The Horten Ho 229 (Sometimes called Gotha Go 229) was a prototype Jet Fighter/Bomber designed by Riemar and Walter Horten.

The Horten Ho 229 was the first jet-powered 'Flying Wing', it lacked rudders, it used it's air breaks to act as it's rudders. The majority of the wing contains fuel tanks, increasing the chance of extreme damage when attacked.

The majority of the wing sections are wood with metal framing.

The Horten Ho 229 contained two Junkers Jumo 109-004B-2 Turbojets within the center.

A Horten H.IX V2 flew against a Messerschmitt Me 262 multiple times, in a simulated dogfight (flying was real, no shooting though). Results of said dogfight confirmed that the Ho 229 out performs the Me 262.

The only surviving Ho 229 V3 is currently being assessed for restoration at Udvar-Hazy facility's restoration shops.
