I think the strangest one is the Lippisch P13a coal powered jet delta.

Well that just wouldn't work with all our carbon taxes that our shit as-s government instilled on us. But the funny part is the range, only 620 miles, not really convenient if you have to land so often and raid a farmers house for coal.

The Boeing 486 Sea Fighter looks kinda cool, the Lockheed Hopeless Diamond (1975) looks like a challenge.

The Hopeless Diamond is jut a kite flying backwards. It would be easy to build but have indifferent handling characteristics, probably hopeless in the wind
It was the for runner of the F117.

The Northrop XST was similar to the Hopeless diamond and F117.

It was probably the only aircraft in history where you had to carry a pick and shovel.
The powered coal dust technology is used in power stations where the dust is blown into the combustion area and burns like liquid fuel. The fly ash that is produced is used to make cinder blocks for the building industry.

The Germans were running out of crude oil because the allies were bombing the oil fields in Romania and had to look for alternative fuel sources.

You would think it would fly similar to a delta wing.

Pretty futuristic crap these guys thought of way back then like it and even like that 486 Sea Fighter, definitely ahead of their time.

Just watched a movie about the nazi aircraft. By their scientists admission they had help ?? Such a big jump in technology was simply amazing. Sometimes I wish they had not lost Not really, but It would have been nice to see what advancement they would have made.

They would fly like a delta, that`s why I don`t bother with them.
They like to tip over.

The Focke Wulf Ta 183 was it the prototype Mig 15????
The Ta 183 is on the bucket list once I have cleared the back log of unfinished builds.

The Nazis eventually put a man on the moon and gave the US a big leap forward in aero technology due to operation paper clip.
I just wonder how much influence the German designers had on the SR71. Most of it I guess but Kelly Johnson would have to take all the credit.

The German scientists certainly did have help, but not of the little green type, it was this genius.
