Wolf Hirth GmbH, a prewar manufacturer of sailplanes, made wooden subassemblies for Messerschmitt projects during the Second World War, including a high-speed glider-trainer for Me 163 Komet pilots, and components for the Me 321 and Me 323 Gigants. The reestablished company, owned largely by Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm, built Arnold Wagner's Acrostar competition aerobatic aircraft in small numbers, and supported the Bolkow Bo 107, 207, 208, and 209 lightplanes.
