Untitled[edit]

What does it mean that this WWII German aircraft designer after the war moved to Argentina like many others and continued his career under a new name, "Pedro Matthies"? Was this a sneaky escape, or just a practical matter of convenience? [[217.132.5.41]]


"The Instituto Aerotécnico later became Argentina's military aeroplane factory, the Fabrica Militar de Aviones."

Up to my understanding, both "Instituto Aerotécnico" and "Fabrica Militar de Aviones" refer to the same instirution but in different time frames. Need to research more on this, as online I could not find yet enough evidence to prove this.

When I find such evidence will include it in the "Fabrica Militar de Aviones" article.

WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Tag & Assess 2008[edit]

Article reassessed and graded as start class. --dashiellx (talk) 19:23, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

The word 'Nazi'[edit]

The word 'Nazi' is conspicuously absent from this article. What was his relationship with the Nazi government? And was he courted by foreign governments after WWII, like Werner von Braun?

What a bizarre article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.71.40.7 (talk) 23:16, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Unless Kurt Tank was a member of the Nazi Party, the word "Nazi" is as irrellevant here as the word "Democrat" would be in the article about (American) President George W. Bush. (71.22.47.232 (talk) 03:17, 2 January 2011 (UTC))

Richter[edit]

This article specifically says that Richter intended to power aircraft with nuclear fission, but I've never seen any reference that specifies that's what he was attempting to do during or after the war. Given the nature of the Huemul project, that seems to me to be a hasty assumption. 98.154.22.134 (talk) 01:28, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
