    Awesome pic, Crazy!...it appears to be a painting....
    Reminds me of the early Horten Bros. 'Flying Wing', predecessor of the Go-229, with push-pull engine and floats....

    Ive seen mistel composites around lots before, they are weird but because both the planes arent weird individually i would call it "the weirdest".

    It is!

    The '109 flies the '88 to the target, drops it, and steers it via a joystick...
