The Go 147 looks much like one of the Westland-Hill Pterodactyls of the same period, and in fact was commissioned by the German Air Ministry (RLM) to investigate the aerodynamics of the same basic layout, with a possible fighter type in mind. A Go 146a unpowered glider version exhibited some minor control problems, but these were not considered serious enough to prevent the construction and flying of the powered Go 147b. However, in the end the RLM favored more conventional types, and the Go 147 faced the same dead-end fate as its British counterpart. [These words based on the entry in William Green's "Warplanes of the Third Reich".]
