The Dornier Do 335 Pfeil ("Arrow") was a World War II heavy fighter built by the Dornier company. The two-seater trainer version was also called Ameisenbar ("Aardvark"). The Pfeil's performance was superior to other twin-engine designs due to its unique "push-pull" layout and the much lower drag of its two motors. The Luftwaffe was desperate to get the design into operational use, but delays in engine deliveries meant only a handful were delivered before the war ended. French ace Pierre Clostermann claimed the first Allied combat encounter with a Pfeil in April 1945.Leading a flight of four Hawker Tempests from No. 3 Squadron RAF over northern Germany, he intercepted a lone Do 335 flying at maximum speed at treetop level. Detecting the British aircraft, the German pilot reversed course to evade, knowing it could not outmatch the convoy. However, despite the Tempest's considerable speed, the RAF pilots were unable to catch up or even get into firing position. It was truly one of the quickest planes in the air. The book provides a complete modelling guide with numerous profiles, line drawings and photographs. This book is written entirely in German.
