Two proposals were accepted for construction as the Messerschmitt Me.321 Gigant and the Junkers Ju.322 Mammut. The Ju.322 was to be built out of non-strategic materials, using all-wooden construction. It carried almost all cargo inside the giant wing.

The glider was highly unstable under tow but, after being released, it stabilised but landed in a field from which it took two weeks to tow back to the launch airfield by tanks. Although design improvements were planned, the Luftwaffe ordered the Ju.322 project cancelled in May 1941, considering it an inherently poor design
