The first of five designs, the He. P.1078A was designed as a nightfighter.
The crew of two sat back-to-back in the cockpit which was located near
the nose. The wings were swept back 35 degrees and were mounted mid-fuselage,
with two HeS 011 turbojets located in the wing roots. There was a V-tail
and armament was to be four MK 108 30mm cannon.
