Its another What If thread Just been reading up on the Hughes H-4 Hercules If this aircraft had a successful development and had succeeded in meeting its original contract. That is being ready for full operation by 1944 would it have been a Big contributor to the War effort ? Yes I know of its constant delays and that it never really got off the ground But what if it did ? Being able to fly 3000 miles with 750 equipped troops and a Sherman tank is impressive. I think it would have had a big impact for both the European and the Pacific theater I also wonder if they just added a couple more Radials this thing would get off the Ground ?
