While certainly not the single-most important quality of every aircraft of World War 2, speed undoubtedly helped to create a winning design.
The following list showcases production numbers for all aircraft in the MilitaryFactory.com database. To keep page download times short, we have a minimum requirement of 5,000 aircraft produced. Top-ranked entries naturally consist of war-time aircraft that are no doubt helped by their unique situation in history. However, even multirole civilian types have proven resilient and reach very high production totals. Since wartime record accuracy is not always possible, some production totals are estimated when needed. Additionally, newer aircraft entering production today have their totals updated when possible.
There are a total of 456 aircraft as part of the Aircraft Production Totals list in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by total aircraft production descending. Flag images indicative of country of origin.
