From the Manufacturer
At the end of WW II, the Me 262 became the first jet powered aircraft in history to see combat service. But it was too late to make a difference and have an impact on the outcome of the war. It had 2 engines mounted under the wings and was first developed as a bomber rather than a fighter. However, the fighter version proved to be better than any propeller driven aircraft.
