The line of similar asymmetric designs - P.177,
P179, P194, BV.237, etc. - is one of the most interesting in the
output of the Blohm und Voss company. The P.179 was probably
the smallest and lightest one, powered with one BMW.801D
engine. A single bomb was to be carried under the nacelle,
the armament of two MG.151/20 guns was
housed also in the nacelle.
