Gotha Go 244B
The Go 244 was the powered version of the Gotha Go 242 transport glider. The first examples of the Go 244 were delivered to operational units in Greece and Crete in March 1942. Some were also assigned to transport Geschwader in North Africa and the Eastern Front but on the former front they proved vulnerable to anti-aircraft fire and attacking fighter planes and were withdrawn, being replaced by Junkers Ju 52 or Messerschmitt Me 323 aircraft.
