The Messerschmitt Me 328 was conceived in 1942 as a cheap and simple high-speed low-level bomber and emergency fighter. Smaller than the He 162, its construction was to be mainly of wood and power was to be provided by a pair of Argus pulsejet engines, similar to those used by the V-l flying bomb. Two versions were proposed, the Me 328A fighter and Me 328
bomber; it was estimated that four Me 328s could be built for every Fw 190 or Me 109 fighter. Gliding trials were made, the aircraft being air-launched from a Dornier 217, but powered trials in 1944 proved disappointing. A further version, the Me 328C, was proposed, to be fitted with a Jumo 004 turbojet. This and a proposed piloted glider-bomb version came to nothing.

Why couldn't they use propeller engines or solid fuel rockets as a low vibration alternative to pulse jets?

Mr Kelly, have you expressed interest in selling your me 328 technical manual? Because if you have, I am willing to pay £200 for such a book.

Messerschmitt 328 is design for point defence fighter and parasite fighter onboard the giant bomber like ju 390,me p.1073,ef 132 the purpose for protecting the larger aircraft and for bombardment and for bombardment isn't kamikaze the pilot is ejected befor impact.

Does anyone have the original sketches or blueprints of this airplan?

I found a technical manual on this plane. It's in excellent condition. It is written in German and contains photographs and sketches. Is there a market for such materials?

Was impossible to use the Me 328 because the engine vibrations were too strong for the wooden structure of this plane . The Argus pulsejets had 300 kg of thrust each and were the same of the Fieseler 103 V-1 flying bombs . Germans wanted to use it as lov-level parasite fighter and selbstopfer bomber .
