In the summer of 1944, the design department of Focke Wulf drafted a short specification for the Ta154A Mistletoe unit with the Fw 190 A-8 as command aircraft. About 50 percent of the Ta154 was to be constructed of wood and used as an unmanned Heavy Bomber Destroyer against the American bomber formations. With a combined take-off weight of around 14.5 tons the 2.5 to 3.5 tons heavy warhead was attached to the nose of the Ta154. The pilots task of the was to flythe unit - from above and ahead or astern of the main bomber formation - and on a collision course separate the command aircraft and explode the Ta 154 amongst the bomber formation by remote control. According to calculations the explosive device would cause all aircraft within a radius of about 200 meters to crash. Inthe autumn of 1944 a few Ta 154 A-0 had been prepared accordingly. They were never test flown or operationally deployed.
