The Flugzeugbau Zeppelin (FZ) company at Friedrichshafen on Lake
Constance, began working on the design of the Fliegende Panzerfaust
(flying bazooka) in the summer of 1944. The single-seat heavily
armored midget interceptor was to be towed into battle by a
conventional piston-engine fighter. Power was provided by a bi-fuel
HWK 509B or C, or by six solid-fuel rockets, and mounted, three on
each side on the rear fuselage. The FZ-FP project interceptor was
designed to ram the vertical tailplane of an enemy bomber and cause it
to lose control and crash. The high forces in the collision probably
would have resulted in the injury, or death, of the Fliegende
Panzerfaust's pilot. Therefore, development was halted in favor of a
well armed single-seat fighter.

This is similar to what was sold on eBay several years ago -- the
builder did an impressive job following the available plans. Now what
he would have used the thing for is another question.
