Post subject: Orlogsværftet J.1 Jager Naval Fighter  Reply with quote   (Liked by:0)  Like this post
There was to be both a fighter and a light bomber type.  It was developed by the Danish Navy before the German invasion.  I am just asking for general help with stats.... It would have used a Merlin engine and Madsen 20mm cannons.

As WWII was approaching, Denmark’s air defences were based on outdated biplanes like the Hawker Nimrod. Despite of the Labour government cutting funding to the military, there were some developments. First and foremost, Denmark bought the rights from Fokker, to build the G1 Twin-Boom fuselage heavy fighter. Orders were also about to be signed for the Macchi M.200 fighter. The Danish government also showed interest in the Heinkel He-114, but that didn’t work out, for obvious reasons. Licenses had, however, been acquired for production of the Fairey p. 4/34, as well as the Fokker D.XXI. Both were under construction when the Germans invaded.

People at Orlogsværftet (Naval Dockyard) had, in all secrecy, started the design of an indigenous all-metal monocoque fighter aircraft named the J.1 Jager. The initiative came too late, and the J.1 Jager aircraft was never built. After extensive research, I have found additional information about the J.1 Jager, including some construction drawings.

It turns out that there were in fact TWO indigenous aircraft being designed, when the Germans invaded Denmark. Both aircraft had the same spitfire-like fuselage, but with two different wing configurations. The first configuration was pretty standard for a fighter aircraft of its time. The other wing configuration was a gull-wing arrangement similar to the one used on the Stuka. With that configuration, the aircraft would have been ideal for a light (dive) bomber. It is interesting to see that the designers had both type of aircraft in mind, but due to time pressures decided to go for a common fuselage.

The J1 Jager aircraft would have had an all-metal monocoque fuselage very similar to that of a spitfire, but with a very long deHavilland-like motor cowl. The aircraft would have had retractable landing gear and a nice smooth aerodynamic shape – a real fighter. Nothing is said about the engine, but the outline drawn unmistakably looks like a Rolls Royce Merlin. With a proposed wing-span of only 8.75 m, or about 75% the size of the Spitfire, this would have been a really small, and nimble aircraft. In fact, it might just have been the aircraft with the highest power/weight ratio of all the aircraft available at the start of the war. Obviously at this early stage of the design, details like exhaust stacks and air coolers were not known. With a big-ass exhaust stacks on each side of the cowl and a belly-mounted cooling radiator, this aircraft would have really looked the part.
