HISTORY:

The Messerschmitt Me 262, nicknamed Schwalbe (German: "Swallow") in fighter versions, or Sturmvogel (German: "Storm Bird") in fighter-bomber versions, is a fighter aircraft and fighter-bomber that was designed and produced by the German aircraft manufacturer Messerschmitt. It was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft.

The initial design of what would become the Me 262 started in April 1939, prior to the start of the Second World War. While the aircraft performed its maiden flight on 18 April 1941, this was using piston engine instead of jet propulsion; it was not until 18 July 1942 that the first jet-powered flight was performed. Progress on the project was delayed by problems with engines, metallurgy and top-level interference from figures such as Hermann Göring, head of the Luftwaffe, and Adolf Hitler. The latter advocated from the Me 262 to be operated as a ground-attack/bomber aircraft rather than a defensive interceptor, thus necessitating a redesign.

Accordingly, the aircraft was eventually brought into operational status with the Luftwaffe during mid-1944. In its operational configuration, the Me 262 was both faster and more heavily armed than any Allied fighter, including the British jet-powered Gloster Meteor.

The Allies countered its effectiveness in the air by frequently attacking the aircraft while on the ground and during takeoff and landing.

    @miloeid14 reach 700 km/h at sea level and 900 km/h at high altitude, you have to gain energy first and then start the climb, first generation jets had high top speed but slow acceleration

    beautiful built. I saw a Me-262 at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC a few years ago. It still looks quite modern and aggressive. That's an amazing plane.
