The Messerschmitt Me 264; Nazi Superfortress

The Nazi Superfortress

It is often overlooked that Hitler fully expected to have to wage war on the Unites States and had been actively planning for that.

And for an ambitious aircraft designer like Willy Messerschmitt, this presented an opportunity like no other.

Unfortunately, because of personal feuds and his company’s capabilities, he was never quite able to make it beyond a single prototype.
