I'm no engineer but it doesn`t look to me as if it would have done well in deep or soft sand.

@Tovarish: You're thinking of the rocket planes? Like the Me-163 Komet? The rate of fire on their cannons was too slow, but otherwise they were deadly.
They also tended to explode for no particular reason...

The Me-262 was superb at what it was designed to do: shoot down heavy bombers.

The whole concept of a "land battleship" was popular throughout the 30`s, several nations built or designed them. But in a mobile war? You`d just drive around them and let them run out of gas...

Jet aircraft weren't very effective during the war though. They went to fast to properly engage the standard propeller craft of the time.

Trying to build a battleship on the ground. Not the smartest idea they had. Even the really smart ideas they had were delayed so much they weren't effective. Germany could`ve had jet planes back in 1939, V2 rockets back in 1940.

Bigger target for the air force, would have made no difference
