Long-Range Jet Bomber

This Messerschmitt design of February 1945 was for a long-range bomber. It had a low, swept back wing with four He S011 jet engines in paired nacelles half-embedded in the wing trailing edge and were fed by a common intake on each lower wing surface. The two man crew sat in a tandem arrangement in the nose of the aircraft. A tricycle landing gear arrangement was designed, with the main wheels retracting into the fuselage. 1000 kg (2200 lbs) of bombs could be carried, and the range was 2000 km (1243 miles).
