Real World InformationEdit
The Horten H.IX, RLM designation Ho 229 (or Gotha Go 229 for extensive re-design work done by Gotha to prepare the aircraft for mass production) was a German prototype fighter/bomber initially designed by Reimar and Walter Horten to be built by Gothaer Waggonfabrik late in World War II. It was the first flying wing to be powered by jet engines.

Gotha is a fighter/bomber airship with a manta ray shape. It possesses stealth capabilities, staying invisible before the fight begins.
Gotha first appears as a blimp, breaking out of it once it's destroyed. It will then materialize, hovering above the player and creating after images. It mainly attacks with it's jet engines, which it can position to shot both below and above. Gotha will also constantly release homing blue spheres which can be destroyed.
