TYPE: Fighter/Fighter bomber. Project
POWER PLANT: One Junkers Jumo 213T, rated at 2,000 hp, driving four bladed pusher propeller
PERFORMANCE: 520 mph (estimated)
COMMENT: The excellent performance of the Dornier Do 335 Pfeil (Arrow) proceeded to several Dornier designs of pusher type fighters and fighter bombers. Among these is this Do P.247/6 project from autumn 1944. The swept back wing together with a powerful engine promised an excellent performance and the pusher type propeller offered an excellent visibility and allowed the installation of radar antennas for the adoption as a bad weather/night fighter. This furher development was the Dornier Do P.252 but the project was never realized.
