COMMENT: The P.1079/13 was one of several Messerschmitt designs to meet the Luftwaffe’s late-War request for a small, cheap, single-seat target-defense interceptor. This design included two wing-mounted Lorin ramjets or conventional turbojet engines. For take-off a trolley-launch system was provided and solid fuel rockets were used for acceleration until the ramjets will work. After mission the aircraft landed on a skid. No further details are known.
