The Messerschmitt P.1106 was an intended improvement to the Messerschmitt P.1101.[1]

History[edit]

The Messerschmitt P.1106 went through several redesigns; the first version had a T-tail with cockpit faired into the vertical stabilizer, the later design having a V-tail with the cockpit moved slightly forward. In both cases the wings were swept back at 40 degrees. The planned powerplant was a Heinkel HeS 011 turbojet engine, and armament was to be two 30 mm MK 108 cannons.

The project was abandoned since the performance of the P.1101 had not been improved on, and the 1106 cockpit had poor visibility.[2]
