X-Plane 10 Messerschmitt Me-329. The Messerschmitt Me 329 was a design project for a heavy fighter and ground-attack aircraft developed towards the end of World War II. Like the Me 265, the Me329 used an advanced flying wing design. Other advanced touches included the pilot and navigator sitting tandem in a broad bubble canopy, and a remote-controlled rear gun in the tail. Development received a low priority, and while a full-scale glider mock-up was tested in the winter of 1944/5, work on the project was cancelled shortly after. There are two aircraft in this upload: The Me-329a as proposed, but as a mockup only, and the Me-329b as it would have been built (with turbojets). These engines have been substituted for engines bases on the British Gloster Meteor. By Billy Bargagliotti.
