The DFS 331 was a transport glider prototype developed as a collaboration between DFS and Gotha. The glider was designed by Dr Hans Jacob who has worked on the earlier DFS 230. Intended as a medium transport glider it addressed many of the issues with the earlier DFS 230. The visibility from the cockpit was good with the entire nose being glazed and the body was very wide allowing it to carry light Flak guns and light military vehicles. The single prototype was built and flown in 1941.
