there was also a JU188, JU388(as mentioned by Waldo) and prototypes of the JU488, but those were apparently damaged by "French Saboteurs" and never flew and the programme was abandoned in Nov'44. Also check out the Heinkel HE177 and the prototype only HE277 long range bomber. Don't have photos to upload myself I'm afraid.

That just looks awesome.

Kind of like a b*stard cross between Geiger's Alien and a Ju-88.

He-177..."Aircrews nicknamed it the Luftwaffenfeuerzeug (Luftwaffe's lighter) or the 'Flaming Coffin' due to the engines' tendency to catch fire on the early versions of the aircraft"
