Could have actually happened too with, Israel grabbed anything they could back then.  As an aside, has anyone ever seen any photos of Israeli Beaufighters I know they existed but never seen pics?

Some I did a while ago: 

Turboprop version of the Me P.1099 (which was itself a derivative of the Me-262 - it utilised the wings and tail of the Me 262).  The plan is that this is would be a carrier based bomber, somewhat similar to the North American AJ Savage:

Another idea is for this turboprop Me-262 ground attack aircraft.  Maybe as the ultimate Ju-87 replacement:



The turboprops giving longer endurance in the ground attack role with the added benefit of tail guns.  Note also the attached RATO for added boost with a large bomb load.

Maybe after a few years, the Luftwaffe wanted a fast ground attack aircraft (hence the HGIII basis), but with heavier armament (6 cannon in nose).  Maybe even the old WGr 21. rocket finds a use in the ground attack role?  Whatever, the reason, this is the result:
