My father fought against these during the Battle of Washington in 1946. He said they were much scarier than the Me-262s because the Lerche had wire-guided air-to-air missiles that could disintegrate allied bombers. Also the engines were very loud.

    He was shot down and captured by the germans, but brought home after the end of the war. It's a miracle that we managed to save western europe and north america from german forces, can't say the same for the people in eastern europe.

        Dont care about the politics. Just hate the "people" in general. Theyd be just as shitty if they were fascist or liberals or whatever else.

    If he fought in the battle of washington, what Allied bombers were present? Bombers are offensive aircraft, not useful in defensive fighting.

      The us used b52s to strike nva attacking fire bases in vietnam
      They also used bones to strike attacking Taliban in Afghanistan

    I genuinely wonder why wire-guided A2A missiles were not used in the Zestroyer aircraft tbh.

      I can imagine that guiding it in by Mk1 Eyeball means the launching aircraft has to remain fairly steady while guiding the missile in, which would make it pretty vulnerable to defensive gunners and escort fighters.

        Doubt it is worse than the 30mm minechenen (sp wtf) cannons that were throwing literal monster energy cans at tennis ball throwing machine velocities in term of standoff etc. You could even put it in an Me 110 and use the Fritz-X type guidance, having the backseater control it after launch, cranking around and turning and burning.

        Kraut AAA defense in general is mind-bogglingly moronic to me. Like, they had V-1s, and decided yeeting shit into farmer's fields outside of London was a better use than making a Black person rigged SA-2 which could wipe out an entire bomber box. Germans are good at designing shit and terrible at using it, I guess.

    >muh bomber formations

    Meanwhile in the real world:
    >70% attrition rate of initial deployed units within the first month of combat
    Turns out that wire-guided AA missiles are a liability when you've got to deal with escort screens and interceptors.

    My grandpa was part of 3rd armored and the drive on London in 1949 and took part in the liberation there. He said that M46s had a hard time against the Panther IIIs and the US didn't have enough M103s to make a difference at the time, but thankfully the Germans never had enough of the panthers.
