The Focke-Wulf Super Lorin was a German jet interceptor project. Designed towards the end of World War II by engineer Heinz von Halen, the project remained unbuilt before the surrender of Nazi Germany. The Focke-Wulf Super Lorin remained only a factory design exercise, and never received an RLM airframe number.
Not much is known about this project except that it was developed at the same time as the Focke-Wulf Ta 283. It was based on the Focke-Wulf Ta 183, with the same low swept wings at 45°, mounted on the mid-fuselage.
The aircraft would have a wingspan of 7.6 m and a length of 11.6 m. Power was to be provided by a rocket engine for takeoff and two Lorin ramjets located on the tips of the sharply-swept tailplane, which would be used for cruising. Armament was to have been two 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 108 cannon.
