This rocket-engined fighter was initially a development of the
Me 163, but retained no more than a configurational similarity.
It began life as the Me 163D, was then moved to Junkers as the
Ju 248, and then renamed again Me 263. Compared with the Me 163,
tha Me 163 had a larger fuselage, wheeled landing gear and a new
rocket engine with a 'cruise chamber'. One built. There is no
evidence that the Me 263 ever made a powered flight.

the bubble canopy very similiar to MiG-15
The Mk 108 are too short range in my opinion at such speeds.
The Mk 103 is better if the 8' length could somehow be accommodated. Otherwise 4 or more MG 151 20-mm cannon would do. Or both! Heck! Why not? 5 guns may slow it down to what? 500 mph?
In a www.google.com my friend
I search blueprint of Me 263. Thanck
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
