Messerschmitt Me 262 Report Abuse
The Schwalbe or Swallow was the first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. produced toward the end of World War II and saw action starting in 1944 as a multi-role fighter/bomber/reconnaissance/interceptor warplane for the Luftwaffe. It has been considered the most advanced German aviation design in service. Historians have argued that had this plane been introduced earlier during World War II, it would have changed the course of the war in favor of the Germans.
