Hi everybody

I am searching for every Information about this Project.
What about the armament? (pure rammer, RZ65 Rockets or Sprengstoffträger).
http://www.luft46.com/misc/zepfpf.html
What about the Pilots Position in the Aircraft, could the Pilot eject?
Thanks in advance

Dear Moin ,

With all respect , put internet sources are not the most dependable sources of information
about such an 'esotheric' subject like- End of WW II German projected designs.

You will find much more profound info in a few good books about this theme.

For example : Die Deutschen Raketenflugzeuge 1935-1945
Joachim Dressel/Manfred Griehl-Motorbuch Verlag-Germany
and : The 'Luftwaffe Secret Projects' series . 3vols.
Dieter Herwig & Heinz Rode -Midland Counties Publ. England.
to name a few.

Good luck.

Moin,

I agree with lark. Luftwaffe Secret Projects are excellent volumes.

Two more:

Reject that:

http://www.amazon.com/HITLERS-MIRACLE-WEAPONS-9-Unconventional/dp/1874622620/ref=pd_sim_b_img_5

That's not a serious source (and really expensive) :mad:

What kind of misinformation does it contain? Perhaps a "anti-disinformation" thread would be in order?

We are working seriously on it. Look at this:

Hi, the Fliegende Panzerfaust was a rocket-powered design meeting the demand for a low-cost aircraft in a very-short-range interceptor role. It was a parasite aircraft meant to be towed behind a Messerschmitt Bf 109G for which it had a special long nose. Powered by six Schmidding SG 34 rocket engines, three on each side on the rear half of the fuselage, the Fliegende Panzerfaust was a small plane with a v-tail, a wingspan of 4.5 m and a length of 6.0 m.

This Zeppelin-built aircraft would have been released upon reaching combat altitude above the enemy bomber fleet. Shortly before contact with the combat box below it would ignite its six solid-fuel rocket engines, attacking the target bomber by firing two 73 mm RZ 65 air-to-air missiles at an extremely close range. The front half of the aircraft which had the pilot lying in a prone position in the cockpit would then split from the other half. Both parts would land separately with parachutes, being later retrieved and reused. Owing to the extreme risks for the pilot inherent in its operation this aircraft is sometimes referred to as a suicide weapon.
