Messerschmitt Me P.1092/4

          The Me P.1092 design was further refined with the P.1092/4 design. The fuselage remained similar to that of the Me P.1092/3, but the cockpit was moved to the extreme forward fuselage which afforded the pilot a much better view. As in the previous design, the wing was swept back at 18 degrees. The wing, tail and control systems were mostly borrowed from the Me 262 design. The same air intake and turbojet remained from the previous Me P.1092/3 design. Although the cockpit now took up much of the space in the nose where the weapons were mounted previously, there was still room for four MK 108 30mm cannon; these were located further aft on the fuselage sides.
