The Luftwaffe's Messerschmitt ME-262 Schwalbe jet. Once airborne, it simply could not be touched by allied fighters. It flew over 150 km/h faster. The only reliable way to destroy them, as with the Luftwaffe's even faster Me 163 rocket fighters, was to get to them on the ground before-and-during-take-off, or simply to deprive the Germans of the fuel supplies they needed. But this worked. These magnificent warbirds ended up not changing a thing in the course of the war.

Me 262 A, circa 1944-Schwalbe/ Sturmvogel (English: "Swallow"/ "Storm Bird") of Nazi Germany was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft.[7] Design work started before World War II began, but engine problems and top-level interference kept the aircraft from operational status with the Luftwaffe until mid-1944.

The Messerschmitt Me-262 was the first jet fighter to enter operational service. It was a superb day and night bomber interceptor, with a speed advantage so great, and armament so powerful, that it could easily intercept and destroy allied heavy bombers, while practically ignoring their swarms of piston-engined escort fighters, and the bombers' own gun turrets.
