Me-262 only brought down during at landing?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if the 262 was taken down in a dogfight?
I seem to get done on the landing when using the Me-262.

As far as I know, the overwhelming majority of Me-262's shot down were done while the 262 was either landing or taking off.  Once up to speed, the Me-262 could out run, out climb and out dive the Allied piston engine fighters.  Speed was what made the Me-262 such a fierce opponent.

You are quite welcome.  About the only ways you might get a Me-262 victory in a dog fight was if you could lure the 262 pilot into a slow, turning fight.  The Me-262 was not as agile as Allied fighters and in a slow, turning fight, it should be possible to turn inside a 262 and get a firing solution.
