The Best Fighter Aircraft of All Time
War Is Boring
268

I wouldn’t even put the 262 in as the top German fighter of WW II. Both the 109 and 190 had a far greater impact during the war. While the 262 will always have a place in history as the bridge between prop planes and jet fighters, I wouldn’t rate it as a “better” plane than the 109 or 190 under the criteria set forth.
