I share with you a report showing a fantastic collection of photos of aircraft designed during the Second World War to bring war and destruction far beyond German borders. However, all of them did not pass the stage of prototypes and testing. What do you think if these planes had been built in quantity? They would have changed the course of the war? Visit the link, see the photos and give your opinion through the poll at the end of the article.

Well it depends. There was a prevailing view that "the bomber will always get through" and that Germany had failed to build a strategic bomber forces that proved to be such an asset for the Allies, but then, strategic bombing was a low yield high risk endeavour as all the Allies found out - the British resorted to night time operations while the Americans simply took their punches on the chin (and in one case, suspended operations to recover. Noticeably, US bombing became more successful whenever fighter escort was available - witness the effect that the longer range P51 had over American results.

Germany lacked long range fighters and for this reason, not to mention the German inability to appreciate Allied radar coverage, and the sturdy defense of Britain by the RAF, it seems unlikely that Germany would have gained as much as the Allies had by these aeroplanes. They would certainly have made an impression - but which one?
