Intended as a long-range bomber for bombing New York, this actually was cobbled together out of an assortment of parts from the Ju-188, Ju-288 and Ju-388. The use of existing components was supposed to make it easier to put into production. Unfortunately, for reasons that defy comprehension, the Germans decided to have the prototype assembled in occupied France, where the workers did everything they could to sabotage the project.

The hierarchy of the Nazi regieme had its priority's wrong,otherwise an aircraft carrier as well as a "Ural Bomber" would have been built.

Luckily for the Allies,many such advanced aircraft such as this never got beyond the prototype or even paper stage.

WRONG, WRONG, AND ALSO WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS PLANE WAS MADE IN FRANCE IN 1944. IT WAS DESTROYED BY THE FRENCH RESISTANCE. AND I HAVE REAL PROVE, MY GRANFATHER TOLD ME THAT HE WAS IN THE RESISTANCE GROUP THAT DESTROYED THE JU 488 WITH STEN GUNS AND STICKGRENADES AND EGG GRENADES. AFTER THEY DROVE THE GERMANS OUT, HE MANGED TO TAKE A PHOTO OF THE WRECKAGE BEFORE MOVING OUT. ITS NOT THE WELL KNOWN PICTURE TAKEN BY THE GERMANS AFTER TAKING IT BACK, THIS PHOTO COSTS OVER $700,000. THATS HOW RARE THIS PHOTO IS.
