History: In January of 1946, Germany had just begun to push the Allied forces back from the Fatherland. In response to the recent victories, the Luftwaffe high command demanded a new Schnellbomber to replace the Me-262 variant. Messerschmitt set to work and within a month had a flying prototype of the P.1123, with the designation being J-0. After a few test flights, all of which were incredible successes, the Luftwaffe ordered 150 of he new aircraft. Within the next few months, over 300 of the P.1123 J-1 aircraft were produced and in active service. The J-1 had a top speed of almost 800 miles per hour (1,287 km/h), making it almost impossible to catch. P.1123 J-1 aircraft are credited with destroying at least fifteen enemy aircraft (all of which being bombers) and countless numbers of tanks, armored cars, and other soft targets. Eventually it was replaced by the newer Focke-Wulf models, with the last J-1 being pulled from service in 1971.

    Sorry, @808REKT, but I have to bug out of the challenge. I'm so sorry! Me being in high school meant that I didn't have enough time to make the plane, and homework kept me busy after school. You can have the win if you want to, FYI!

    @DestinyAviation but I think we can both agree that the F-20 has the better flight model

    I love the looks of the plane. You made it look very smooth and also gave me a love of these German Planes. Good Job @DestinyAviation
