    One of the most versatile and lethal aircraft of the Luftwaffe during World War II, the Junkers Ju-87 has been tested in numerous versions. The link you find on this post provides a collection of pictures showing several of them, some exclusive and never before seen by me in other publications. To see the photos, visit the link below:

    I share with you a full report and photos of one of the most curious and faster design of aircraft produced in Germany before the war and ended up not entering service. Visiting the link below you will find an extensive report, many photos and a poll. Click the link below, make a visit and give your opinion about the impact and supremacy that this plane would have given the Luftwaffe, had been produced and entered into active service.

    The German arrow!

    Undoubtedly one of the fastest aircraft designed in Germany during World War II. I share with you tons of photos of the Dornier Do 335, including rare color images, in flight and many others, some never before seen by me, including photos with Allied markings. One question, had entered into service and produced on a large scale, what its impact on the war? What do you think? Visit the link below, see all the photos and answer the poll.

    Winter operations of the Luftwaffe

    Post  pampa14 on Sun Apr 03, 2016 3:21 pm


    I share with you this amazing, impressive and interesting collection of photos showing the various types of winter camouflage applied in Luftwaffe aircraft during World War II, especially in the Theater of Operations of the Russian front. Visiting the link below you will find a lot of pictures, some rare and colorful. Some of them I did not know and had never seen. No doubt an excellent source of research and references.

    A curious German weapon

    Post  pampa14 on Sun Apr 17, 2016 3:00 pm


    I share with you photos of one of the most curious designs of the Luftwaffe during World War II. I'm talking about Junkers Ju-287 and its unusual design. If it had entered into service and built in quantity would have changed the course of the war? What do you think? Visit the link below, you will find it a lot of photos and a full report on this almost unknown aircraft. I hope you enjoy.

    War is a time of extreme measures and no doubt one of them took shape in Fieseler Fi103. The following website brings a special report containing an amazing collection of photos of this German design tested by the Luftwaffe in the final years of World War II. To access the photos, visit the link below:

    The Messerschmitt 323 Gigant was typical of nazi engineering philosophy bigger is better that philosophy/ideology cost them the war, wasting valuable resources like their super guns and super tanks wonderwaffe had they concentrated on building 1 tank type Panzer 5 (Panther) and Hetzer or PanzerJaegar 4 as their tank destroyer ... the soviet union was able to produce massive amounts of military hardware was down to standardisation of military hardware

    The link below shows a collection of images including various types of aircraft in the service of the Luftwaffe during World War applied with camouflage to operate mainly in Theatre of Operations of the North Africa. Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful camouflage schemes already created. Do you agree with me? Visit the link below and see for yourself.

    The "Heavyweights" of Luftwaffe

    Post  pampa14 on Sat Jun 04, 2016 3:06 pm


    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.

    nope it looked a very impractical design compared to the more practical Arado 234 Blitz which heavily influenced future jet bombers and civilian jet airliners

    had it been introduced in 1943 it could have turned things around with it's combination of speed and heavy firepower thankfully it only entered limited service in the last months of WW2 .. the push/pull tandem engines probably put the Arrow/Anteater at the pinnacle of piston engined aircraft design/development

    Ho-229:

    That was an amazing project, the plane had a service celling of 16 km, could reach speed of 1000 km/h with extremely good performance at high altitudes. And it was designed by guys with no technical education.

    Not really.

    It was not intended to be difficult to detect on radar... it was intended to be aerodynamically efficient and low drag for long flight range.

    The first attempt to make a stealth aircraft was a Soviet aircraft... can't remember its name at the moment but it was made from glass and the design was very difficult to spot when new, but over time the the stresses on the aircraft caused cracks which made it rather more visible.

    Of course during WWI any aircraft with painted camouflage could be considered stealthy too...

    Or this one, really an attempt to be stealth (at that time, for eyes catching) :

    I share with you this special and illustrated report bringing some pictures of one of the most secret and mysterious projects of the Luftwaffe during World War II. Visiting the link below, in addition to photos, you can also contribute to the discussion by answering the poll if these projects have helped in the development of Western and Russian fighter aircraft in the post war. What do you think? Visit the link below and leave your opinion.
