This was a revised design of the Daimler Benz Project
"A" carrier aircraft and parasite jet bomber. The wing was
straight with a taper on the outer wing leading edge, and featured pronounced
anhedral on the inner wing sections and dihedral outboard of the landing
gear. Six DB 603 piston engines provided the power, four pulling and two
pushing. The high, fixed landing gear was located beneath the outboard
engine nacelles, and had three wheels partially enclosed in the landing
gear legs. The high, fixed landing gear and the anhedral gave the proper
clearance to mount the parasite bomber beneath the carrier aircraft. The
bomber featured sharply swept back wings and tailplanes, the latter also
having pronounced dihedral and twin fins and rudders, much like the Henschel
132 (see three-view drawing below). Power was provided by a single, huge
Daimler Benz DB S 06 jet engine (mounted on the top centerline of the fuselage),
which was to supply 12930 kg (28446 lbs) of thrust. A crew of two sat in
the pressurized cockpit that was located in the extreme nose of the bomber.
30000 kg (66000 lbs) of bombs was the projected bomb load.
