Nazi Secret Weapons of World War II

Towards the end of World War II, Nazis sought solutions that would reverse the course of the war. Nazi weapons was innovative, but lack of time did not allow the final development of their weapons from imagination. Something is built, but most had not experienced combat use. Learn what secret Nazi weapon was planned.

1. Sonnengewehr

Although never built due to the very complicated plans, Solar cannon is supposed using satellites out of orbit to direct sun-rays on Earth. Spotlight on the satellite is supposed to be great about 9 square kilometers and at a height of 8,200 kilometers that reflect sufficiently strong beam that could burn a small town. Later, the ideas used for James Bond movie "Die Another Day".

2. V-1 Reichenberg

V1 rocket was supposed to be the forerunner of guided missiles of the type used in the presentUnfortunately, since then there was no real guiding technology, a rocket was supposed to manage by professional. Fortunately, the rocket was never used, although a lot of the pilots killed in the testing. 

3. Fliegerfaust rocket launcher

This launcher is supposed to function as today's minigun, but despite good idea, did not experience too much success. He used a missile instead of bullets and edited solely on airplanes.

4. A9/A10 rockets

As the name implies, A9 and A10 missiles were supposed to serve the Germans to attack America directly from Europe. The range was 5.000 kilometers and the pilot was supposed to drop the warhead on US cities.    

5. Sound gun

Germans are greatly tested the use of sound as a weapon, but thankfully they failed.

6. Henschel HS 132

In order to reduce the influence of G-force at high speeds and revolutions, the Germans were planning to set up a pilot in the lying position. Above the pilot is set BMW 003 jet engine, but unfortunately, in the final stages of testing the Russians broke into the base and stop the revolution in aviation.

7. Schwerer Gustav  

"Heavy Gustav" or his sister "Dora", which is in the picture, was the biggest gun of World War II. Due to the weight he had to be on track, and to concept its power, it is enough to write that successfully destroyed the Russian supply bunker that was located under the sea. Later came the idea to switch Gustav to caterpillars, but this did not happen. 

8. Ships class Graf Zeppelin

Before the war the Wehrmacht wanted supremacy on the seas, the construction of aircraft carriers, which would be at par with the US. After the start, the government has decided to give priority to submarines (U-Boat) and only one Graf Zeppelin was successfully launched into the sea. Unfortunately, he never experienced combat use, and after the war sunk by the Russian side.

9. Ships H class

Ships H class were to become the rulers of the world's seas. By the size they should be greater than the Japanese Yamato class that were much bigger than any US ship. With a range of 30.000 km ships H class could be a threat anywhere in the world.  

10. Panzer VIII Maus

Since we have already written about the maus, as the largest tank of World War II, we will not make it longer. Maus weight 180 tons and was supposed to turn the tide, but because of the Russian offensive made only one instance, a prototype. He has two heavy cannon, one of 128 mm and the other of 75 mm. Due to the heavy weight Maus could not pass by bridges, and was prepared for passage at the bottom of the river, watertight and with snorkel. 

11. Landkreuzer P1000 Ratte

Even Maus was nothing compared to Landkreuzeru L1000 which was designed in 1942, Krupp. Names Ratte (rat), this tank was supposed to be about 30 meters long, weighs about 1000 tons and high as four-storey building. Ratte is supposed to manage 40 people while the armament consisted of two guns of 280 mm and 128 mm. With these weapons in this tank would be 8 anti-aircraft nests for protection of aircraft. With 8 diesel engine, Ratte was to achieve a speed of 40 km / h and a range of 200 kilometers. Right Nazi weapon that was supposed to tip the balance. 

12. Krummlauf periscope rifle

Although a great idea, Krummlauf rifle has not had much success due to the fact that she could not be used longer. The reason is of course changes the direction of the bullet in the barrel, which is very detrimental to the rifle.  

13. Horten Ho 229

Horten Ho 229 was the first jet bomber in the world. He had a range of 900 kilometers at a speed of 900 km / h at an altitude of 15 kilometers. It was built only three copies, which was not enough for a reversal in the war.
