Me.262. The best weapons are the winners!

By 1944, the Reich had played out to the point where any decision was bad. How to cover the sky with Vaterland? Continue production of piston fighters (Me-109K). Well mastered by industry, but significantly inferior in characteristics to the aircraft of the Allies. Or learn from scratch the production of reactive Me.262. They had a lot of technical and operational risks with ambiguous advantages.


Me.262. The best weapons are the winners!


The participants in such disputes each time cannot decide which solution is ultimately more beneficial for the German side. Confused and stop the argument. This is because any of the solutions presented is bad.

The Germans opted for Schwalbe


In any other conditions, this design would not have a chance to get into combat squadrons.

Only in the confusion of the last 13 months of the war did it become possible for the military and politicians to endorse the launch of a series of unexplored designs. Tomorrow, urgently - to the troops, without risk analysis and with the involvement of all aircraft manufacturing facilities in Germany.

Technical risks? The consequences of possible errors? The only consequence for Goering is a capsule with cyanide!

As a result, managed to build 1400 aircraft. As it turned out, much more than scarce fuel reserves and suitable aerodromes allowed for. Another eloquent evidence of the conditions under which the Schwalbe was adopted.

Less than half were able to rise into the sky.

Tactics without strategy is vanity before defeat.

(Sun Tzu.)



The Germans were the first?


When discussing Me.262, an impenetrable argument pops up: the Germans were the first. This fact justifies any compromises and shortcomings of Me.262. And that is a lie.

Schwalbe was not the first and was not even the best. Frankly speakingThe Messermitt-262 was the worst among jets of the period. By the beginning of the 1944 year, the Allies had their own reactive models that exceeded Me.262 in all respects. (More on this below.)

Despite the results achieved, they were not considered worthy of large-scale production. Jet fighters did not have a distinct superiority over piston peers. In most situations, they showed only flaws.

Because no one except the Luftwaffe did not bet on such a technique.

But the Luftwaffe had nothing to lose.

The most perfect WWII fighter


Last time we looked at the British Gloucester Meteor. F.1 modification aircraft made combat sorties simultaneously with the Schwalbe, in July 1944. Subsequently, the Meteors were removed from the front line and sent to intercept the V-1: the only task in which their strengths were revealed and the flaws were not so annoyed.

Today the next hero is next in turn - Lockheed P-80 “Shooting Star” (“Shooting Shooting star"). Formally, the most technically advanced fighter of the Second World War.


They are the same age! The illustration gives an idea of ​​how backward German aircraft were.


The only P-80 Shooting Star engine developed traction equivalent to the two Schwalbe engines! The normal take-off mass of the fighter was less per ton, with the same wing area as the “German”.

Shunting Star flight tests began in January 1944, they were regularly interrupted by returning to the wind tunnel. At the same time, the Halford engine was improved. Like all successful first-born jet-era fighters, the P-80 fighter had a British "heart". The Yankees were in no hurry and did not make bold conclusions, while the new machine was guaranteed to surpass the piston peers in terms of the combination of fighting qualities. By the way, the serial P-80A of the end of the 1944 of the year was significantly different in design from the earlier XP-80.

The Shuting Stari made a couple of episodic sorties in Europe in April 1945, but remained too raw to talk about forming full-fledged combat formations from them.

Lockheed specialists were the first to guess which layout meets the requirements for a jet fighter. The placement of the turbojet engine in the rear of the fuselage, with air intakes in the root of the wing.



Alas, even the Shooting Star with its high-torque engine and competent layout was only a step towards the creation of formidable aircraft of the jet era.

The Soviet Union had its own story


The union had to win the war, and leave the bold technical search until better times.

The war is over. The technical and industrial capabilities of the USSR made it possible to conduct a qualitative analysis of all foreign projects as soon as possible. Decide on promising areas and make unambiguous conclusions.

The aforementioned conclusions of aircraft designers will obviously not appeal to the current public. But first things first.

In an effort to justify and elevate the fascist degenerates, many participants in the discussions fell to self-flagellation. Literally - we Russians ourselves could not do anything until we got access to the technologies of the Aryan race.

The real state of things was different.

Build from scratch own jet did not work. And nothing happened after meeting with German technology. Until the parcel arrived with engines from Albion.



Superpower reduced the backlog in one leap aviation!

The last time I was cited as an example Su-11 (1946 year) as a direct legacy of the German Me.262. Forgot to indicate the number of built - 2 units. That was enough to make sure that Schwalbe was the road to nowhere.

It was a shame to look at the Salamander. They did not even try to recreate it in metal.

Junkers Jumo-004 and BMW-003 engines (designated RD-10 and RD-20) are an obvious futile. In 1946-48 Based on the BMW-003, 600 MiG-9 fighters were assembled. By the standards of that era, they did not even begin to build them, compare with the number of issued MiG-15 (13 thousand). The Soviet Air Force soon became convinced that the BMW-003 and the “stepped” redanny layout (the engine under the fuselage, like the German Fokke-Wulf Ta-183) was a dead end.

Despite access to the “miracle technique”, Soviet specialists urgently requested a Rolls-Royce Ning to study


In 1946, through diplomatic intrigues, 40 samples of these engines entered the USSR. Enough to launch mass production of its own analogue under the designation VK-1.

Universal air soldier. One VK - MiG-15 fighter. Two engines - Il-28 bomber.

So, whose foreign developments have caused the greatest interest? What technical solutions were most successfully used in the construction of the first domestic jet aircraft?

In my opinion, the answer is obvious. The right to assess the impact of fascist technologies on Soviet post-war aviation is left to the readers themselves.

The truth about the Uber fighter caused a flurry of criticism and negative emotions


It's time to answer the most “hot” questions of opponents.

Many were outraged by the comparison of Me.262 and the P-47 Thunderbolt in a previous article. The same take-off weight with half the thrust. And one and a half times greater unit load on the wing of the jet Messerschmitt. Which immediately raises doubts about its combat effectiveness.



