The second World War was devastating, but also plenty of technical advancements were made possible by the combatants’ desire to win.
Weapons of WWII magazine looked at some of Hitler’s advanced weaponry in its fall issue, on the 76th anniversary of the start of the second World War.
Germany had some incredible weapons for that day and age, including a flying stealth bomber, a rocket-powered fighter, a remote-controlled mini-tank and a radio-guided bomb.
The Horten Ho 229 was a stealth bomber capable of carrying 2,000 pounds of firepower at 49,000 feet, and it could reach speeds topping 600mph. The Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet was the Luftwaffe’s rocket-powered jet capable of reaching speeds of up to 700mph. The Goliath tracked mine is a radio-controlled unmanned small tank that was used to destroy enemy vehicles such as tanks. Finally, the Fritz X radio-guided bomb could penetrate 28 inches of armor after being dropped from 20,000 feet, way above the reach of antiaircraft equipment at the time.
