the first to produce operational jet engines during WWII.

took part in a few Luftwaffe combat operations - He.162
Besides the pure engine R&D work, the company was res-
ponsible for several "hi-tech" jet aircraft designs - both fighters
and bombers. All of them were designed around three BMW
turbojet and turboprop engines: BMW 003, BMW 018 and
The P.IV was to be powered by a single .003 unit
(800kp), had a single tail boom and one fin, the armament of 2xMk.103 guns was to be placed in the fuselage.
