During the second World War the Gothaer Waggonfabrik A.G. Company was mainly engaged with the construction of aircrafts designed by other aircraft manufacturing companies. The GO. 242 is one of few aircrafts entirely designed and constructed by the Gothaer Waggonfabrik A.G. Company during the above period. It is a large mixed-cargo transport glider caracterized by an original double tail boom structure. TheGO. 242 glider, in its two best known versions A-1 and B-1, that differed in the landing unit only, was towed off by the Junkers Ju.52/3m or by the Heinkel He. 111-Z, the latter being obtained by combining two He.111. Both model GO. 242 and model GO. 244 were used on African, Russian and European fronts as weil as in training schools.
