Nazi Germany's Last Jet Fighter - Argentina 1950

Recommended Posts

This short documentary was just released. It's a fascinating look at the role Argentina played in the continued development of the "Last Jet Fighter..."

Very interesting video Bill. That was all new to me. It also explains why so many of the post WWII military jets looked so much alike.

Pulqui II, the next Milviz military development project revealed? :biggrin:

I thought about posting that video, but then thought Avsim would censor the N-word. 😀

It was honestly all new to me as well Ted. And no, there's just not enough information available to create literally a "one-off aircraft."

After skipping all the politically-charged parts (of which I don't feel like discussing), it turns to be a very interesting documentary. Thanks for sharing, Bill! I didn't even know about the Pulqui. Maybe the fact the only surviving Pulqui is not stored here but in Buenos Aires explains why I was never aware of this until now.

For reference: the plant where all these Argentinean aircraft were developed is just 8 km away from my apartment. Just search for Fábrica Argentina de Aviones (or simply FAdeA). They still do exist, although now they are more a MRO and a component supplier (for the Embraer C-390 mostly) than an aircraft factory. Too bad I can't go and take a look during this lockdown.

Luis,

Argentina like my native USA has many parts of it's history that are less than "savory". I'm sure in time as we all come to grips with the truth we will be able to move on. I still remember coming home from work to my apartment in Bariloche in the early 90s and wondering why the Federal police were "guarding" a house down the street. It was a war criminal who had lived there for year openly. Menem didn't want him to run to Paraquay or Brasil. They finally extradited him to Italy. Menem didn't want the past to color the future.

 

Suerte y dale Boca!

Another aircraft of similar lineage would be the Saab Tunnan.

If Germany had that plane during the war I think there would be no doubt they would have had air superiority. Thank goodness the war ended when it did. I know they had the ME262, but this plane appeared to be a step above. Thank goodness their fearless leader decided to use the ME262 as an attack bomber first because it delayed the use of it being used as a fighter jet. By the time it was switched over to a fighter jet the war was already lost, but the short time it was used it definitely had a devastating effect.

If you have tons of time and nothing to do, go through Mark Felton's extensive library of videos.  He has covered some pretty obscure things and I think he always does a great job with his videos.
