The Focke-Wulf Fw Triebflügel was a German project for an aircraft designed in 1944, during the final phase of World War Two. It was a vertical take off and landing (VTOL) tail sitter interceptor design intended for local defence of strategically important factories or areas with no runways against the ever increasing allied bombing raids on Germany. The Triebflügel had only reached wind tunnel testing when the allied forces reached the production facilities. No complete prototype was built.
