The Focke-Wulf Ta 283 was a German swept-wing ramjet-powered interceptor aircraft during World War II. The project was developed at the same time as the Focke-Wulf Super Lorin and remained unbuilt before the surrender of Nazi Germany.


Power was to be provided by a Walter HWK rocket engine for take-off and two Pabst ramjets. The ramjets were located on the tips of the sharply swept tailplanes and would be used for cruising. The wings were swept at 45° and were mounted low in the fuselage. Armament was to be two 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 108 cannons.[1]
