Hi,


I found this strange concept for fighter aircraft patent,created by Fritz Gabriel,,the two airplanes
are odd,but the V-shape design was so weird.

Dear Hesham,

I don't thinks those are fighters in the modern sense of the word.

The pictures suggest that the patent is about optimising the fields of fire for defensive gunners (i.e. relevant to bombers, recon, or transports).


P.S.
Made me think of this: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,7594.msg167735.html#msg167735

The German term "Kampfflugzeug" is used in most cases for "bomber", but sometimes
(especially in non-aviation publications) it generally stands for "combat aircraft"/"military aircraft".

That could be, the Left design on pic feature same fuselage but different position of two propellors at wings
while BV P.163.01 fighter bomber, feature the two motors in the fuselage with counter rotating propellors in nose of aircraft.
