During the Me 323's production life, the aircraft were improved with different types of engines and weapons, with a maximun speed of 177mph, and a cruising speed of 136mph the aircraft was easy target for faster allied aircraft, and by 1944 the aircraft had disappered from Luftwaffe service.

The Me 323 Gigant employed a primitive fabric-skinned construction, and was somewhat underpowered. The original unpowered Me 321 (intended for an invasion of the British Isles) was superceded by the Me 323, which was eventually equipped with six Gnome-Rhone radials, and offered accomodation for 120 troops, or even an experimemtal 19.5-ton bomb.