How can one compare the single-engine piston Thunderbolt and the twin-engine reactive Schwalbe?

Very simple. Both fighters are designed to solve the same problem - air combat.

With constant atmospheric parameters, the gradient of the Earth’s gravitational field and the same level of technical development, all piston fighters had a familiar look and layout.

The take-off weight of the Me-109K and Thunderbolt could be doubled, but the basic set of TTX proportions remained unchanged for all fighters of the final WWII period.

Single engine direct wing piston aircraft. Having a “payload” (fuel, weapon with b / c, avionics) about a quarter of the take-off weight and the specific load on the wing 200 ± 20 kg / m2.

Among successful fighters with a different layout, only Lightning can be recalled.

The German geniuses proposed their own solution - the experimental Pfail with tandem motors. The flight was fun, until the approach began. To touch the strip with a 1.5-meter lower keel (without a keel, he “struck” with a pushing screw) - under combat conditions, every second flight could end in Do.335 disaster. Anyway.

The tasks of a single-engine piston fighter were assigned to the jet "Messer"


He was sorely lacking in thrust, so Me.262 turned out to be twin-engine.

Even with two thrust engines, he still lacked, and the dubious combat value of the Schwalbe was obvious even at the stage of initial calculations.

It is worth noting that fighters with such an absurd layout as those of Schwalbe have not been built for 60 years. I was cited as an example by various IL-28, passenger Boeings and SR-71, the only joke is that none of the above is a fighter.

Of the really similar, we can recall only the specific interceptor Yak-25.

Considering the scanty number of Yak-25s built, as well as their “long” career in the Air Force, it should be recognized: apparently, this model has not received recognition because of its features. It is possible that other fighters with engine nacelles located under the planes were born within the walls of the design bureau, but not one became massive and successful.

The classic scheme for all fighters 1950-60's. became a "flying pipe." With an air intake in the nose of the fuselage, divided into two "sleeves", between which was the cockpit. The engine itself or engines were always located in the rear of the fuselage, not protruding beyond it.

The second option involved the location of air intakes in the root of the wing, freeing up space for a massive radar under the nose fairing. The same conditions and tasks explain the similarity of structures.

And the German “innovations” died along with the Reich.

Answers to reader questions


“Does the wing lift, in addition to the area, also depend on the shape of the wing and the flow velocity, how exactly does the wing lift of the P-47 and Me-262 relate?"

(The question was asked by Andrey Shmelev.)

This question must be answered in the reverse order. The lifting force of the Me.262 wing is less at once for two reasons. 1. Smaller area. 2. Sweep.

An arrow-shaped wing has a lower bearing capacity than an equal-sized straight wing. Therefore, military aircraft with a variable sweep wing (for example, Su-24) at subsonic speeds and during take-off and landing have an almost straight wing, “spreading” the console to the extreme position.



The benefits of swept wings appear only at high speeds. Much larger than those on which the Me262 and its opponents flew - piston fighters.

Small sweep wing Me.262 instead of the direct wing P-47. It does not compensate for the 1,5-fold difference in the value of the specific load. Based on the known facts, the swept wing only worsens maneuverability at speeds significantly lower than 1 Max.

To avoid further questions: Schwalbe did not have an integrated layout and any measures and miracles to avoid disruption of the flow.

“How exactly can you recalculate the thrust-to-weight ratio of a screw machine and a reactive one in a single system of traction power using the example of P-47 and Me-262?


The author will not pretend that he is daily engaged in recalculating the thrust-weight ratio of aircraft. Thrust - in kgf or tons, for a screw machine is created by its propeller group. In fact - the mass of air thrown by the screw. Model aircraft can find formulas in a search engine in minutes.

Given the format of the article, it is enough to see a simple and obvious fact - for an airplane, thrust is needed about a quarter of its take-off weight. For a fighter - there should be more, piston WWII fighters had a thrust-weight ratio at the 0,5 level.

And all the secret becomes apparent. This immediately explains why the 6-ton Schwalbe with 1,8 tons of thrust lacked the length of the runways. And why did the Messer evade any maneuvers causing a loss of speed.

The thrust ratio of Me.262 was less than the thrust ratio of piston aircraft.

The memory of the defeated enemy


Opponents accused the author of abuse of the enemy (accepted! The Reich fully deserved it) and downplaying the memory of the Victory in that war. The author strongly disagrees with the second paragraph.

First, Schwalbe were not used on the Eastern Front, except for occasional encounters with them in the air. There is simply nothing to downplay or exaggerate.

Secondly, it is enthusiastic remarks about Schwalbe that glorify fascism. The Germans were evil geniuses! It turns out, not geniuses. They just had a transcendental sense of their own greatness.

There is not a single area in which fascist Germany would achieve outstanding technical success, who had no analogues with us or our allies. Soviet armored vehicles, British jet engines - the cradle of modern aviation, nuclear weapons, anti-aircraft guided missiles (the American Lark complex) - all this existed in practice.

Neo-Nazis can only remember von Braun and his rockets. But von Braun alone is not enough for the “millennial Reich,” imagining itself to be the main nation on earth.

The Wehrmacht and the Luftwaffe never had clear technical superiority


All the successes of the Germans and our losses are the result of their better organization. An extremely unpopular conclusion, which, instead of soothing excuses (the German crushed with technology!), Forces us to look for reasons in ourselves and eliminate our own shortcomings. So that this does not happen again.

As for the Schwalbe fighter, enough has already been said about its technical appearance and comparison with other jet aircraft of the WWII era.

How and why was Me.262 launched into the series? It is useless to seek rational meaning in the actions of an agonizing adversary.

