This project was dated September 14, 1944 and was an alternative development
to the Bv P.210. Engineer Amtmann utilized the airframe and swept wings
of the P.210. The main structural component was lengthened to serve as
a support for the tail structure. The wing was swept back at 30 degrees.
One BMW 003A-1 turbojet was located in the fuselage rear and exhausted
beneath the tail boom. Armament consisted of two MK 108 30mm cannon in
the fuselage nose. A tricycle undercarriage arrangement was also provided.
This was the first fighter design in the world specifically designed to
take advantage of the aerodynamic properties of the swept wing. The aircraft
design was simple and spared the use of strategic materials, plus it was
maintenance-friendly. Although the design met with positive reactions from
company officials, they were hesitant to make the final decision, and the
project was delayed.
