The Fieseler Fi 333 was a prototype transport aircraft developed by Fieseler, and backed by the Luftwaffe. The aircraft was to utilise detachable pods of varying sizes to carry cargo, a system that would allow a rapid turnaround on the ground.[1] The very tall braced undercarriage was made unretractable so that the fuselage would be able to take the strain of the heavy cargo.[2]

The cargo pod system was tested on several other Fieseler and Messerschmitt aircraft, but shortly after these tests the project was cancelled.[3]