      We read WIKI:

      After the war, the USAAF compared the P-80 and Me 262A concluding, "Despite a difference in gross weight of nearly 2,000 lb (900 kg), the Me 262 was superior to the P-80 in acceleration, speed and approximately the same in climb performance. The Me 262 apparently has a higher critical Mach number (the Me 262A's being at M 0.86), from a drag standpoint, than any current Army Air Force fighter. "[6]

      We translate: Me-262 showed superiority over R-80
      despite the greater weight, the Me-262 gained speed faster, was faster ... had the best Mach chillo

      Threat. and the P-80A was worth 110 thousand dollars;)

        Why would a heavier aircraft with worse aerodynamics and a less high-torque engine have an advantage in acceleration performance?

      once again, let's go back a little:

      A reader's question:
      “How exactly can you recalculate the thrust-to-weight ratio of a screw machine and a reactive one in a single system of traction power using the example of P-47 and Me-262?
      Kaptsov's answer:
      "The author will not pretend that he is daily engaged in recalculating the thrust-weight ratio of airplanes. Thrust - in kgf or tons, for a screw machine is created by its rotor-motor group. In fact - the mass of air thrown off by the screw. Aircraft modelers can find formulas in a search engine in minutes ... Thrust-weight ratio Me. 262 was less thrust-weight piston aircraft. "
      Conclusion:
      Oleg does not understand that how the efficiency of the propeller group decreases with increasing air flow rate, and therefore is not able to answer the question: why is the Me-262 faster than the R-47.

      This immediately explains why the 6-ton Schwalbe with 1,8 tons of thrust lacked the length of the runways.

      next pearl from the same topic of misunderstanding the ratio of engine efficiency and air flow rate

      Why would a heavier aircraft with worse aerodynamics and a less high-torque engine have an advantage in acceleration performance?

      another pearl from the same topic.
      First, Oleg did not show the advantages of the R-80 in aerodynamics.
      The second - the complete superiority of the Me-262 with respect to the efficiency of the air intakes is presumed, which Oleg again does not understand.

      And all these to the reader’s question:
      “Does the wing lift, in addition to the area, also depend on the shape of the wing and the flow velocity, how exactly does the wing lift of the P-47 and Me-262 relate?"
      Kaptsov's answer:
      "This question needs to be answered in the reverse order. The lift of the Me.262 wing is less for two reasons at once. 1. Less area. 2. Sweep."
      Conclusion: Oleg, well, it’s not worth it ...;)

      And finally, cu de gras:

      The following cars were produced:
      Lockheed XP-80 Shooting Star
      Lockheed XP-80A Shooting Star
      Lockheed YP-80A Shooting Star
      Lockheed P-80A Shooting Star
      Lockheed P-80B Shooting Star
      Lockheed P-80C Shooting Star

      the first prototype XP-80 took off a year and a half after the flight of the Me-262 with turbojet engine

      P-80A appeared in parts only in the summer of 1945
      before that there were only XP-80A and YP-80A
      take the characteristics of the post-war R-80 and shove in 1944 as correctly as

      I am waiting for an article from Kaptsov about how the T-1943 tank with a gas turbine and a 80-mm gun was washed down at the Gorky Automobile Plant in 125

      You can and should argue with the article. At least on the issue of the primacy of the Americans in fighter jets, and not only. But, honestly, Oleg surprised me in a good way. A lot of work is visible, but Kaptsov never had a problem with the syllable and logic.
      A quality article, albeit with controversial issues, which, like its first on the topic and the article by R. Skomorokhov, will gather a large number of comments. But is this not an indicator of the interest of the VO audience?
      And do not blame the author for inaccuracies. It has what information it uses.
      I am convinced that there is no conscious juggling of facts - different sources often give different data. And to take something for the absolute truth, I would beware.
      And the fact that Kaptsov “caused fire on himself” after many critical comments on the first article, writing a sequel, is worth a lot.
      Bravo Oleg!

          An engine of the same size with an 2 thrust was required, and the Soviets knew that the British had such an engine

            Already wrote about this when they bought Nin? after fine-tuning the post-war period, but during the war it was no better than the German models, the Saxons could work on the engine calmly all the end of the war, but the Germans were deprived of this opportunity almost completely you are not correctly comparing military and post-war production of jet aircraft

              Before Nina and the British, there was a whole line of turbojet engines that had no equal in specific and absolute indicators among peers. Halford (aka General Electric J33 - the Shooting Star engine with 1,5-2 tons of thrust), at the same time as Dervent, Nin was created by the year 45

            Just for information. UMO-004С had traction 1000kg. For two engines, static thrust 2 tons:

            And in terms of specific characteristics, Yumo was not an outsider among his contemporaries.

            Junkers Jumo-004 (880 kgf thrust) - dead end

            Junkers Humo is not a dead end, a dead end Rolls-Royce Ning and Dervent. EMNIP on these engines ends the era of engines with a centrifugal compressor. Further development of the aircraft engine industry went along the path of building engines with an axial compressor. "http://militera.lib.ru/h/brofy_a/24.htmlIn 1944, while the J-40 engine was successfully developed at Lynn, the engineers at General Electric in Schenectady, who were developing the first turboprop engine, found time to work and above a turbojet engine. [310] As in a turboprop, this turbojet engine used an axial compressor, the advantages of which were a smaller frontal area and higher efficiency than a centrifugal compressor mounted on a J-40 engine. A contract was signed and the TG-180 engine (according to the J-35 Air Force nomenclature) went into production. Until the end of the war, the development and production of J-35 engines were carried out by General Electric exclusively at Schenectady.

              I would not say that for all aviation. In jet aircraft - yes, and where the screws and fans are centrifugal turbines are used even on the most modern engines. For example, a Garrett TPE331 turboprop engine

              "..... These engines have a two-stage centrifugal compressor. They are installed mainly on small short-haul passenger, transport and sports aircraft. For example: An-38, Jetstream 41, Cessna 441 Conquest II and even when remotorizing our An-2 (new name TVS-2MS) ..... "

            The fact is that Junkers was with an axial compressor, and Rolls with a centrifugal compressor, operating in a temperature range well below the axial one. Junkers' problems lay in the field of materials science.
            As soon as heat-resistant materials and internal cooling of the blades were obtained, the whole world switched to the axial design of a gas turbine engine.

