Messerschmitt P.1110

Messerschmitt P.1110 was the name given to the design of a single-seat jet-propelled fighter the Messerschmitt AG in World War II. The project was based on the tender of the UCL in 1944 after a single-seat fighter with the Heinkel - HeS -011 turbojet, four MK 108 and a top speed of about 1000 km / h

A special feature of the constructive design set the arrangement of the main components dar. So the air intake for the jet engine was the side or arranged in a ring around the airframe. The pilot should sit with the armament front of the engine. This arrangement was groundbreaking and has been adopted in most jet-propelled fighter aircraft of the early postwar period. Because of this streamlined design, the P.1110 was computationally the fastest of all the designs submitted OKL. The swept-back wings corresponded to those of the experimental aircraft Messerschmitt P.1101. For the pilot in the unpressurized cabin an ejection seat was provided.

The draft was rejected together with the proposals of other companies in favor of the Junkers EF 128. This was justified, especially with the long development time that would need this new design.
