Germany's Dornier Do 335 Pfeil fighter. On 23 May 1944, Hitler, as part of the developing Jägernotprogramm directive which took effect on July 3, ordered maximum priority to be given to Do 335 production. The main production line was intended to be at Manzel, but a bombing raid in March destroyed the tooling and forced Dornier to set up a new line at Oberpfaffenhofen.