              The German jet adventure was different from the consistent development of engine building in other countries because the engineers at Jumo and BMW tried to make a theoretically correct design out of “shit and sticks”.

              After the war, all production and research equipment of German factories and design bureaus, as well as several thousand German and Austrian designers, engineers and technicians for the development and production of turbojet engines, were exported to the USSR. They and their Soviet colleagues were tasked with setting up production of German structures (under Soviet titles) at a new location, which they successfully managed.

              However, copies of the British turbojet engine with a centrifugal compressor, less theoretically efficient, but absolutely operational at the level of engineering and technology of that time, went into the series.

              The German wunderwaffles were only suitable for gaining negative experience, which is also a result only from the point of view of science, but not from the point of view of the military-industrial complex and the air force of any country, with the exception of the Third Reich.

        Well, do not distort the same. The Germans made a huge contribution to this foundation.
        Yes, and how to understand this:
        The last time I was cited as an example Su-11 (1946 year) as a direct legacy of the German Me.262. Forgot to indicate the number of built - 2 units.

        Well, to begin with, the analogue of Me-262 was not Su-11, but Su-9. Well, yes there were only two of them. but nevertheless in the USSR this scheme was not rejected.
        Now it remains just to find out how much the Yak-25 was released

        and Yak-28

        Most of all, it is of some interest that Yakovlev himself, although he was an adversary of the Me-262 aircraft, and very zealous, but all this did not prevent him, seven years after the war and ten years after the first flight of the "Burevestnaya Swallow", to apply his installation scheme engines in his plane, although already at that time both the MiG-15, La-15, and his Yak-23, where the engine was in the fuselage, flied quite well

          If my memory serves me, then according to the technical specifications, Yakovlev created a barrage fighter. that is, the plane should not rise into the air to intercept the enemy that appeared, but should be on duty in the air waiting for its appearance. Perhaps for this task, such an arrangement of the aircraft seemed to the designers the most suitable.

                A circuit with separated engines seems more tenacious.
                Detachment of the engine blades in a circuit with two engines in the fuselage - with a high probability will lead to failure of both engines, breaking tanks, loss of aircraft.
                The engine diversity scheme provides better access to pre-flight inspection and maintenance.
                With the growth of engine reliability, the scheme lost its significance and was partially used in the A-10 and Su-25 attack aircraft (engine spacing, to increase combat survivability). By the way, the competitor A-10 Northrop YA-9 also had spaced engines (on opposite sides of the fuselage), like the Su-25.

    As far as I understand, Schwalbe did not initially think of it for a dog dump. Sharpening was - under the extremely annoying Amer bombers. He quickly approached, crashed from all the trunks and - fell down ... Therefore, comparing it with the rest of the fighters is probably not very true. The P-47 was also a rare shit in air battles, but as a long-range escort fighter at high altitudes, it was quite suitable. But they don’t like him?

          In total, from 1941 of the year 1933 pieces of Me-262 (experimental and serial) were produced, of which 61 (sixty-one) aircraft took part in the hostilities. Where did you see the mass solution to combat missions? In fact, there was a massive squandering of the scarce material, labor, and mobilization resources of the Third Reich.

          I strongly disagree with Oleg Kaptsov that the Me-262 was a bad choice for the Germans: Schwalbe was an excellent choice - from the point of view of the Red Army Air Force, US Air Force and Royal Air Force laughing

    Very simple. Both fighters are designed to solve the same problem - air combat.

    Only one - to accompany the raids, and the second - Pe-Be-O !!! Therefore, Shuting Star did not fight and the USSR Bi-1 was abandoned - with those engine resources and a reserve of fuel, it would simply not have flown before the battle, it could only be air defense, and only in a losing country - they would be hit faster than the resource runs out.
    Further, what kind of yearling are you, Shuting Star, who STARTED to develop in the 43 year and flew in the 1941 year for Me 262? !!!

        Haha, not haha, the glider was licked, in the 42 it was flooded and flying with a turbojet, and the statics in the 1941 were tested with a turbojet. 1942 year - everything is ready. No jokes and Staras were heard even in the project, the dviglo came to the USA in 1943 and only then they started to start talking about Shuting, and already probably knew about the developments Gloucester Meteor and Bi-1 from the allies ... Already rake studied. Ha ha - this is "ha ha - Shuting is as old as Robert Scott at the South Pole!"
        Messer could be used in 1942, it was just that the Reich wasn’t needed then for the same reason as the Shuting Star and then the Americans - with the then metallurgy, for example, normal blades could not be made, there’s no resource.
        Once again, you look at the rivets. But you need to look at reality. Why was Messer needed and why? A breakthrough to the bombers in conditions of total control of the sky by the enemy. Did he do that? He only did nightlights! And where did you see the shame?
        And again, they are not at the same age. If the Germans had time to redo everything, they might have altered it, but it was fully developed already in 1942. start a new project in 1943, they are not the same age !!!

          As soon as new alloys appeared (thanks to the development of materials science), only then did normal jet engines appear, capable of accelerating planes above the speed of sound.

                  Have you heard anything about the continuity of generations?
                  This is when the grandfather was a locksmith, the father was a locksmith, and the son became a locksmith - that is, 100 years of almost technical culture.
                  And another thing, when Russia from 1925 (almost no industry) rushed to 1941 to the level of all industrialized countries in 20 years. That is, the son, whose father went behind the plow, quite successfully becomes both the chief designer and a qualified mechanic. Hence the difference in the level of technical culture with Germany.
                  100 hours for 100% load
                  as well as the 605th - the RLM requirements were uniform

                  Seriously ? )))
                  How many captured, new Jumos flew to the USSR before the failure? )))

                    so this is the trick that they were from ersatz,
                    new 004 from normal materials (1942) - see above

                    but also 30 hours - very good)
                    if you add that 004 is more than two times cheaper than 605,
                    and it’s easier to capitalize
                    and 605 on the afterburner is killed very quickly

                    something like

                    Okay, don’t be tormented.

