Details (Description): The German Messerschmitt Me-262 was the world's first operational turbojet fighter aircraft. Introduced into action in 1944, the German Luftwaffe used it in many roles, including use as a fighter, bomber, and in reconnaissance roles. The Me-262 was officially named the 'Schwalbe' (Swallow), and was nicknamed the 'Turbo' by German pilots and the 'Stormbird' by the Allies.
The Me-262s were very fast and were able to achieve a kill ratio of approximately four to one, but the limited numbers of Me-262s available minimized their overall impact on the war. They did successfully show the advantages of jet aircraft in a military role, and signaled the end of the piston-engined military aircraft. Their use of R4M rockets against Allied bomber formations was also very effective, and signaled the beginning of the use of air-to-air missiles as effective weapons.
This highly detailed 1:72 scale version of the German Messerschmitt Me-262 depicts the aircraft as seen over Germany in 1945.
This German Messerschmitt Me-262 is part of Forces Of Valor's Micro Military Vehicles Series, and is the Enthusiast's Edition (which is the extremely detailed version of this aircraft). The aircraft includes landing gear that can be raised and lowered.
This German Messerschmitt Me-262 aircraft is approximately 5.5 inches long with a 6.5 inch wingspan.
