Messerschmitt Projekt "Wespe"

          This late-war Messerschmitt project "Wespe" (Wasp) is mostly unknown, and information on it is incomplete. Two seperate fuselages were designed for the Wespe":

Both designs used a tricycle landing gear arrangement, with the main gear retracting inwards from the wing and the front gear retracting forwards. No armament was specified, but at this stage in the war two MK 108 30mm cannon would probably have been fitted.
