DVL jet fighter :o! According to Kay, DVL was working on a turbojet of it`s own. Was this design meant for it?

The type of turbojet isn't specified. It's more about the aerodynamics - when you read it, you'll see what I mean.

Is the big cover illustration a variation of the Messerschmitt P.1079 ?

I was, frankly, stunned to discover the 11 or 12 different versions of the P 15 that Lippisch sketched out before binning them all and deciding that the P 15 should be a 'bitsa' aircraft instead.

Why missing? The DVL Rammer is a known project.

Of course very great work,

Luftwaffe: Secret Designs is not a comprehensive collection of anything, nor was it ever intended to be. It's a selection of little known or previously unknown designs upon which I felt I had more or new details to offer.
I should tell you that I have nearly enough material for another volume in the same vein if the demand for it is there. And I if it is, I won't be including the DVL rammer in that one either, I'm afraid.

Please do publish more!

Dan, do you have something on the Arado proposal for a radial engined fighter, tendered by Rüdiger Kosin around 1938?
