Project BV P.178 was the first asymmetric designed jet fighter in the history of human aviation. It was developed with a Dr. Vogt design. This jet was the first three landing gear design and had a wingspan of 12 meters with a 10.8 meters long fuselage. The right main wing was equipped with a Jumo-004B turbo jet engine. It could carry 500-1000 kg level bombs or other heavy weapons in the main body below the plug point. . Two solid fuel rocket engine nozzles extended from the rear of the fuselage to be used in take offs or to pull out of dives by providing additional power for aircraft. The nose had MG151 15mm guns on both sides. In addition to the basic bombing type, there were many development types.
Because of the unique design and late stage of the war scarcity, the project was not approved by the RLM and stayed on the drawing board.

This product is the daytime interceptor model from the BV P.178 family, equipped with an MK-214 50mm cannon.
