Me-262

A real life Me-262

The Messerschmitt Me-262 "Schwalbe" is a German Fighter Jet created by the Messerschmitt aircraft design group during World War II. Tyson Morgan flies this plane on occasion, besides his F-15 "Strike Eagle"

It is also known as the first operational jet powered fighter plane in history.

Usage in Real Life Edit

Usually, Me-262s were used to attack American and British bomber squadrons during World War II, to prevent bombing campaigns, and were usually successful, due to the pilots going through training to kill without remorse. They were usually difficult to dogfight, due to their high speed and climb rate.

The 262 was also the plane of many aces with a kill-loss ratio of 450 kills and 100 losses, despite only 200 aircraft out of the 1,400 aircraft produced were operable during World War II.

Usage by Tyson and the Firestorm Mercenaries Edit

Tyson salvaged an Me-262 from an aircraft graveyard eight years before the Four way war in South Africa against rival PMCs, Terrorist groups, Drug Cartels, and Mafias.

As Tyson joined the Firestorm Mercenaries, he was given modifications to his plane, such as stronger wings, new engines, new weapons, and missiles, given the Me-262 would have been shredded by modern fighters such as the Su-27 or the MiG-35, or even the Chengdu J-20.
