The quest to find an alternative engine for the Fw 190 in 1942, to replace the troublesome BMW 801 once and for all, included the investigation of a jet solution. Focke-wulf chief designer Kurt Tank wanted a fuselage mounted jet that would blend seamlessly into the existing Fw 190 fuselage and would, like the other engines considered, require minimal alterations.the result was a very odd-looking design by today’s standards. At the time, no one was really sure what a jet-powered aircraft was supposed to look like. The T1 turbojet was designed in-house by Focke-wulf and would have fitted right on to the Fw 190’s nose.thrust would initially come from all around the rear portion of the engine’s cowling, except in front of the cockpit.this was later modified to nozzles venting along the centre of the fuselage beneath the aircraft. The design was set out in a Focke-wulf document dated November 5, 1942, but performance figures were less than stellar compared with those produced by the Me 262 and the project was abandoned.
