It seems you have a host of followers, Dan :)! Perhaps after the 2nd volume of "Secret Jets..." you could pursue something on Focke-Wulf B)?

By the way,

a copy of the whole FW archive was transferred to DVL in April 1945,as I know.

Nr. 272 Einmotoriger TL-Jäger mit R-Gerät (twin boom single-jet fighter, sometimes known erroneously as the ‘Flitzer’ dated February 1, 1944)

My dear Dan,

even Flugzeug Classic said it was Nr.272.

Focke-Wulf presented its twin-boom jet fighter design to third parties in February 1944 as the Baubeschreibung Nr. 272 Einmotoriger TL-Jäger mit R-Gerät, and later in July 1944 as Baubeschreibung Nr. 280 Einmotoriger TL-Jäger mit R-Gerät (see attached). But I was mistaken when I stated in Luftwaffe: Secret Jets and on this forum that absolutely no period document ever refers to it as the Flitzer. After several years of searching, I have recently discovered a set of internal company memos which make reference to 'Flitzer' or 'Projekt Flitzer' and are clearly referring to that single-jet design. These date from around May 1944 to September 1944.
The Nr. 272 report was dated February 1944 but memos earlier than May 1944 don't seem to use 'Flitzer'.
