I understand it is not supersonic !!
But what about the armament!
Wingknut said:I was also put off when I looked up the model-company responsible for the conversion kit and found that they offer a conversion for a "Heinkel He162Z Volkzwilling". Maybe I shouldn't stick my neck out too far but surely a "Zwillng" He-162 is fictitious? (The only references I can find seem to class it as a "What if?" modeller's project.)

Wingknut said:Excellent posts, Justo - as ever.
At the risk of going slightly off-topic, my understanding is that the origins of the Me 328 / Me P.1079 project lay in a study for a heavy bomber (P.1073A) which was to carry three parasite jet fighters (P.1073B). Below is the only image I can find that shows both the P.1073A carrier and (hard to spot at bottom right) the P.1073B parasite. (I also attach a three-view of the P.1073B. Both images are quite easy to find though.)

Orionblamblam said:By that reasoning, one can claim manned supersonic flight powered by *balloons.* However, one must use common sense at some point.
Jemiba said:The drawing has the caption "Complete model with base plate, railway embankment and take-off trolley".
So I would assume, it was meant to test launching the Me 328 directly from railway tracks. Haven't heard
of this method before, but it seems logical.
