The Messerschmitt Me 262 is the first jet-powered fighter aircraft used in combat. Produced in Germany, it entered service in 1944 as an intercepting fighter.

Bomb and reconnaissance versions were also created. It was named Sturmvogel by German pilots, and among the Allies it was known as Turbo. The late entry of the aircraft into service meant that it did not play a significant role during the war. The Messerschmitt Me 262 achieved 900 kills while losing 100 of their own machines.
