Hitler’s Germany came closer to forcing peace terms on the Allies than has been so far admitted. It is well known that in all fields of endeavour, from pharmaceuticals to transport, architecture, and aeronautics, the Workers Reich was at least 100 years ahead of the Allies.
Hindsight reveals that had Germany poured its resources into defence rather than peaceful development then the salvation of the Reich would have been guaranteed. If for instance the Horten 229 had been deployed, this legendary aircraft would have totally changed the game during the Allied bombing war against Germany. This almost fully developed stealth aircraft was shielded from radar.
A prototype of the Horten Ho 2-29 did make a successful test flight just before Christmas 1944. But, by then, Hitler’s Germany was all but overcome by the combined forces of Bolshevik Russia, Britain and the United States.
Since then, an engineering team has reconstructed the bomber, albeit one that cannot fly, from blueprints. It was originally designed with a greater range and speed than any plane previously built. The Horten Ho 2-29 was the first aircraft to use stealth technology now deployed by the U.S. in its B-2 bombers.
It is conceded that the Reich’s scientific expertise was years ahead of the Allies, from the Panzer tanks through to the V-2 rocket. But, it was too late to develop new weapons. Germany, a nation smaller than the state of Texas, by 1943, realised that the pooled resources of three empires were unresponsive to a negotiated peace.
In 1943 Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering commanded that designers come up with a bomber that would meet his 1,000, 1,000, 1,000 requirements; an aircraft that could carry 1,000kg over 1,000km flying at 1,000km/h.
Reimar and Walter Horten, aviators and brothers suggested a Flying Wing design which they thought certain would meet Goering’s specifications.
The centre pod was made from a welded steel tube and was designed to be powered by a BMW 003 engine. But the most significant innovation was Reimar Horten’s inspiration to coat the cutting edge aircraft it in a mix of charcoal dust and wood glue which he believed would absorb the electromagnetic waves of radar. The hope was that, in conjunction with the aircraft’s sculpted surfaces, would render the long-range bomber almost invisible to radar detectors.
The United States finally came close to catching up on the Reich several decades later. They did so by working from the plundered plans of the brother aviators. The blueprints of the German aviators’ innovative aircraft was used by the U.S. in its first stealth aircraft in the early 1980s, the F-117A Nighthawk.
Until now, experts doubted claims that the Horten could function as a stealth aircraft. But, using the blueprints and the only remaining prototype craft, Northrop-Grumman defence firm built a full-size replica of a Horten Ho 2-29, which cost £154,000 and took 2,500 man-hours to construct.
The aircraft is not completely invisible to the type of radar used during the war, but it would have been stealthy enough and fast enough to reach England’s war cities long before Spitfires could be scrambled.
“If the Germans had had time to develop these aircraft, they could well have had an impact,” Peter Murton, aviation expert from the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, in Cambridgeshire told the Daily Mail. “In theory the flying wing was a very efficient aircraft design which minimised drag. It is one of the reasons that it could reach very high speeds in dive and glide and had such an incredibly long range.

“It is laughable to suggest that the war was about defending democracy. Hitler’s government was twice endorsed by the German electorate whilst warlord Winston Churchill was never elected; was Stalin also interested in defending democracy?
“It is undeniable that a prime reason for the weirdest allies in the history of warfare refused constant peace offers was the Allied intent to remove a trade competitor, to save Bolshevism, which the West had heavily invested in, and finally to plunder everything in the defeated Reich from ocean liners to hatpins.” (NOTE: YouTube has removed the original video of this cutting-edge aircraft).
