Aircraft History and Specification

In 1944, Reichsmarschall Goring instructed the Messerschmitt and Junkers to design and produce very long-range bombers which would be capable of carrying a 4,000 kg bomb load, at high speeds and over extreme distances, to mount strategic air strikes against the US and USSR. After test-fly the Horten VII flying wing design, the RLM declared the flying-wing to be the ideal configuration for a long-range bomber. Parallel to the Mersserschmitt and Junkers works, the German aviation designers also began to develop flying-wing bomber projects. By the time BMW entered the field of aviation design with their innovatory bomber projects. One was the jet-powered bomber in the layout of flying-wing. The Strahlbomber Project II was powered by two BMW 109-018 jet engines. This arrangement would provide sufficient inherent stability should one engine fail. In March 1945, all further development work on long-range bomber projects were creased by order of the RLM. Only the Horten Ho.XVIII continued upon the instructions of Goring.
