Arado TEW 16/43-23

     This fighter dates from 1943, and was to be of an all-metal construction. It featured swept-back wings, and two He S 011 turbojets were mounted beneath the wings. The fuselage contained three fuel tanks which were located behind the cockpit. A single fin and rudder was fitted with the tailplanes having a small amount of sweep also. The main landing gear rotated 90 degrees before being retracted forwards into the wing. As per the Ar TEW 16/43-13, a spherical tire was chosen for the front landing gear. The cockpit was located in the forward part of the fuselage, and armament consisted of a single MG 151/15 15mm machine gun and two MG 213/20 20mm cannon, all located in the nose beneath the cockpit. This aircraft did not get out of the preliminary design phase; instead, design and production was concentrated on the Ar 234.
