The Lyrics

The U-2 was the Skunk Work's first major endeavor demanded by the CIA for spying over Russia. The design is a US variant of the German WW2 DFS-228 recon rocket sailplane that was captured with similar performance guidelines, except that the German machine would have used anti-radar paint and underbelly grooves to remain undetected. In this regard, Lockheed was careless and Gary Powers was shot down in 1960. Here, I am using the U-2B early model that used to have a fixed rear view mirror on the left side so that the pilot could see if he was leaving contrails or not (this is not very well known). It also used slip tanks for extended range to 4520 miles and had a single RWR on the starboard rear wing for hostile radar detection...
Since the '60s
Recon destined
From Lockheed
CIA/USAF pride
'Cept for Powers
The first day of May*
SA** devoured
Recovered - yeah – discovered

[“Dragon Lady uncovered]

The U-2...

Ironball*** applied to all others
[DFS descendant**** was a wonder]
* May= May 1, 1960
** SA= SA-2 missile that brought down the U-2 over Sverdlosk and killed one of their own MiG-15s!
*** Ironball= anti-radar carbon paint developed from German WW2 types
**** DFS descendant= U-2 based on German DFS-228 recon sailplane with prone pilot in pressurized cockpit escape capsule and with a Walter rocket motor. Captured by US troops the Germans were not allowed to install the rocket motor. Test flights un-powered yielded 500 mph and max altitude was projected at 80,000 ft- higher than the U-2 at 79,000 and that was in 1945!!! U-2 not started until 1954- 9 years later!!!

Amazing the technology the Germans were able to produce, way ahead of us. Remember the line from "Dr. Strangelove" in which the US president is comparing the Americans and the Russians for military prowess? He boasted "Our Germans can beat their Germans".

Depends on what area of technology. In space the Soviets got the Draeger spacesuit, the Peenemunde cluster rocket and escape system, the design for an ICBM, and satellites. They were the first to put a sat in space, a dog, a man, a woman, and did the first space walk and later first space station. They spent more time in space than anyone else. They also got a lot of German missile tech and aviation tech, but Stalin hated aviation and would not allow direct copies of German prototypes. However, they got the MiG-15 off the Fw Ta 183, and an Il bomber off the He-343. They experimented with FSW for aircraft and got WIG tech from Lippische's work. Developed the AK-47 from the Stg-44 And RPG from German Panzerfausts plus Saggers from X-7. Soviet bombers got huge turboprop engines from Germans and also attack helos derived from the Fl-282. The US got the lion"s share of captured hardware and the most Intel with millions of documents and most patents. Germany was raped of scientists and knowledge. All modern arms tech is still dominated by TR weaponry- stealth, bunker busters, every missile type, all assault weapons, nerve gas, sub tech, and most of military aviation including helo tech. Many German secret weapons are still classified and compartmentalized. Disc craft until 2020 and what was at Jonastal S.III until 2045!!!
