was the flitzer actualy proposed for the volksjäger?
Yes, although it was apparently submitted too late to be given serious consideration.

that was the bmw 003 variant?
You've not seen the contemporary drawing which shows the Focke-Wulf Volksflugzeug next to the Einheits-T-L-Jaeger? I'm sure I posted a version of it somewhere hereabouts which shows that the Peterle was also included. If not, yes, Focke-Wulf offered three designs for Volksjaeger - the conventional layout Volksflugzeug either with swept wings or straight and a BMW 003, the Flitzer with BMW 003 (upgradable to the 011 in the future without major fuselage changes, which was the Einheits-T-L-Jaeger), and the PTL-powered Peterle. It was all in vain though, because the Heinkel P 1073 had been chosen as the winner even before the competition got started, much to the annoyance of Richard Vogt, since all reasonably impartial observers thought that his Blohm & Voss P 211 design was better.