                    Forcing the M-82 for La-5 gave an increase in speed of up to 40 km / h due to the ability to use the take-off mode at the first supercharger speed in flight in steps 1, and in exceptional cases up to 5 minutes within the total duration of work in this mode 10 hours before the first bulkhead

                    and so on

    Well, as for the Wehrmacht’s hope for a miracle weapon, Kaptsov is right, here is Me 262, and Mouse and God knows what, not to remember ...
    And whether the German engineer was kind or evil, it depended on the size of his salary, and the point at which the coloring of his activities is evaluated ...

    Especially for Oleg I decipher his words to him:

    Me-262 - the first flight from the taxiway July 1942
    R-80 - first flight January 1944

    BETWEEN THEM AND A half OF THE YEAR!

    that is why

    The Shuting Stari made a couple of episodic sorties in Europe in April 1945, but remained too raw to talk about forming full-fledged combat formations from them.


    Oleg, carefully read your articles;)

    It is time.


    R-80A had a General Electric engine J33-GE-11 with a thrust of 1748 kg
    But the 890 km / h P-80A was developed with Allison J33-A-25-turbojet, with a thrust of 2450 kg in the 1953 year.
    Maybe I don’t know or confuse request

    Oleg, enlighten me, pst, regarding the exact characteristics of the R-80A machine adopted by the Air Force in February 1945.

        General Electric I-40, aka J-33, who was standing on the P-80, developed the 1800kg traction. Two Yumo-004 with 2000 kgs. According to the summary table of parameters p12

        Where is a quarter less traction? With shorter Schwalba air intakes?

        and more air resistance (the monstrous appearance of the Me.262 with engine nacelles will not allow this to be doubted)


        The erroneous opinion, dear Oleg, that the nacelles of a jet aircraft create some sort of particularly great resistance.
        Not the entire area of ​​the nacelle is involved in calculating air resistance - the air intake area is subtracted, because what draws in air faster than the incoming flow cannot create resistance.
        Side walls yes, they create some resistance.

        But the archaic keel and horizontal stabilizer P-80 has a lot of resistance. In addition, the horizontal stabilizer is partially located in the shading of the fuselage (in turbulent satellite flows), which does not contribute to stable control in certain modes.
        The Me-262 has a horizontal stabilizer extended upward - which is more progressive for high speeds - also not without drawbacks.

        In general, the aerodynamics of the P-80 cause a contradictory impression - the laminar profile and the engine inside the fuselage, the progressive air intake pattern (for the period of the appearance of airborne radars with intra-fuselage antennas - 15 years ahead), are adjacent to the archaic fuselage fairing, an outdated and ineffective tail unit - a controversial aircraft.
        I did not like the live P-80.



        Me-262 gives the impression of a much more thoughtful and calculated aircraft designed for jet engines and corresponding speeds, and the P-80 made in a hurry (which was actually) transitional from propeller aircraft, very quickly outdated, but gave several promising schemes for further development.

    The Germans were evil geniuses! It turns out, not geniuses. They just had a transcendental sense of their own greatness.


    I support. If we assume that the German weapons were created by geniuses, then we will have to admit that Hitler, who had rolled around during the disputes with his subordinates on the floor and gnawed on carpets, never studied anything, and who was stabbed by morphine in furs and red boots above his knees, and Keitel’s bastard, nicknamed Lackeytel and other “ministerial salary postmen,” were really a little smart people, at least in technical matters. Then the next step: maybe their racial theory of Untermensch Slavs is not completely complete nonsense? Could smart pragmatic people like that take and believe unconditionally in something, without any reason.

    Regarding V-1 and V-2 - this is also "ahead of time". All that could be done with this weapon was to kill several thousand random passers-by on the streets of London. Then Bin Laden was a great genius of military art. Ten people with plastic knives - five thousand killed civilians, and tens of thousands of kilometers from his lair.

    Especially for those over 40-50 years old. They were so amicably hammered into the heads by the superiority of German technology (it was very convenient to blame the failures of 41g on this) that they had already developed a conditioned reflex to this)))
    And they don’t want to hear about anything else.
    The first article was good, but this one laid out almost everything "on the shelves"))) The explanations are thorough - there is nothing to cling to and contrast, but they will cling to anything. In years, the brain is being reconstructed hard, and not everyone will agree to accept new information. Most just "puppy" in their own little world, isolating any information from the outside, so that nothing would disturb peace))

      Colleague Lukul, do not count in VO "those who are over 40-50" and senile. In the neoliberal mass media, “swelling”, in your words, about the alleged superiority of German technology, on a serious scale took place only in the Gorbachev-Yeltsin perestroika and the first Russian years, and for those who were able to think people was never decisive, let alone “reflex”. ..
      None of the numerous commentators on the opus of Mr. Kaptsov's Opus have ever talked about the 262nd as the pinnacle of technical thought (in terms of engine, fuselage, armament, flight performance, etc.), which determined the path of the world jet aircraft industry for many years. It was only said that by 1945, the Reich had built almost one and a half thousand serial fighter jets, half of which flew and took part in hostilities mainly on the western front. None of the allies in the anti-Hitler coalition at that time, or even in the next year or two, had anything like that. The same “shooting stars” really fought only in the Korean War and, despite the author’s scribbled praises about their power and sophistication, were severely beaten by the Soviet MiG-15s.

