In January 1945, the Messerschmitt Project Bureau began work on the P.1111.
The design was for a tailless aircraft with the wings swept back at 45
degrees, being a near-delta shape. Each wing held three unprotected fuel
tanks with a total of 1500 liters (330 gallons). There was a single sweptback
vertical fin and rudder. The cockpit was pressurized, fitted with an ejection
seat and had a fairing extending to the base of the fin. The armament consisted
of four MK 108 30mm cannonwith 100 rounds each, two in the wing roots and
two in the nose.
