The Focke-Wulf Super Lorin was a proposed German jet interceptor project. Designed towards the end of World War II.
The Super Lorin was based on the Focke-Wulf Ta.183, with similar mid-fuselage positioned wings swept at 45°.
The rocket and turbojet would provide enough initial velocity to start the ramjet engines which cannot produce thrust at zero or low airspeed. Number built: None.
