The 190 V-15 was tested with the Messerschmitt P8 reversible pitch propeller.

Unfortunately this DVL report is missing the photos

DVL testing of blown flap for messerschmitt, dated December 1943

Its noted that the wing structure required near no modification, with the air being forced into the area aft of the spar.

Where the Me P1099 come from?

As you correctly assumed, it was mainly based on the Me 262, it's even covered by Wiki:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messerschmitt_P.1099

Where does it come from?

The artist is clearly recognisable on that picture (user name here is "PlanesPicture") and the type is
already mentioned here https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,6994.msg59903.html#msg59903

what was the RA 55?

"RA 55" stands for "Raketenautomat 55", meaning automatic launcher for 55 mm rockets, drawing
and description to be found here http://www.germanluftwaffe.com/archiv/Dokumente/ABC/f/Flakraketen/R4M%20Orkan/R4M%20Orkan.html and mention on several other sites.

It's absolutely ok to ask, but some basic research, like using Google or the search function here
should be done before, as recommended by the forum rules !

"God No, America Does Not Need Mobile Nuclear Missile Launchers"

The New START treaty between the United States and Russia, which went into force in 2011, restricts deployed mobile launchers to ICBM bases
a nd nondeployed launchers to military production, repair and storage facilities. Which, in the event of a nuclear war, negates mobile
launchers’ mobility advantage. It would take hours to disperse the slow-moving vehicles away from their bases as the nukes begin flying.

This is not accurate.  From the Office of Treaty Compliance

There are no restrictions on where deployed mobile launchers of ICBMs may be located. These launchers may leave their basing areas for field
deployments, similar to the deployments from their bases of ballistic missile submarines and heavy bombers. Because mobile ICBMs are
considered survivable when deployed in the field and therefore stabilizing, their unhampered operation while deployed in the field is permitted.

a Drawing on page 71 "Jet Planes of the Third Reich" vol.1 Manfred Griehl for the armored canopy.
As for Me262 designations, Me262D-1 was alternate designation of the '262 C-2b, '262 E-1 alternate designation for '262A-1a/U4 (50mm cannon), and '262E-2 was to have RA55 automatic rocket dispensers, loaded with R4M rockets.
what was the RA 55?

Say 300 launchers each with 5-10 harden launch hangars. Keep moving the launchers around. Now the Russians would require 1500-3000 warheads to take all of them out, all while being limited to 1550 under the treaty.

Under New START, the hardened launch hangers would each count towards the total number of ICBM launchers.
That and on-site inspections makes preserving the probability of location uncertainty doubtful.
