In the case of the P.1106 there may be reasons for such a layout with its underslung engine.
but it's a totally different aircraft. For the drawing with the top and side view, I agree with the
caption: It does not make sense !

Well, there is the previously mentioned possible benefit to area-ruling. Even if we set that aside, there are benefits from a very simplistic aerodynamic understanding: The cockpit is a rrelatively low density part of the airplane - moving it to the rear doesn't impact the center of gravity but does increase the drag towards the tail. This would increase the overall stability of the design, and in theory, allow a smaller set of stabilisers. Of course, the benefit would be pretty marginal and the vertical stabiliser might be rendered less effective at controlling the plane as a result. But if you are pushing for every marginal improvement and you can get away with it structurally - it might appeal - initially at least.

It is kindof a shame that it didn't appeal! I liked the HG.III/p.106 hybrid... but I suppose that fictional is fictional!

A big reason for it was to place large fuel tanks right over the CG.
