I share with you an interesting collection of pictures showing one of the projects launched at the end of World War II by Germany as part of its war effort to try to avoid the increasingly Allied bombing. The big question remains whether this rocket plane had been built in greater quantities and earlier would have changed the final outcome? What do you think? Visit the link below, see photos and give your opinion about it.

An iodea born of desperation. To be honest, it just wasn't practical, and wasted resources. The work on surface to air missiles showed greater promise than this crazy scheme. The problem with much of the late war aircraft development programs was that they were increasingly less sophisticated, not more so, and many depended on jet engines which were not so easy to produce in the numbers envisaged. Most of this kind of weapon was what had plagued German development from the start. Unlike the Allies, who used the most ridiculously simple gizmo's purely because they worked, the Germans were seeking that one weapon that would sweep the Allies from the skies in one go. So they looked for a technological solution and got bogged down in development issues because they just couldn't get ideas to work effectively or reliably. In any case it was too late. By the time the Natter was built and tested, the war was going to end in the Allies favour and anything else, no matter what powered it or what it carried into battle, could only prolong the agony even if a little.