          Oh what a surprise!
          give a small text in the original so that they don’t say that they translated it wrong:

          The service history of the Shooting Star begins in 1944, when the decision was made to deploy four service test YP-80As to Europe to demonstrate their capabilities to combat crews and to help in the development of tactics to be used against Luftwaffe jet fighters. 44-83026 and 83027 were shipped to England in mid-December 1944, but 44-83026 crashed on its second flight in England, killing its pilot. 44-83027 was turned over to the British government and modified by Rolls-Royce to flight test the B-41, the prototype of the Nene turbojet. On November 14, 1945, 44-83027 was destroyed in a crash landing after an engine failure. 44-83028 and 83029 were shipped to the Mediterranean. They flew some operational sorties, but they never encountered any enemy aircraft. They were both returned to the USA after the war.
          The tenth, eleventh, and twelfth YP-80As were delivered in early 1945 to the 31st Fighter Squadron of the 412th Fighter Group at Bakersfield Municipal Airport in California for service tests. The first production P-80A was accepted by the AAF in February of 1945. The group relocated to Santa Maria AAF, California in July of 1945. It moved again in November of 1945 to March Field, California. After the war in Europe was over, P-80As began to replace the P-51D and the few P-59As which had served with stateside units. The first 17 P-80As off the line were assigned to the 31st Squadron of the 412th Fighter Group, supplementing the YP-80As that the Group had already received. More P-80As went to the 29th and the 445th Squadrons of this group in the summer of 1945. This group was in preparation for deployment to the Pacific when Japan surrendered.
          In the summer of 1945, approximately 30 P-80As were sent aboard an aircraft carrier to the Philippines in preparation for the final assault on Japan. The planes were to be issued to the 414th Fighter Group, based at Florida Blanca. Unfortunately, the planes had been sent without their tip tanks and their aircraft batteries, so they sat aboard the aircraft carrier for 30 days waiting for this equipment. By the time that the batteries and wingtip tanks were delivered, the war in the Pacific had ended, so the P-80 never got a chance to enter combat in the war against Japan.

With the same success, you can pull by the ears to the peers of the P-80 and MiG-15, only between them a chasm. Although it would seem that a couple of years, which the author does, can be ignored.

    Excellent article. Thanks to the author. He slashed the German lovers lizunov in full. A couple of comments on the topic:
    - Tri-fusel Me-262 from the point of view of aerodynamics, ensuring durability and production technology shit.
    -The location of the engines in the Yak-25 is due to the need to free the nose for a massive radar.
    -English people are the undisputed leaders in the aircraft engine industry in the 30-40s - Bristol Centaur, Napier Saber, Rolls-Royce Merlin - outstanding engines ...
    -Lame Me-262, more likely a rule than an exception, it’s hard to disagree with the author, just remember the bent sidewall of the Tiger tower ...

      -Traugal fusel Me-262 in terms of aerodynamics, ...... and you saw in the front of the MiG-29 and Su-27,? and Tu-160 ????
      -The location of the engines in the Yak-25 is due to the need ... it was due to the need for a fuel reserve so that the 25th could barrage 4-5 hours relative to that time. time was like that
      - The British are the absolute leaders ... just not there, the Anglo-Saxons but not like the Saxons, they bought full shit from the Saxons in the form of Nin, the centrifuge didn’t pay off
      -Lame Me-262, .... miserable or not miserable, but a man named Kurt Velter flunked 31 bomber in 40 sorties, until now, those who have not reached flying fighter jets
      normal topic?

        Crimean partisans receive a special award for the wildest comment, consisting of selected delirium

        1. Kurt Welter flew night fighters. Almost all of his victories were won at night, on piston fock wolves and so on. And where is reactive Schwalbe?

        2. Ning did not justify himself. In total, 6000 silts and 13000 twigs built with these engines, the most massive fighter jet in history

        Also, as the sail with which the sailors suffered for 5000 years, until they came up with a gas turbine, didn’t pay off, it justified right away)))

        3. How the placement of engines in nacelles could increase the fuel supply of the Yak-25.
        The reason for this arrangement is the bulkiness of engines of the required power, which cannot be placed otherwise

          1 "Kurt Velter flew night fighters. Almost all of his victories were won at night, on piston fock wolves, and so on. And what about jet shwalbe?"
          here I send santafe to Mikhail Zefirov, this man is saturated with archival dust
          2. Ning did not justify himself. A total of 6000 sludges and 13000 blinks were built with these engines, .. well built, and then, the MiG-19 with an axial drive, the MiG-21 with an axial drive, the Su-7 with an axial drive and so on into the future, everything with an axial drive, the only one where VK- 1 took root so it is in the fire department as a gas-gas fire extinguishing vehicle
          3.How placing the engine in the engine nacelles could increase the fuel supply of the Yak-25 ....... because the fuselage of the Yak-25, like the Yak-28, was a tank with a heater for maximum barrage time
          so I don’t need a prize, give me a reward

            never try to prove Kaptsova anything. if you are right, it will begin to find fault with words. and then it just merges, runs its own cartoons (and he has a lot of them), it will put down minuses. his articles are skipped on VO just to revive comments. de facto kaptsov is a simple troll, by the way, quite thick.

        "Jet" Ace fighter No. 1 - Evgeny Pepelyaev - 26 shot down,
        "Jet" Ace fighter No. 2 - Nikolai Sutyagin - 23 shot down.
        Who Kurt Velter is is unknown, as well as his 31 “littered”, apparently, it’s some kind of fascist chameo who ate the “wing of chocolate” with pervetin, and therefore trying to make everyone else believe in his hallucination? Another lover to record shelled aircraft in the "littered". Victim of FKP arbitrariness in the Luftwaffe.

          read at your leisure, to help archival works of Mikhail Zefirov. the aircraft shot down by this pilot has a fixation of the side numbers and codes of the units to which they belonged since they fell in the territory of the Reich
          Well, the fact that Pepeliaev, Sutyagin, Schukin Kramarenko and many of the 64th air corps showed incredible efficiency ... here without words, the more they were no different from the pilots of swag. even worse. ----- there were no direction finders, the HP-37 gave out so many powder gases into the inlet tunnel that the VK-1 began to “sneeze” anti-reloading devices at all, then, with just two divisions, our pilots slowed down the UN coalition ... such is the truth

