Ta 400
  • Long-Range Bomber
  • Focke-Wulf

The aircraft was named after the chief designer and technical director of the firm, Kurt Tank. The Ta-400 was designed to bombard enemy strategic targets and conduct naval warfare in the Atlantic at a great distance from their bases. The development of the Ta-400 was carried out at a very fast pace, but only working documentation was produced. It never came to the construction of a prototype of this aircraft.
