This project dates from May 20, 1942, and was designed as a high-speed
tailless bomber by Dr. Hermann Wurster. The wings were swept back at approximately
33 degrees. A Daimler Benz DB 606 piston engine (basically, two DB 601
engines joined side-by-side) that developed 2700 horsepower was located
immediately behind the cockpit, buried within the fuselage. It drove the
rear pusher propeller by means of an extension shaft, which ran beneath
the single fin and rudder. The fin extended below the fuselage to provide
a bumper to prevent the rear pusher propeller from striking the ground.
A tricycle landing gear arrngement was chosen, the main gears retracted
outward and the tail wheel was also retractable. The pilot sat under a
small bubble canopy, and the fuselage front was also glazed. An internal
bomb bay was provided, no mention was made of defensive armament. This
project was not realized, due to the success of the Me 410 program and
the unproven extension shaft for the propeller.
