1st Generation Fighter Aircraft
Aerospace | Aviation
The 1st Generation Fighter concept started it all - embodied by such types as the German Me 262, American P-80, and the British Gloster Meteor.
The Second Generation Fighter aircraft label covers those developments originating in the middle of the 1950s and leading into the beginning of the 1960s. These entries had limited supersonic flight capabilities with weapons centered primarily on guns and some early-form missile support. Pinnacle designs of this period include the Northrop F-5 'Freedom Fighter' and the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 'Fishbed'.
