I know that many post war jets used LOTS of German input, data and design teams, with the Mig 15 being virtuallya fully developed Ta 183 and the F-86
Sabre not looking like a P-80 clone solely because of the input from the Messerschmitt team, as well as many others, but a couple of recent (for me)
discoveries have me wondering about some other, less well known ones.
There is the Messerschnmitt P1110 that was illustrated in another thread and its striking resemblance to the SAAB Lansen. Coincidence? Another one is
a Heinkel 'Four Jet Bomber, 1945' which looks almost like a HP Victor with a swastika on the tail, Did HP and SAAB arrive at these aircraft on their
own or did they too get German input I wonder? I must look into this further.
