The Luftwaffe’s ‘Mistel’ program was a composite aircraft aircraft program that featured single seat fighters (usually Bf-109′s or Fw-190′s) carrying unmanned, specially outfitted bombers into combat. Rather than flown with a crew and conventional ordnance, the bombers were packed with explosives, released from their fighter aircraft, and flown via remote by the fighter pilot into their targets.  Mistel aircraft saw use in combat on the eastern and western fronts, some were shot down by U.S.

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger (English: Shrike) was a German single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s and widely used during World War II. Powered by a radial engine, the 190 had ample power and was able to lift larger loads than its well-known counterpart, the Messerschmitt Bf 109. The 190 was used by the Luftwaffe in a wide variety of roles, including day fighter, fighter-bomber, ground-attack aircraft and, to a lesser degree, night fighter.

The Heinkel He 162 Volksjaeger (German, "People's Fighter"), the name of the project of the Emergency Fighter Program design competition, was a German single-engine, jet-powered fighter aircraft fielded by the Luftwaffe in World War II. Designed and built quickly, and made primarily of wood as metals were in very short supply and prioritised for other aircraft, the He 162 was nevertheless the fastest of the first generation of Axis and Allied jets.

Focke Wulf Ta 154 & Fw 190 Mistel, the German 'composite aircraft' used towards the end of World War II.  The set of struts also known as the "Beethoven device" mounted a single seater fighter plane atop a converted TA 154 bomber. The attached machine was supposed to bring the bomb to the target and then release it. Due to its clumsiness and the limited deployable radius, only 200 were made.
