Heinkel He.P.1079A Luft '46 Fighter Concept (1944)
About the Design
During WWII, Germany's Heinkel aircraft company developed five fighter planes under the P.1079 designation. The only thing these designs had in common was that they incorporated twin jet engines. The first in the 1079 series was this design, the P.1079A, which featured its power plants on either side of the fuselage, plus a V-shaped tail.
No He-P.1079As were ever produced.
