The Messerschmitt Me 262, nicknamed Schwalbe (German: "Swallow") in fighter versions, or Sturmvogel (German: "Storm Bird") in fighter-bomber versions, was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. Design work started before World War II began, but problems with engines, metallurgy and top-level interference kept the aircraft from operational status with the Luftwaffe until mid-1944. The Me 262 was faster and more heavily armed than any Allied fighter, including the British jet-powered Gloster Meteor.[5] One of the most advanced aviation designs in operational use during World War II,[6] the Me 262's roles included light bomber, reconnaissance and experimental night fighter versions.

WINTER CAMO VERSION HERE, THIS IS A LINK!

I TRIED TO MAKE THE PERFORMANCE AS CLOSE TO THE REAL PLANE. IT'S JUST THAT I'M NOT SKILLFUL ENOUGH AT BUILDING GOOD PLANES, SO I'M VERY SKEPTICAL THAT THIS WILL DO GOOD.

    @TheCommentReader they are slow to take off, mainly because of the poor stall speed and because of the engines.

    It is pretty interesting of how it is slow in maneuverability and agility, It is realistic.

    I for myself is a Pretty Average Historian, and I do know for a Fact that Me-262s are slow at attempting sharp turns

    Idk if Me-262s take awhile to Lift off, but I presume they don't due to their strong Jet Engines.

    But this is a Real-Feeling 262 due to the Slow Sharp Turns like a real 262.

    All I'm saying is that the guns are well hidden

    @RuvienRuvienTheCitizen I like Me 262's and I'm an absolute madlad when flying them, and even if it doesn't fly that well, it has the correct fuselage shape, very few users have been able to replicate properly the fuselage of the Me 262.

    @RuvienRuvienTheCitizen I've been looking for a well made 262 airframe for a while, since I'm conducting test on engines of the era (BMW 018 and possibly the Jumo 004 with afterburner). I just need the frame, I can adjust the flight model to the real data :3
