** One area where German aeronautical development absolutely failed was in the area of strategic bombing. The Luftwaffe was so focused on producing effective fighters and tactical dive-bombers for ''Blitzkrieg'' style assaults that they totally neglected to develop a long-range bomber that could reach distant enemy cities and industrial centers should the war become protracted. Nazi doctrine of prioritizing offense meant that they would outright refuse to adopt any plane that was incapable of dive-bombing, arbitrarily limiting their bombers to a much smaller size than those of their enemies. The US and Great Britain had already developed reliable four-engined heavy bombers by the late 1930, like the B-17, B-24 and Lancaster, and would only improve on them as time went on. German efforts to build an analogue were started too late to overcome the developmental bugs before the tide had decisively turned and would never come up with a true competitor. The absence of such was probably most deeply felt during the invasion of the USSR when the Soviets simply packed up their war production industry and moved it out of bombing range.

** ''Videogame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' also has this. In 1946 alone the Nazis manage to mass-produce their [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horten_Ho_229 experimental stealth jets]] and construct a HumongousMecha known as "The Baltic Eye." It only gets worse as the timeline goes on, and includes robot dogs with MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily (tested against the Russians on the Eastern Front), an improved version of the Baltic Eye called "The London Monitor" (used to put down resistance in London when the Nazis invaded Britain), and smaller but no less dangerous MiniMecha that serve as heavy infantry. It's eventually revealed this massive technological leap was the result of [[spoiler:them discovering and (poorly) reverse-engineering the technology of an ancient SecretSociety of Hebrew scientists, who have spent thousands of years creating technology so advanced [[ClarkesThirdLaw that it seems almost magical]]]].

* ''Lightning'', by DeanKoontz has the Nazis in possession of a working [[spoiler:TimeMachine]], which they intend to use to win WWII by [[spoiler:finding out from our time just what went wrong for them when and changing it]].

* The early PS2 release ''RingOfRed'' was an alternate history where (among other things) HumongousMecha were developed at the tail end of World War II. The game's intro is a well-done series of [[AMechByAnyOtherName AFWs]] spliced into actual WWII footage.

* Who could forget the bonus levels of ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor: Underground'' where you fight Nazis in knight armour (resplendent with their swastika shields), Nazi zombies (or aliens; this was the PS1 so it's hard to tell, although the level title "Rotten to the Corps" in which they reside could point to them being the reanimated dead), and, of course, Nazi Robot SuperSoldiers! You even assemble your own RobotBuddy called Panzerknacker to help you take out the bad guys.
