In 1945 Heinkel began development of a bomber which was propelled by four jet engines.
This bomber has the layout of the later Victor bomber used by the RAF, a delta wing with a T shaped tail.
This bomber was capable to reach long distance targets I believe even targets into the US.
I have a very poor microfilm blueprint scan of the Blohm und Voss P.173.02 long range bomber.
From what I can make out it is a six engined bomber that shares the wings and tail of the BV 238 seaplane.
Does anyone have any good drawings or information on this project?
I'll try to make as clean...
