COMMENT: In 1942 Heinkel Aircraft Company was working on concepts for a new multi-purpose aircraft, able to fulfill different operational duties. Seven designs were elaborated that differed in many aspects.
Four designs, proposed as ”Versions I”, were competitors of the Junker Ju 288. He P. 1065 Ia was a two-engine bomber or heavy fighter, powered by two BMW 801E, rated at 1,555 hp each or two Junkers Jumo 222C engines, rated at 2,600 hp each. “Version Ib” was a somewhat different bomber and powered by two Junkers Jumo 222C engines, rated at 2,100 hp each. All designs had tail units with twin fins and rudders. He P. 1065 Ic was a twin-engine fast bomber design, powered by two Daimler-Benz DB 609 engines, rated at 2,270 hp each and conventional tail fin and rudder. The design was forerunner of what was projected as Heinkel He 319 V1.
Heinkel He P. 1065 IIc was an asymmetric low wing airplane, comparable to the Blohm & Voss Bv 141, proposed as a fighter bomber and powered by either BMW 803, rated at 3,500 hp or Daimler-Benz DB 619 engines, rated at 4,540 hp.
Finally, “Version III”, was a further development of the Heinkel He 119 as a fast bomber. He P. 1065 IIIb should be powered by one Daimler-Benz DB 619, rated at 4,450 hp and had a tail unit with twin fins and rudders. Heinkel He P. 1065 IIIc was powered by one Daimler-Benz DB 613, rated at 3,100 hp and had conventional tail fin and rudder. This project should be further developed into Heinkel He 519. None of the seven projects were realized (Ref.: 19)
