Blohm & Voss P 209

The Blohm & Voss P 209 was one of a series of single-engined jet fighter design studies. Under development in the latter half of 1944, when the single-engined jet fighter requirement was issued the P 209 was radically revised to meet the deadline but was not taken further by the RLM.

in order to meet the deadline for the new requirement, Blohm & Voss drew on the P211 which had meanwhile been rejected for the Volksjäger requirement. It proved a radically different design with a conventional tail mounted on a boom extending backwards above the engine exhaust. In a major innovation, the wing of the P 209.02 was swept forwards.

The design was submitted for the 1-TL-Jäger programme but was not taken forward. Circumstantial evidence suggests that concern was expressed over the location of the tailplane too close to the jet exhaust
