History
The idea of a little "parasite" fighter carried on board a big bomber and intended to defend it from the enemy interceptors was studied in such leading aircraft design countries as the USA (XP-85 Goblin), the USSR (project by Myasishchev) and Germany - Me.P.1073, but the latter project was dated much earlier - August 1940. The Me P.1073 was actually a two aircraft type project. The first - P.1073 A was a huge 128 ton transatlantic bomber with 63m wing span, powered with eight Jumo-223 engines. This monster was to carry 6,000 kg of bombs up to 16,000km. The defensive armament included three parasite jet fighters with folding wings, armed with two 20mm guns. This small plane was called P.1073 B.
