Concerning Luft 46 projects.
« on: January 29, 2017, 06:43:15 pm »
Can anyone enlighten me as to the complete list of the Gotha P-60
projects? I've researched for a long time and it seems quite hard to
pin down a complete list. I'm interested because I have three different
versions as 1/72 scale models and I'm not sure which were actually
luft 46 projects and which weren't. AZ models have 3 different versions,
but which are flights of fancy?

P-60 A, P-60 B, P-60 B mit R-Gerat, two-seater P-60 C, two-seater P-60 C mit R-Gerat and three-seater P-60 C. That's it. See attached contents page of report from mid-March 1945. The three-seater P-60 C was drawn up a few days later.

Weren't there different engines though? Wasn't a major design goal that they could be reengined with Jumo, Heinkle-Hirth engine etc. etc. as production allowed?
