A German glider tentatively known as the "Merseburg," with an estimated span
of 178 feet, is believed capable of transporting 40 to 50 fully equipped men.
A model, possibly called "Goliath," with span estimated at 270 feet, probably
could accommodate about 140 fully equipped men.
The Junkers Ju-90 transport is reported to have more than twice the
capacity of the Ju-52. It is not new.
