The Fieseler Fi 333 was a prototype transport aircraft developed by Fieseler in 1942, and backed by the Luftwaffe.
The aircraft was to use detachable pods of varying sizes to carry cargo, a system that would allow a rapid turnaround on the ground. The tall, fixed undercarriage featured tandem independently sprung wheels. Power was provided by two 750 kW (1,000 hp) BMW Bramo 323D radial engines.
Three prototypes are believed to have been built.
