You're not going to get a supersonic *anything* powered by cheap pulsejets.

Whoa. That's not true. The pulsejets could be used for climbing to height and then they, along with the wings, could be jettisoned. It would probably require a larger airframe to get high enough, but supersonic speeds could be obtained in a prolonged dive.

By that reasoning, one can claim manned supersonic flight powered by *balloons.* However, one must use common sense at some point.

Excellent posts, Justo - as ever.
At the risk of going slightly off-topic, my understanding is that the origins of the Me 328 / Me P.1079 project lay in a study for a heavy bomber (P.1073A) which was to carry three parasite jet fighters (P.1073B).  Below is the only image I can find that shows both the P.1073A carrier and (hard to spot at bottom right) the P.1073B parasite.  (I also attach a three-view of the P.1073B.  Both images are quite easy to find though.)
All best.

I'd like to see a line drawing of P.1073A, but without results...

Sorry no more images of P.1073A in my files

The first pictures is the "c" version. Is it from real reference or just reconstructed?

Is the swept wing version fake?

I found this original photo in an abum, on a museum warehouse shelf in U.S.
According to the German museum that purchased the album from me, they believed that the album had been compiled by someone who worked on experimental aircraft for the Luftwaffe during WWII. They assume he brought this abum of  experimental aircraft to U.S. after the war, to show projects he worked on, or was familiar with, for employment purposes. Much of the album was of rockets and missiles and many were marked "Geheim" (secret) and had circa 1943 dates and Luftwaffe stamps on the backs. Anyone have any data on this Me 163 with external rocket engines? (I assume there is another one on the other side?)

Bonjour

It's not a Me 163 ,but an early prototype of the Me 328 with two Argus VSR 7 pulso-jets
Cheers

Nice picture, but it has a wrong marking.
It shows one of the 7 prototypes of the German parasite aircraft/suicide aircraft Messerschmitt Me 328 B, powered by two Argus pulsejets.

Thank you both for correcting this. It now makes me wonder if the hand-written caption may be for the photo that was above this photo in the album, and not for this one.

Is there any more information about that "star trek" version of me 328? Because all the references  I can found are about the V1/V2 version which it's in the drawing the  "A" version

Regards
