The basic design was first tested in the MXY6 motor glider with a 22 hp engine in 1943. The tests were considered a success, and design of the J7W1 begane in June of 1944. Various configurations were tried, and the prototype modeled here has the rear mounted 2000 hp engine, 6 blade prop, 20 degree sweep back to the wing, two vertical stabilizers and four nose mounted 30mm cannon. It flew two weeks before the end of WWII but never saw combat.
