The Focke-Wulf Ta 283 was a German swept-wing, ramjet-powered interceptor aircraft proposal during World War II. The project was developed at the same time as the Focke-Wulf Super Lorin and remained unbuilt before the surrender of Nazi Germany.
Power was to be provided by a Walter HWK rocket engine for takeoff, and two Pabst ramjets. The ramjets were located on the tips of the sharply swept tailplanes and would be used for cruising. The wings were swept at 45° and were mounted low in the fuselage. Armament was to have been two 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 108 cannon.
