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.
This combination was to have been capable of delivering a 30,000kg bomb
load over distance of 17,000km. The project-B was an improved version of
Project-A, that not only able to carry a jet bomber, but also able to
carry five manned explosive delivery systems to distant target areas.
Those destructive effect was far greater than that of conventional bombs.
The project was not went behind the drawing board.
