The next design, the Ho VII, was similar to the Ho V, but was fitted with more powerful 179kW Argus As 10C engines. The sole Ho VII is thought to have been tested at Oranienburg, where it was located in March 1945.

What a shock the allies must have had, finding stuff like this.It must have been like a time warp into the future.Most of this advanced and research stuff was shipped to the US and tested to destruction, or adopted. thank christ the war ended when it did.

Good point, Gray - a lot of us thought it was Spielberg's attempt to show us a true 'Nazi-like' modern 'plane.

Is this the raiders of the lost ark plane?

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
