The Messerschmitt Me-262 Swallow was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. The Me-262 was one of the most advanced aviation designs in operational use during World War II. It was used in a variety of roles, including light bomber, reconnaissance and even experimental night fighter versions. Me-262 pilots claimed a total of 542 Allied kills against the loss of about 100 Me-262s.
