The colloquial term for them was "elephant ears".

Messerschmitt’s P.1101 Never Flew, but Influenced Aviation for Decades
https://www.defensemedianetwork.com/stories/messerschmitts-p-1101-never-flew-but-influenced-aviation-for-decades/



Quote:
Messerschmitt's perpetual alternate history 'might have been' informed much post-war aircraft design

Quote:
While it had roots in the P.1101, it did not employ variable-sweep technology. SAAB built 661 Tunnans between 1950 and 1956, and despite its portly appearance the Tunnan was very comparable to the F-86 and MiG-15.

Germany’s First Jet Fighter: The He 280
https://www.defensemedianetwork.com/stories/germanys-first-jet-fighter-the-he-280/

Quote:
In tests, the He 280 proved itself speedier than the best German fighter, the Focke-Wulf Fw 190. “During a demonstration, the He 280 completed four laps on the oval circuit course before the Fw 190 could complete three. The maximum weight displacement of the He 280 was 4,296 kilograms (9,470 pounds) compared with 7,130 kilograms (15,720 pounds) for the Me 262.
Wartime Me 262 Pilot Said He Flew Faster Than Sound
https://www.defensemedianetwork.com/stories/wartime-jet-pilot-said-he-flew-faster-than-sound/

Quote:
Mutke’s assertion that he flew faster than sound was not his only claim to fame. On April 25, 1945, after attempting to engage a formation of B-26 Marauder medium bombers, Mutke flew his Me 262 to neutral Switzerland. When fighting in Europe ended two weeks later, Mutke took the position that because the Third Reich no longer existed, he was the rightful owner of the sleek jet fighter.
