By the end of World War Two, the once mighty Luftwaffe was a pitiful shadow of its former self - a beaten force shattered by the massive superiority of Allied airpower. This fascinating programme tells how German High Command contributed to its downfall, despite the undoubted skill of German fighter pilots and several innovations in aircraft design. German Fighters features archive footage taken from German and Allied sources and the very latest 3D computer generated animation techniques
In 1944, Hitler ordered the full-scale production of, what he called the Miracle Weapons. A new breed of aircraft designed to change Germanyâ€™s declining military fortunes. As a result, the first Jet Fighters were unleashed on the world. The potentially devastating ME262 and Arado 234 were underdeveloped and their moderate successes could not prevent the desperate situation which resulted in the introduction of the dangerous ME163 Kommet and the disastrous Heinkel HE162 the Peoples Defender, more dangerous to its pilot than the enemy.Featuring rare archive footage, stunning 3-D computer graphics and rare film of the last surviving jet aircraft, this is a sinister glimpse into what might have been.
