Wilhelm "Willy" Messerschmitt was born in 1898 in Frankfurt am Main. Son of Baptist Ferdinand Messerschmitt and his second wife Anna Maria. From 1906 he lived in Bamberg, where his parents owned a cellar.

Already at 10 years of age built models of airplanes and later, even a glider, with which tried to fly with friends. At age 13 he met Frederick Harth, a pioneer of gliders, who had a decisive influence on his life.

In 1914, Harth joined the army. During this period Willy continued to develop one of Harth's designs, the S5 glider. After completing high school in 1917, Messerschmitt served in the First World War. After the conflict they resume their partnership. Willy joins the university while Harth builds aircraft at Bayerische Flugzeugwerke. (BFW) The S8 glider, designed by them, hit the record (unofficial) away in 1921 and they become partners in a driving school. In that same year it flew the glider S9, the first aircraft entirely conceived by Messerschmitt.

 

Awards
Messerschmitt was appointed honorary professor by the Technical College of Munich in 1930 and vice-president of the Deutsche Akademie für Luftfahrtforschung (German Academy of Aeronautical Research). The German government also granted him the title of Wehrwirtschaftsführer (leader of the defense industry). In 1938, Adolf Hitler awarded the German National Prize for Art and Science to the Messerschmitt.

In 1979, Messerschmitt was inducted into the Air & Space International Hall of Fame at the San Diego Air & Space Museum.

 

 

During World War II Willy Messerschmitt was the most respected engineer in Germany, even by his enemies.

After the war ended, many of the German engineers influenced many countries with their advanced aircraft design. Two German engineers who influenced many of their daring Design were Willy Messerschmitt and Kurt Waldemar Tank.

 

Judgment and post-war
After World War II, Messerschmitt was tried by a denazification court for using slave labor, and in 1948 he was convicted of being a "sympathizer" of Nazism.

After two years in prison, he was released and resumed his position as head of his company. As Germany was banned from manufacturing aircraft until 1955, it transformed its company into a manufacturer of prefabricated buildings, machinery, and small cars - most notably the Messerschmitt Kabinenroller.

From 1953 he worked for Spain at Hispano Aviación overseeing the design and construction of advanced jets such as the Hispano HA-200 Saeta, and the Helwan HA-300, which was finally manufactured in Egypt.
It produced under license in West Germany the Fiat G.91 and the F-104 Starfighter for use of the air force (the new Luftwaffe).

Egypt then got the design. The design team, led by Messerschmitt, moved to Helwan, Egypt, to continue his work on the HA-300, which now stood for Helwan Aircraft 300. Ferdinand Brandner, an Austrian jet engine specialist, was also invited to develop a turbojet for the new hunt. Egypt intended to produce a lightweight supersonic fighter with a single seat that could join the Egyptian Air Force as an interceptor.

The development of the Egyptian HA-300 began at the testing facilities and workshops at the No. 36 Factory in Helwan, southeast of Cairo, under the supervision of the Egyptian General Aero Organization (EGAO); officially the program began in 1959.

The first prototype of the HA-300, powered by a 2,200 kgp Orpheus Mk 703-S-10, first flew on March 7, 1964 and reached Mach 1.13. Egypt sent two Egyptian pilots to India in 1964 to prepare for the development of the HA-300 flight. It was followed by a second Orpheus prototype that flew for the first time on July 22, 1965. The third and final prototype was fitted with the Egyptian E-300 engine, which was expected to be capable of reaching 12,000 m and Mach 2.0 within 2 , 5 min after takeoff. This prototype was tested in flight at least once when it reached a Mach 2.1 speed with the Egyptian engine Brandner E-300.

The HA-300 was originally designed for the Orpheus BOR 12 turbojet, but the engine did not reach the minimum level of success required by Egypt in the combat jet. President Nasser saw from the outset a major threat to national security, depending on a British engine, because of the hostility that time between Egypt and Britain after the crisis of 1956 in the Suez.

The combat jet was then modified for the Egyptian engine Brandner E-300, which would have a post-combustion rate of 4,800 kgp, which achieved a high level of performance.

India also helped in financing the Egyptian E-300 jet engine in exchange for using it as a new engine for its HF-24 Marut. The E-300 jet engine successfully operated for the first time in July 1963.

Algerian President Ahmed Ben Bella was held negotiations to buy the plane with President Gamal Abdel Nasser and saw an air of a plane models, and the Egyptian president agreed to sell the plane to Algeria's long-term system because of the economic conditions of the Algeria after its liberation from colonialism and immediately after typing the production lines of the aircraft after However, a general setback and suspension of the project led to the freezing of the business until 1967 was canceled

The HA-300 was the smallest jet fighter aircraft ever designed and flown. Even the Gnat was bigger than it. Its delta wing was swept at 57.5° and its thickness/chord ratio was just 3%.  Prof. Messerschmitt was well ahead of his time in the concept of his first supersonic design. Unfortunately, he did not have an adequate industrial base from which to launch this daring design. If he could have done this work in a developed country, the HA-300 may well have been a success.

The wing design of HA-300 was also revolutionary. Its thickness to chord ratio was only 3%. This is still the thinnest duralumin aerofoil ever to be flown. Clearly, the HA-300 would have had amazing performance due to its lightness and very high thrust/weight ratio. These would have allowed it to go up almost vertically and reach 12,000 metres in only 2.5 minutes from brakes off. But, the thinness of its wing also meant that flutter was very likely. Its very small wingspan of just 5.84 metres meant that damping in roll at high altitude would have been low. This could result in inertia coupling at high rates of roll. The rudder was quite high above the centre line. The HA-300 was never tested for inertia coupling. But, it did show slight adverse bank on use of rudder

We need some Arab aircraft in the game. It would also best fit in the German tree.

Good Idea! :)

 

It could also be with that of Kurt Tank, he designed a jet fighter for India, HAL HF-24 in the 60s. 
And for Argentina in the 50s, IAe 33 Pulqui II (Arrow II) is similar to La-15 but it was based on the idea of the Ta-183, the prototype IAe 33 Arrow II existed.

You got all of my support I’m Arabian and I want some Arabian vehicles in game.

This will be a gift for you and your country at the same time :DD

I agree. We already have the TAM, which is a German tank built for Argentina. That idea would be similar.

I think it would also be interesting to have the I.Ae 37, which was a post war supersonic plane developed for Argentina by Reimar Horten. It could fit after the Ho 299.

There are multiple Arab countries. He could be from Morocco, not Egypt. lol
