The Lippisch P.13 was a 1942 design for a high-speed bomber aircraft by Josef Hubert. Of highly unconventional configuration, it was a tail-less, swept-wing design with an engine and propeller mounted at both the front and rear of the aircraft. A large ventral fin gave it an almost cruciform cross-section.

At the time of the P.13's design, Hubert was working in Dr Alexander Lippisch's department at Messerschmitt; when Lippisch left the firm in April 1943, the department was dissolved and its designs (including the P.13) were abandoned.

The similarly-named Lippisch P.13a and P.13b were completely unrelated projects, undertaken after Lippisch's relocation to Vienna.
