This project is dated March 1944, when Dr. Lippisch studied several
revolutionary designs, most of which were much ahead of their time.
The P.12 was planned as an experimental delta-wing aircraft powered
with one ramjet engine. Since ramjets need some primary acceleration
to produce thrust, the aircraft would have been launched either from the
carrier aircraft, or with the help of rocket assisted take-off. Landing
should be performed on the belly landing skid and two tip-wing stabilizers, turned downward.
The pilot was seated in a finely blended cabin located above the
Wing area was approximately 12mē, aspect ratio 1.33. Apparantly
no armament was to be fitted.
The project was finally abandoned in favor of the Li.P.13a fighter.
