Thank you very much. I think what was going on in Austria, especially in 1945, has either been little researched or remains classified.

Bohemia ;) Prague. Also, Eugen Sänger made proposal for supersonic sub-orbital "Amerika Bomber" called Silbervogel, Silver Bird. Quite interresting. Sänger was Czech German and after the dismisal of Silvervogel he worked for Skoda-Kauba.

I would like to know what was going on in the Bohemia-Moravia Protectorate. Especially research at Brno University.

You've already seen it. It's the P 14.

Let the man do it,and after that we can judge.

Let what man do what?

Incidentally, it's unclear whether Sänger actually worked for Skoda-Kauba. It seems more likely that Skoda-Kauba was simply handed his report of 1943 suggesting a ramjet powered fighter (the included sketch looks remarkably like the P 14) and tidied it up into a 'real' project.

Wait, what? Silbervogel is P 14 or something? There seems to be communication error.

No. The 'Silbervogel' is not the P 14. And the name 'Silbervogel' doesn't appear to have been applied until after the war, neither was it called 'Amerika Bomber'. Sänger just calls it 'Raketenbomber' or 'Fernbomber mit raketenantrieb' in the report on that design of August 1944.

These are the known major Sänger works:
Earliest investigation of Lorin drive at the LFA’s Institut für Gasdynamik - report August 1938
Fighter with Lorin drive at the DFS - report October 1943
Rocket bomber (what you call Silbervogel) at the DFS - report August 1944 (based on work carried out between 1937 and 1941)
Me 262 with Lorin drive at the DFS - report January 1945
then the Skoda-Kauba P 14 - report March 1945

The 1938 design is going in Luftwaffe: Secret Projects of the Third Reich. The 1943 design is the top drawing I posted in reply #90.

Hi! It's hard to read aircraft size from the drawing, perhaps.......
P14-01 Span : 7m, Length : 9.85m, Height : 4.5m
P14-02 Span : 7.9m, Length : 9.5m, Height : 4.45m

This would have been a very potent point interceptor. Thank you for posting.

I'm worried about whether this plane will be able to take off safely and reliably.
