Work on the P.14 started in the beginning of 1945,designed with the aid of Eugen Sanger, the aircraft was built around a Sanger Ramjet. The ramjet formed a large part of the fuselage with it's combustion chamber and exhaust nozzle being exposed to aid cooling. Take off was with booster rockets fitted to a detachable launch trolley to bring the P.14 to a speed were the Ramjet would work around 200 mph.
