In 1943, instructed from Reichsmarschall Goring for the design
and produce very long-range bombers which would be capable of attacking
targets in the U.S.A. and Soviet industrial plants far beyond the Germany,
Daimler-Benz combined with Focke-Wulf to form a joint study group for the
development of ultra long-range aircraft. These strikes were to be carried
out in non-stop flight and without recourse to aerial refuelling. The two
designs, simply referred to as Project-A and -B were to have been built in
The Project-A was a carrier aircraft designed to transport a jet bomber
between its tall and fixed undercarriage legs.
This combination was to have been capable of delivering a 30,000kg bomb
load over distance of 17,000km.
These destructive effect was far greater than that of conventional bombs.
The project was not went behind the drawing board.
