Or Lose a war. With all the money and resources required to build and produce a working prototype and then build them in sufficient numbers , it could leave other parts of army underpowered.

Sufficient numbers? It's like a nuke, if you have one, nobody will resist you. That's not like Me 262, it's invulnerable, at least in that age. Imagine flack 88 range was max 8 km - this attacks from stratosphere!

Well, that is if it works. You cant create a working plane in the first try, not talking about a plane type never ever constructed before. Also, if you only build 1, you wont be able to do any big damage. You might bomb 1 city, then you wold have to return to your Air field to rearm and refuel. You would need at least dozen of them to do any real damage.
Also, if you build 1, what if a system failure happens? Engine failure? Or maybe your payload just explodes? You would lose your advantage, resources.
Murphy's Law, just saying.
Im not saying that the plane is bad or anything, it is just is not worth all the resources.

Wow! Simply amazing how the nazi were so advanced for the time. What is it maximum speed, load and altitude? Also, why it never been built? Too costy, or lack of ambition by hitler?

Imagine thing which can be now invented or build in area 51 and similar placed of others. In 2100 we can perhaps know about that and will be really amazed what we managed to do this time...
