    " for craft capable of meeting the "3 x 1,000" requirement: to carry 1,000 kilos of bombs a distance of 1,000 kilometers with a speed of 1,000 kilometers by hour."

    That requirement delayed Me262 development and probably helped shorten the war. Hope same doesn't happen to the Horten.

    Perhaps visibility downwards is not good, but please search for cost of a camera + screen system, this can be applied to other airplanes, as replicas of Polikarpov I-16, difficult to handle at landing, many pilots died for this.
    btw, this Soviet fighter had a 'metric' replica of an engine supplied by the US. British Petroleum supplied Stalin with fuels, same as they did with general isimo Franco in Spain; then, USA complains, cries, barks, about the spread of Castrist communism in the Americas. ???
    It's good that the warning by Henri Mignet (Pou du ciel, Sky louse): 'Sport aviation is a solitary sport, don't think in taking your girlfriend to fly on Sunday', is no longer valid.
    This HX-2 is a development of an Horten design, the PUL-10, 'Pulten' meaning in German: 'Student desks'.

    And single seat has best visibility. Less CG problems.

    History! The 1000,1000,1000 concept wasn't a big waste, imho. Some interesting designs, if too late, and long after the Me-262 was developed.

    The Big waste was the "Bomber B" program that failed across the board because the engines specified never made production status. Multiple planes, multiple manufacturers, about a Billion $ ( I don't recall what year billion, but all for nought. )

    which paralleled the U.S. R-40c program for next generation fighters that also had zero success, mostly because the engines specified never made it. Including the XP-56, XP-54, XP-55, XP-67, etc.

    I don't know which was most costly.

    I suspect it you include the He-177, the bomber B was the "winner".
