Triebflugels in action

The Focke-Wulf Triebflugel is one of the aircraft that appears in Strikers video games. They only appear as enemies in Strikers 1945 and Strikers 1945 II (including it's remake)


The Focke-Wulf Triebflügel or Triebflügeljäger, literally meaning "thrust-wing hunter", was a German concept for an aircraft designed in 1944, during the final phase of World War II as a defence against the ever-increasing Allied bombing raids on central Germany. It was a vertical take-off and landing tailsitter interceptor design for local defense of important factories or areas which had small or no airfields.

The Triebflügel had only reached wind-tunnel testing when the Allied forces reached the production facilities. No complete prototype was ever built.

In Strikers 1945, the Triebflügel is one of the aircraft that produced by CANY.


  • Unlike the other enemy aircraft, the Triebflugel flies vertically.
  • In Strikers 1945 II, the Iron Casket boss launches several Triebflugel enemies to attack the player's aircraft. However, that feature was removed in , where it launches BI-1s instead.
