I would assume it's an A-8, since that's what the drawing title declares. Plus--I can think of no reason why you'd select a "D" model over an "A" for this job.

why that nose for the project II with SH 3000.
To trigger the detonation of the explosive charge at the right time.
This Ta-154 is a "kamikaze", suicide drone to crash on ships or other high-value targets.
It is not exactly a kamikaze--the pilot was intended to eject prior to detonation, as shown in the drawing just above. The nose shape itself indicates a Mistel-type shaped charge warhead with a long, stand-off fuse to insure that the charge explodes far enough from the target to insure maximum penetration.

As I understand it, the pilot would not eject from the FW-190, but "jettison" the Ta-154 which would go on to crash onto the bridge or ship or whatever. Then he flies back with the FW-190.
That's why I wrote "the Ta-154  is a kamikaze drone" --only the Ta-154 , not the whole Mistel.

The ejection scheme you describe is that of the Pulkzerstörer variant, anti-bomber-formation. In a Pulkzerstörer, the pilot would be at altitude and able to eject.
In a Mistel, after setting the course into the ground target, he would be too low.
