TOP 10 LARGEST MILITARY AIRPLANES - BOEING B-29 SUPERFORTRESS - #7

No list of over sized military aircraft would be complete without the B-29 Superfortress, which was one of the largest and most advanced planes to serve during WWII. Introduced in May 1944, this American heavy bomber was capable of delivering 10 tons of its deadly payload to unleash on targets and at speeds and altitudes few interceptors were able to match.

The B-29 weighed a phenomenal 37 tons and was more advanced than its predecessor, the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. The Superfortress also had a fully pressurized cabin, which was necessary considering the altitudes it operated at a maximum of 31,850 feet (40,000 feet, according to some sources). The B-29 was also equipped with computer-assisted machine gun turrets, making it probably the best-defended bomber of its time and a true technological terror.

And terror it did indeed inflict, for this ultimate WWII aircraft will forever be remembered for its role in laying waste to the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the atomic bombs it dropped in 1945.
