The Messerschmitt P.1092 was a jet aircraft project of the Messerschmitt AG.
Under the Project Number P.1092 very many designs have been combined for a one-or two -engined aircraft for different purposes. Were the designs were initially still based on the Messerschmitt Me 262 frequently twin engine, all the later designs were designed from 1943 as a single-engine fighter aircraft. The P.1092 project was the technological preliminary draft of the later -built Messerschmitt P.1101.
The relevant draft P.1092 XVIII/44 or 45, which was calculated in detail, the aircraft had been designed as a cantilever mid -wing monoplane of all-metal construction with retractable tricycle frame, swept-back wings and a jet engine. Further developed variants of this design were designated as A and B P.1092. The difference between these two is the larger of B variant span. Furthermore, it was developed in collaboration with Alexander Lippisch a variant without tail unit similar to the Messerschmitt Me 163, which was referred to as P.20.
The design of the P.1092 was the basis for the French post-war experimental aircraft Arsenal VG -70.
