The Arado E.580 was a German World War II jet fighter design. Based on a design from 1943, the E.580 was then altered for the Volksjäger competition.


It had a single BMW 003A-1 engine above the fuselage, with the intake partially obstructed by the canopy. It had two MG 151/20 or MK 108 cannons in the nose.
