This was the second design (Entwurf II) for the He P.1079B all-weather
heavy fighter. The wings were swept back sharply and contained six fuel
tanks. Two He S 011 jet engines were located in the wing roots and were
fed by intakes in the wing leading edges. A crew of two sat back-to-back
in the cockpit, and armament was to be four MK 108 30mm cannon. No evidence
has been found that the P.1079 projects were ever submitted to the RLM,
but it is known that designer Siegfried Günter, along with his engineers
Eichner and Hohbach, were working on these designs under U.S. supervision
during the summer of 1945.
