An Awesome Horten Ho-229 !

8,244 Itamar3553  3.7 years ago

The Ho-229 was an experimental WWII flying wing jet fighter/bomber, built by the Horten brothers. My replica is armed with 2xMK-103 30mm AT guns and 2xMK-108 30mm AA guns.

This replica is one of the most accurate and detiled replicas ever created, and I think that it's the best flyier of them, because I added to it an internal rudder, that stops it from wobbling in turns.

It has a really short takeoff and a stable flight, and you can land it safely and shortly using the airbrakes.

It is very successful in dogfights and dive bombing (you can add tons of bombs on it if you want to)

I hope you will enjoy it, and thanks for your support and upvotes!

    @PFCWesty155 It was made of wood because wood is more hard to detect by radar,even the paint was anti-radar... google it if you don't believe me.@PFCWesty155

    a little fun fact about these beauties, is that the two that were actually made, (which we have one recovered, in a secret government wearhouse, true story though) the main frame of it was costructed of wood.

    @Itamar3553 its guns were VEERRRY powerful, I don't remember caliber, it was 30mm (!!!) or 20mm, can't remember, and it supposed to be a bomber. Read wiki about it, it's project "1000-1000-1000", which means 1000 kg bomb with speed 1000KMH to 1000km distance.

    @MEGANOOB yeahhh, I don't know why did those germans planned to arm such a big plane with only two cannons.... :)
    I think that It could be a better fighter if if it carried more fire power (and if it was operational at all)
