~ About the aircraft ~

The Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet, designed by Alexander Martin Lippisch, was a German rocket-powered fighter aircraft. As of 2011, it remains the only rocket-powered fighter aircraft to have ever been operational. Its design was revolutionary, and the Me 163 was capable of performance unrivaled at the time. Messerschmitt test pilot Rudy Opitz in 1944 reached 1,123 km/h (698 mph). Over 300 aircraft were built, however the Komet proved ineffective as a fighter, having been responsible for the destruction of only about nine Allied aircraft (16 air victories for 10 losses, according to other sources)

The Messerschmitt Me 210 was a German heavy fighter and ground attack aircraft of World War II. The Me 210 was designed to replace the Bf 110 in heavy fighter World War II. The first examples of the Me 210 were ready in 1939, but they proved to have poor flight characteristics.

The Me 262 Schwalbe ("Swallow") was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. Design work started before World War II began, but engine problems prevented the aircraft from attaining operational status until mid-1944. Compared with Allied fighters of its day, including the jet-powered Gloster Meteor, it was much faster and better armed. The Me 262 is considered to have been the most advanced German aviation design in operational use during WWII.

The Messerschmitt Me 321 Gigant was a large German cargo glider developed and used during WWII. It was developed into the six-engined Messerschmitt Me 323 Gigant.

The Messerschmitt Me 410 Hornisse ("Hornet") was a German heavy fighter and Schnellbomber used by the Luftwaffe during World War II, developed from the badly flawed Me 210. Essentially a straightforward modification of that type, the Me 210 had garnered such a negative reputation it was renamed the Me 410 to avoid association with its predecessor.
