This project was dated September 14, 1944 and was an alternative development to the Bv P.210. The powerplant was one BMW 003A-1 turbojet which was located in the fuselage rear and exhausted beneath the tail boom. The wing was swept back at 30 degrees. Armament consisted of two MK 108 30mm cannon in the fuselage nose.
This was the first fighter project in the world specifically designed to take advantage of the aerodynamic properties of the swept wing. The design was simple and spared the use of strategic materials, plus it was maintenance-friendly.

Span: 8.4m (27' 7") Length: 7.1m (23' 3.7") Max. Speed: 1020 km/h (633 mph)
