This design was originally intended to be turbojet powered, but due to
the early unavailability of jet engines, Dr. Lippisch modified this aircraft
to accept a Daimler Benz DB 605 12-cylinder piston engine. The wings were
mounted mid-fuselage and were swept back at a 23.4 degree angle. The main
landing gear retracted inwards and the front gear retracted to the rear.
Intended armament was to be two MG 131 13mm machine guns. Further development
was abandoned when Lippisch designed the P.20.
