HISTORY: 
The Luftwaffe Transport Command in 1940 realized a need for a large capacity cargo and troop aircraft in preparation for invasions of Britain and Russia. A Giant Glider was decided upon as a cost effective solution and quickly issued to Junkers and Messerschmitt the development of two accepted proposals; the Junkers Ju.322 Mammut & Messerschmitt Me.321 Gigant. The Mammut was built using non-strategic materials – wood. Cargo was carried inside the enormous wing with the capacity to carry a medium tank and was loaded through a clamshell door in the nose. The Mammut took flight in April of 1941 towed by a Junkers Ju 90, but while it was unstable during the tow it quickly stabilized once released. However, do to its enormous size, it took two weeks to tow it back to the launch airfield using a tank. They were armed with 3 – MG 15 machine guns and had a wingspan of 203 feet and an aircraft length of 105 feet.
