The Go 149 was designed by Dipi-Ing Albert Kalkert in 1936, and was a low-wing cantilever monoplane of mixed construction with inward-retracting main undercarriage members The wing was a wooden single-spar structure with plywood covering, and the fuselage was a light metal monocoque, and three prototypes were produced.
The projected lightweight fighter variant, the Projekt 16, was to have had slightly larger overall dimensions, an Argus As 410 engine and an armament of two 7,9-mm MG 17 machine guns.
