Interesting Design Concept

Recommended Posts

Obviously inspired by some of the concept drawings from Blohm & Voss.  Looks like a pure interceptor, made to bore in and tear up bomber formations.

Im thinking- too much weight for the wing area- but interesting.

I tend to agree, with that high a wing loading maneuverability would suffer. And why on earth add the weight and complexity of contra-rotating props on the pusher??

 

Does look pretty neat though.

That's why!

As to wing loading and maneuverability - think of the F-104 Starfighter.

From the looks of the armament under his wings, he could be a lot lighter in 40-50-seconds.     GW
