  • World War 2 Aircraft Ranked-by-Speed, Fastest to Slowest (1939-1945)



    While certainly not the single-most important quality of every aircraft of World War 2, speed undoubtedly helped to create a winning design.





    While speed was not the essential design quality to successful aircraft of the war, it was certainly a benefit. The list below showcases World War 2 aircraft ranked by their reported/projected maximum speed values (including experimental designs). Bear in mind that the listed speeds below pertain to a specific production variant rather than to an entire family of aircraft (i.e. there were faster P-51 variants than our listed D-model, which is often considered the definitive Mustang). Additionally, some developmental aircraft appearing during the war are featured in this list including many "paper-only" German jet- / rocket-powered designs.


    There are a total of (566) World War 2 Aircraft Ranked-by-Speed, Fastest to Slowest (1939-1945) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by maximum reported speed (descending) by specific production model. Flag images indicative of country of origin.
