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.sgeorges4 said:that was the bmw 003 variant?
the FW P.0310239-01,P.0310239-02 & P.0310239-10,is that right ?.

There is no evidence of any further designs. All the notes and calculations, over a period of several months, refer to just the tailless and conventional layouts. It's not impossible that there were other drawings in the sequence but my feeling is that the numbers are done that way to avoid appearing to give one design prominence over the other - if one had been '-01' and the other '-02' you might think that less importance had been attached to '-02' during the study. The issue of conventional v tailless layout was very contentious at the time.Thank you my dear Dan,
and I speak generally,do you think there was a series between 0310 239-01 and 0310 239-10 ?,I mean from
-02 to -09 !,but still unknown ?.
Nice find! Are there any more sheets than that? There appear to have been two versions of Baubeschreibung Nr. 238 and you have bits from both of them there. The first sheet is from the version concerning an aircraft with four BMW 803s whereas the second sheet is from the version about a bomber with four BMW 801s. I have the full version of the latter, the full title of which is Fernkampfflugzeug "H" mit 4 x BMW 801 - Motoren. It's dated April 29, 1941, and the three-view drawing shows a very similar looking aircraft but with a slightly different cockpit arrangement.Funny how a document from the Air Department in Wright Field found its way into a german archive... I discovered it by doing some research on completly other topics. The document must be from 1941/42. Here is the Focke-Wulf Fernkampfflugzeug with 4 BMW-803 engines. Could the big load in the bombbay be the proposed version of the german 5t-bomb?
Athpilot's second image, FW_02, shows the opening page from the 801-powered "H" version of No. 238. I'll publish the full three-view of the "H" in the reworked version of my Luftwaffe: Secret Bombers bookazine, due out early next year (and try and get the images a bit bigger too!). Like the September '41 design, the "H" also has a detailed side view showing the cockpit arrangement. There are some other drawings showing the undercarriage retraction process as well.Thank you : I had never seen a picture of the "H" before ...Please , could you show us the 3-views ?
BTW , I think , the athpilot post showed only the 1/9/1941 No238 ...
