This was another variation of the P.1110 design. The design was of a "duck"
(Ente) configuration, that is, small wings (or canards) in front with the
larger wing to the rear. This was felt would allow good pitch and lateral
stability for low-speed flight characteristics. The air intakes for the
single HeS 011 turbojet were located on the fuselage sides, much like the
Me P.1110/I. The cockpit was located in the extreme forward fuselage and
four MK 108 30mm cannon were located to the sides of the cockpit. Messerchmitt
dropped this design in favor of the more conventional P.1110.
