History
The Schnellbomber Ia / Aufclärer Ia was one of many projects based on the advanced (by the WWII standard) Me-262 jet. The main idea of this version was to increase the poor range of the first jet planes by fitting as many fuel tanks as possible without substantial shift in the aircraft's center of gravity while the fuel is consumed during the flight. The solution was found in the new cockpit location - in the nose of the aircraft. This also gave an excellent view to the pilot, but required ninety degrees rotation of the front wheel leg as the gear was retracted to fit in the restricted wheel well. A small RATO rocket was to provide additional power during take off of the heavy aircraft.
