As far as I'm aware, the Me262 (German jet fighter of WW2) did not come with a version featuring a "glass nose" for a "bomb aimer".

There's is a DML\Dragon 1/48 kit of one. Whether it existed in actuality, I don't know.

i think i remember reading about a mock up. i finally saw a picture of the nightfighter prototype. those mk 108's would have whooped major shit on bomber formations.

A friend of mine was a tail gunner on a B-17 towards the end of the war. He told me on one mission he was sitting there reading Stars and Stripes since the Luftwaffe was for all intensive purposes gone. A fast moving bogie was called out on his position. All he saw was a couple of seconds of flashes with the 17 off to the port side blowing up with the 262 flashing by - only time he ever saw a 262. Jim

i talked to a lot of vets during the 60's and 70's who were amazed that the germans had jets. they never knoew it! they were ground pounders, though, not flyers.

Me 262A-2a/U2.
An experimental conversion of a standard Me 262A-2a airframes.
So far as I know, only two were ever built - W.Nr.110555 and W.Nr 110484. Production was proposed under the designation Me 262A-3 but never actually begun.
Photos of both aircraft appear in Creek and Smith's Jet Planes of the Third Reich on pages 114 and 116.

Dad was aware of them but then he was in anti-aircraft. He claimed that the jets were faster than their radar tracking. Is that possible?
