[1] described Focke-Wulf himself all "flyers" designs only as TL-hunters . [2] The draft project on the P. IV (designation system after [1] )-based work on the P. VII were largely completed in March 1944 and led to the creation of a dummy made ​​of wood. In addition to the jet engine was starting to support the use of an additional rocket engine ( Walter HWK 109-509 ) provided. The air inlet of the main engine was changed from the P.
