These rare and mostly previously unpublished documents cover the development of aircraft designed by the brothers Reimar and Walter Horten, including the Horten HO 229. Recently this plane has also been called “Hitler’s Stealth fighter”, even though the plane’s stealth capabilities may have been incidental.

An additional United States intelligence report shows that the Japanese were developing technology that was much more explicitly stealth than what was applied to the Horton Ho 229.

According to William Green, author of “Warplanes of the Third Reich,” the Ho 229 was the first “flying wing” aircraft with a jet engine. It was the first plane with design elements, which can be referred to as stealth technology, to hinder the effectiveness of radar to detect the plane.

In 2008, Northrop-Grumman using available design plans built a full-size reproduction of the H.IX V3 using materials available in Germany in 1945. The reproduction was tested to see if the design was radar resistant.

In 2009, the National Geographic Channel aired a program titled, “Hitler’s Stealth Fighter,” about the plane and the new work at Northrop-Grumman.


A report created in 1945 during World War II by the Intelligence Department of the Air Materiel Command titled, “Technical Report No. 76-45 on Horten Tailless Aircraft.”

The report contains information about Horten aircraft dating back to 1931. The information in this report was collected by the U.S. Naval Technical Mission Europe from captured documents and from an informant who was a draftsman for the Horten Brothers. The informant is reported to have been in continuous close contact with the Horten Brothers, until the time of his capture.


This October 1945 report was produced by the British aircraft authority, Royal Aircraft Establishment, Farnborough. It was produced from information gained from visits to Germany and an interrogation of the Horten Brothers.


Also included in this collection is a Naval Technical Mission to Japan intelligence report, “Target Report - Japanese Anti-Radar Coverings.” The report shows that Japan was more on track in developing what would be called stealth technology. From the report’s introduction:

"Japanese research in the field of anti-radar coverings was quite intense, and while several research products proved to be rather successful, according to the data presented, it was difficult to use, in practice.”
