    Very... imho, I don't feel any WWII single-engine fighter could even mount such a turret, let alone need it... looks great for a post-apocaliptic world setting, but...

    The Bolton-Paul Defiant would disagree, but then, that fighter was shit. So yeah.

    Tbh, I forgot the Defiant... which kinda ilustrates my opinion of it... :(

    Never fear, my "ability" to remember useless trivia like that but forget how you do high-school level geometry isn't something to be envied.

    Here more to seek the opinions of aerospace experts.
    Anyway, the plane above is the Messerschmidt P.0-01, which was designed as part of the Amerika bomber project in '41.
    The planes supposed to have some INSANE characteristics which I HIGHLY doubt, but here they are anyway:

    Strategic bomber, 44,000lb payload with 15,000km range
    Maritime patrol with 44,000lb payload
    Tactical bomber with a RIDICULOUS 110,000lb payload and 2500km range
    Long range reconnaissance aircraft with a 27,000km range
    Strategic transport with 25 ton carrying capacity
    Aerospace denial, with x4 88mm cannons

    In any case, 1 big question - pure flying wings weren't really feasible as usable forms of aircraft due to their strange structure which made them highly uncontrollable until the advent of computerized flying - however, the P.08-01 had a large tailfin, so would this make it stable enough to fly? I don't know enough about the aircraft to say, and I could't really find the answer anywhere else, with the only thing I could really discover was something from the horten brothers about tailfins decreasing the range of pure flying wings.

    While I don't have the creativity to come up with this kind of stuff, I feel like these aircraft would need longer wings and more surface area to generate the amount of lift needed to get those big engines and bulky fuselages airborne. The end result of the German one would basically look like a Bf-110 with a 109's tail.

    Interesting, I think I can draw that.

    Something like that is what the me-110 should have been like.

    My take on the design, taking your suggestions.

    !Me-000.jpg

    I used an experimental Me-109 jet fighter design, extended the tail and fuselage. Will probably do another pic, open to suggestions.

    Cool aircraft, it looks like it gets rid of most of the deficiencies in the Me-110 and the Me-109's atrocious land and characteristics.
    I think it could use a lengthened fuselage for some extra fuel storage, it is an escort fighter. Hermann Goering would approve

    I was thinking of extending the tail some more but I like your idea better.

    A slightly improved version and its British adversary.

    Soviet version of engine wing tip plane.
    I need a name for this type of aircraft, any suggestions welcomed.

    Isn't that a converted Sturmovik? Use that name, still fits.

    I don't mean this particular plane but all planes with engines mounted on the wingtips.
    Pangur suggested Boxer because the two engines resemble fists. I might go with this.
