The Heinkel He 162, known as the "Volksjager" ( people's fighter), " Spatz" ( Sparrow), or " Salamander" ( incorrectly, because to the whole program was given this code name, and it has been applied to the aircraft itself) was a jet fighter born of desperation. Although the design was put together in weeks, the results was an exceptional aircraft; gifted with agility, economy and speed. The fuselage of the He 162 was a light metal monocoque and the single piece wing was mainly constructed of wood and secure to the aircraft with only four bolts. The typical turned-down wingtips of the aircraft were removed and replaced by standard tips. Power came from a single BMW 003 A-1 " Sturm" turbojet which was set atop the fuselage, aft the cockpit. In early 1945, due to the backlog of BMW engines, consideration was also given to outfitting the He 162 with Argus pulsejets, the engine for the V-1. Thus the He 162 A-10 and A-11 came into being. The A-10 had two Argus As 014 thruster rockets, while the A-11 had the more powerful As 044. An A-10 (factory number M-42), flew at the end of March 1945 in Bad Gandersheim. The problems with the pulsejets as means of propulsion was several; the main issue was the heavy vibration caused by the engine itself. Due to this, further development of the He 162 a-10 was abandoned.
