Oblique-wing German aircraft projects of World War II

Post by Cantankerous » 01 Apr 2021 02:01

Two aircraft designs with oblique (scissor) wings were conceived in Nazi Germany during World War II, the Blohm und Voss P.202 and Messerschmitt P.1101/XVIII-108. More info on these designs is available at these links:

http://www.luft46.com/mess/mep1109.html (incorrectly labeled P.1109 at the link, even though the P.1101/XVIII-108 design was conceived in the summer of 1944 and the P.1109 designation seems to have come after the allocation of P.1107 and P.1108 designations to Messerschmitt jet bomber projects in early 1945, meaning that the association of P.1109 with the oblique-wing Messerschmitt design in some sources is erroneous)
