The DFS 346 had a swept wing dewsign, which was placed in the center of the fuselage. The fuselage had a "cigar" design, wit the cockpit being the nose cone. The wongs were swept back at 45 degrees.
- Length: 44 FT 1 In
- Wingspan: 29 FT 6 In
- Wing Area: 213 FT
- Maximum Speed: 560 MPH
- The DFS 346 had an unusual escape system for its pilot: the nose cone would be jetisoned from the rest of the body, then a drag chute would pull off most of the nose cone, leaving a small part at the front and the pilot's seat. The pilot would then fall free from the nose, and his parachute would then deploy.
- Supposedly, there was a stability problem, which caused wing fences to later be added.
