Horten Ho-III

In 1938 the Hortens set up a facility at Berlin's Tempelhof Airport, where they constructed the Ho III sailplane. This was in effect a scaled-up Ho II, and was fitted with a retractable tandem-wheel undercarriage. Four Ho Ills were built, one of which was fitted with an engine, the propeller blades folding in flight to reduce drag.

It would have made an awesome combat glider during WWII