                  I am sure that in vain you are. The apparent simplicity and brevity in your case is not a "sister of talent", but rather an indicator of the level of marginality.
                  Sorry if I offended inadvertently.
                  I’ll write to you about the subject of your adoration, otherwise you’ll still think that according to Kurt Velter you have no equal ...
                  What is Kurt Welter.
                  We turn to the encyclopedia World Aviation, section Military aircraft, file Me-262, section - "night jet."
                  Briefly so as not to bore you.
                  In November 1944, the Commando Velter was formed, the only combat unit of the Me-262V-1a / U-1 night interceptors. It was commanded by Lieutenant Velter, who flew as an instructor until 1943, and then turned out to be one of the pioneers of the Luftwaffe jet aircraft. Probably (there is no exact confirmation of this !!!) Welter, who was the first to shoot down an enemy aircraft at night on a jet interceptor. November 27, 1944 POSSIBLE !!! his victim was the British Mosquito. The Velter team has never been armed with more than 12 vehicles; in some sources, this unit was designated - 10 / NJG-11. The results of the hostilities, again, DECLARED, BUT NOT CONFIRMED !!! more than modest. So, you have to disappoint you. For the entire time of existence, and this is 5-6 months, the Velter commando said only 48, allegedly shot down. It turns out that on average, a group shot down 8 planes per month. In a week, somewhere went 2 sides! I emphasize UNCONFIRMED !!! Awesome “performance”, don’t you find ?! This despite the fact that the sky at this time was simply teeming with allied planes! Day and night! For some reason, Velter didn’t record a single one of those shot down by the group, so he is not among the “reactive” aces of the Luftwaffe.
                  It is possible that all the data of his victories were destroyed by him, together with all the documentation of the Velter Commando, in early May 1945. The reason for this is simple - Kurt rushed to the British on May 7, and so that they did not make claims to him, according to his losses, he destroyed all the information about it. Well, so as not to spoil relations with the new owners.
                  Therefore, the wrong pattern you have chosen for worship. Speaking with your slang, “not a topic,” not a rule at all.
                  I would understand, for example, if you mentioned Weissennberger (8 shot down on the Me-262), or Bücher (12 shot down on the Me-262), or at worst - Schall, still shot down 14 on the “Schwalbe” .. And Velter chased, and himself deprived himself of his victories. Who now and what can prove about him?
                  Well, in short, something like this ...
                  Regarding marshmallows, there is information that the guy became interested in SK. More precisely, his "research" activities in terms of the history of the Luftwaffe in World War II. Someone, somewhere upstairs, it seemed that all Misha literary activity is aimed at the glorification and heroization of Nazism ... That's it! So you are more careful there. They already give articles for reposts, but here are whole "chronicles" of the Luftwaffe. Take care of yourself...

                    "What is Kurt Velter .... In November 1944, the Commando Velter was formed," ..... it was formed a little earlier than November, but this unit, (just like the Arad unit better known as "Commando Bonin "), out of only two units of swabs, and when 10 / NJG-11 (a squadron by our concepts) was formed, then there were only two pairs of swabs
                    “so as not to spoil relations with the new owners” ... that’s why his new owners “left” in a parallel world, just like Schnaufer
                    .
                    Regarding marshmallows, there is information that the guy became interested in SK. ..... it’s a pity that the UK was not interested in the work of Andrei Smirnov, which is only worth his work, “Combat Work of Soviet and German Aviation in the Great Patriotic War,” “Mine Camph” is resting
                    Therefore, you didn’t choose the model for admiration ...... the goal of our discussion, IF THE SCHULBY CHANGE THE CHARGE OF THE WAR, I think YES, just like the two Red Army divisions on the MiG-15 in Korea and the enemy was pretty strong, and here it is worth asking a question. But how did the Soviet MiG pilot differ from the Schwalb pilot? but nothing worse, worse, powder gases fell from the NS-37 gunshot into the air intake tunnel and the attack often broke down because the engine began to cough, BUT these two divisions stood 38 parallel, and half a century later this border was proudly called ALLEY OF MIGS
                    “So you are more careful there.” ... well, I'm not bulk, especially since I have something to cover

                      I agree, there would be such an opportunity if Schwalbe had been technically and technologically brought to mind, their production and maintenance would have been debugged, its application tactics would be worked out, the infrastructure for them would be ready, and experienced cabins would sit and trained pilots, not take-off and landing ...
                      The MiG-15 pilots were just that different from the Schwalb pilots, so ours defended the 38th and the Yankees were kicked ass!

    Well, how much can one and the same. This article is already more elaborate, but why is Swallow compared to post-war aircraft? Naturally, a 42-year-old plane is worse than a 48-year-old plane, let's compare it with the MiG-29? Schalbe's classmates are Bell P-59 Airacomet, Gloster Meteor Mk III, MiG-9, Yak-15, La-150, and not Shuting Star, MiG-15 or Meteor on Dervents and Nina.
    The only thing I agree with is that the plane was still raw and its mass production was the agony of the Reich.

    Scandalous detail about the Me-262 - the American F-80 Shooting Star fighters, after five years of development in production and operation in the 1950-51 years, took an active part in the Korean War and made only during the first four months of 15000 sorties, but only as a light bomber, because when trying to use the F-80 as a fighter, he elementarily merged Yak-3 piston fighters, in which “North Korean” pilots flew, in battle.

    Therefore, having no analogs, the “Schwalbe” was lucky that they were not completely destroyed by Soviet fighters on the Eastern Front.

        Learn the materiel - the landing of American "UN" troops on the Korean Peninsula took place on 15 of September 1950 of the year, and the first MiG-15 took off only on 30 of November 1950 of the year, the MiG-15 completely replaced the Yak-3 only on 30 of December 1950 of the year.

        Therefore, I wrote about the first 15000 F-80 bombing sorties in less than four months of the 1950 year.

