    Definately a Mistel concept. I don't know about the top aircraft, but those are surely pulse jet motors like that of the V-1 Buzz-bomb, two of them.

    Probably another Mistel concept. From what I've heard/read they tested a lot of different setups for the program

    Mistelschlepp combination, tested in 1943, of a Messerschmitt Bf 109E-1 attached to a modified DFS 230B (D-14-664). Althought successful, this method of launching the DFS glider was not adopted operationally.

    Interesting... drop gliders and provide air support.

    More teeth than a C-47

    Yep, Grampa got it in one, and the top combination was the Me 328 V-1 test mounted above a Dornier Do 217E-4. This was NOT intended as a Mistel guided bomb, but for testing aerodynamics of the Me 328.

    Thats great Elvis. Sometimes something is so common that when something similar comes along you forget what you're snickering at!

    Thanks, Njaco!
    I figure the idea was probably inspired by the German's efforts, though.

    ...wouldn't be the first time.

    Those Mistel configurations were really weird. I believe the first picture shows the proposed piloted version of a V-1 flying bomb.
