The fighters were to be equipped with two turbojet engines, HeS 011. From the armament on the plane it was possible to install four 30 mm MK 108 cannons in the forward fuselage. AT stories No reliable evidence of the existence of at least one prototype of this machine has been preserved.

Some of the characteristics of the aircraft: wing sweep 45о - 13 m, aircraft length - 9 m, maximum speed - 1015 km / h.
