Messerschmitt Me 261

me261

Originally designed as a long-range record-breaking aircraft, the Me 261 had an extremely slender fuselage, but two DB606 engines - each consisting of two coupled DB601 V-12s. Work continued even during the war, because of their advanced design. With their cramped fuselages they had little military value, however. Three were built, one was used for reconnaissance flights in 1943.
