Mistel 1 Ju 88 A - 4 and Bf 109 F - 4
During World War II various weapons systems were devised to reach long
distance objects without great risks to the crews from enemy reactions.
One of the most unique systems was invented by German technicians. They
used a certain number of old JU-88 bombers and changed the cockpit to
carry a powerful load of explosives. The JU-88 was then mounted to the
bottom of a Messerschmitt BF-109 fighter plane. The pilot guided this
unit towards the target and finally released the JU-88 to hit the
target. This weapons system was used with some success during the first
months of 1945 against the Soviet Forces.
