Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Arado E.381 was a parasite fighter aircraft (Kleinstj ger - "smallest fighter") designed by Arado Flugzeugwerke in December 1944 for the Luftwaffe of Nazi Germany during World War II. There were three proposed designs for the plane, each being slightly different from each other. Each of the three proposed designs had fuel capacity for only two target runs, after which the pilot would have needed to glide without power to the ground and land on skids. The development was cancelled due to lack of funds and official support. Had the Arado E.381 been completed it would have been carried aloft by and launched from an Arado Ar 234 carrier aircraft to attack Allied aircraft. It was designed with a rocket engine to quickly close and fire on American and British bombers.show more
