the article and captions, its quite misleading and someone would read it thinking those artist concepts are what it is talking about, which is not true.

Actually it could be argued that Nazi Germanys insistence on these superweapons, actually harmed them because it took resources away from proven effective weapons programs. And ones like these in the pictures, would have never actually been within the technical reach, especially during wartime, and would have exhausted their military funding if tried

Nazi Germany saw it differently that the Amerika rakete (A9/A10) and the Sanger plane allowed Germany to develop a second front and deplete USA's resources trying to protect against attacks on it's home territory.

Al Quaeda works to the same principles.

Here's the German spacesuit of WW2, developed by Draeger.

Actually, they look more like movie suits

Here are the real Draeger suits

After he wrote Mein Kampt, Hitler wrote a second book in 1928, not published until 1961. in his second book Hitler prophesized a coming war between Germany & USA. Hitler was determined that Germany had no choice except to destroy USA which is why Germany declared war on USA AS EARLY AS 11 December 1941 just days after Pearl harbour.




    Hitler predicted war with USA in 1928


    The Sanger sub orbital bomber project began 1935




    RLM issued their requirement for an Amerika bomber in 1937, as Projekt 1062, which became the Me264



THE enlarged bomb bay for the He177 V38prototype followed by four completed He177 A-7 Amerika bomber aircraft

    HWA began the Atomic bomb project in 1939



In 1969 Ju390 chief test pilot Hans Joachim Pancherz gave an interview to the Daily Telegraph falsely asserting his Ju390 was the Amerika bomber. Pancher was fully aware that RLM abandoned the Ju390 V3 bomber on 29 June 1944.
on that same day the Luftwaffe Quartermaster General paid Junkers for 7 completed Ju390 aircraft (only three prototypes were ordered in 1942) There were many candidates for the Amerika bomber. The final bomber was a hybrid He177 A-7 aircraft powered by two DB613 engines