      Well, no matter how the Germans send Me-262 to the Eastern Front. They generally knew why it was built and for what purpose it should be used. Hundreds and thousands of “Fortresses” did not shine on the eastern front, which is why episodes of the famous Soviet pilots clash with the Me-262 can be counted on the fingers. And one hand will be more than enough.

          Kozhedub, by the way, never claimed to have shot down the Me-262; he was simply saying a jet destroyer. It was later thought up for him, but what kind of jet destroyer there could be besides Me-262. In Aviation and Cosmonautics there is a detailed analysis of what Kozhedub brought down then. Proofs like they like to express themselves now.

      because when trying to use the F-80 as a fighter, he elementarily merged in the battle the Yak-3 piston fighters, on which the "North Korean" pilots flew.
      - can I have proofs? Number of fights, loss ratio? Just do not need "Murzilka", preferably either ZhBD, or pilot reports.
      Research by historians speaks of fights with varying success:
      “Once again, only at the end of the raid, the Shutingstar attacked. Another air battle ensued. The Yakov couple, confidently taking the initiative in their own hands, attacked two F-80 from the 36-FBS 8-FBW, piloted by lieutenants John Thomas (1Lt John B. Thomas) and Charles Wurster (1LT. USAF Charles A. WURSTER) Wurster, taking advantage of the "jet" in speed out of the attack and took an advantageous position to attack. It was not difficult for the lieutenant to bring down Yak -9. A piston fighter pilot jumped out of the cockpit, but his parachute did not open. Enant Thomas noticed the enemy only after the leader of the couple yelled at him on the radio: “Bandit at six o'clock.” Thomas broke away from the enemy and began to try to get Yaku in the tail. To the surprise of the Americans, the North Korean pilot was not in a hurry to blow his legs, but began to impose tactics of maneuvering bends on turns. Nevertheless, Thomas was still able to get his opponent. The canopy of a parachute opened in the sky of Suwon - the pilot of the second “Yak” was more fortunate. As an additional confirmation of the victory, Thomas made several passes by a soaring Korean and shot him with a machine gun. In their reports on the battle, both Americans noted the aggressiveness and flying skills of the Jacob pilots. The public opinion of the squadron decided that two veterans of the Second World War, who fought in the air force of imperial Japan, were shot down. It really could have been pilots who moved from Zero to Yaki, but the “Soviet” Koreans were just as successful.
      A gracious picture of the official reports of American pilots about complete dominance is violated by the statement of the North Koreans about the two F-80C shot down in this battle.
      This is how volunteer historians of the 8 wing, Korean war veterans, Capt. Scott Miller and Sergeant John Sullivan tell about this battle.
      "On June 30, our planes attacked a marshalling yard near Suwon. Two pilots barely escaped death. Lutenant John Thomas's Shutingstar was damaged by anti-aircraft fire and Edwin Johnson had a taut cable. Both wing tanks and wingtips were torn off on Johnson's plane. Each three four torn through holes gaped in the wing, the visor and lantern were torn down. The upper part of the rudder and the vertical stabilizer were cut off, as well as half of the left elevator and horizontal stabilizer. At 13 000 feet (4,2) km.) the tail fell off the plane and Johnson was forced to jump. Leaving the plane, he hit the right stabilizer, which also fell off. Landing near Suwon, the pilot was picked up and transported to Itatsuk, escaping with a terrible headache. "
      So, no mention of the battle with enemy fighters, nor a “bandit” at six o’clock by Thomas (whom he didn’t even notice), Johnson strikes the cable itself near the ground and receives multiple damage to the aircraft (both wings, tail, upper fuselage) , rises to thousands of 4 on a crumbling plane and jumps out ... The described damage does not correspond much to damage from wires (through holes in the wings?), and, on the contrary, are very similar to the damage received as a result of a close-up shot of a gaping newcomer. And what sort of sorting station near Suwon did the Americans attack if the North Korean troops only crossed the Khan River that day? "
      (http://artofwar.ru/f/foreign/text_0680.shtml)
      And the fact that the F-80 was simply merged into the battle "is out of the question. As always and everywhere, the gasket was steering"!

    The benefits of swept wings appear only at high speeds. Much larger than those on which the Me262 and its opponents flew - piston fighters.

    At high speed, the swept wing is not an advantage, but the only opportunity to fly. Did the author hear anything about spontaneously pulling into an uncontrolled dive? This is the fate of all direct wing aircraft at high speed. Bi-1, in particular, is a confirmation. This effect and methods of dealing with it were studied in the USSR precisely on Me-262.

    Any war wins the one whose moral-political, military and economic potential will be higher than that of the enemy and it is reasonable to assume that the winner possesses the best weapons, both qualitatively and quantitatively. It is unlikely that anyone will object that the war was the impetus for the development of scientific and technological progress and the growth of industrial production of the warring countries.

    Not only improved weapons models were created, but also fundamentally new ones that changed the traditional views on the nature and methods of warfare, the strategy and tactics of war on land, at sea and in the air.

    The advent of the German fighter Me-262 and Me-163 brought aviation to a qualitatively new level. The strategy and tactics of conducting air combat, the conditions for combat use, the requirements for the equipment of cabs, the quality of weapons and airfield facilities have changed. A new independent type of aviation appeared - air defense fighter aircraft.

    You can talk a lot about the advantages and disadvantages of the Me-262 and Me-163, argue and quote excerpts from books to each other. Good. even though they’ve read it, it’s now more important to rethink and understand what has been read and it’s more difficult. One thing remains certain - these machines were the first and in practice proved their capabilities in battle. All the rest (English “Gloucester Meteor”, American “Shooting Star”, “Benshi”, “Panther”, “Saber”, Soviet Yak-15, MiG-9, MiG-15) were created in peacetime and were more reliable and perfect . The experience of their combat use led to the adoption of guided and high-precision weapons.

      [quote = rubin6286] It is unlikely that anyone will object that the war was the impetus for the development of scientific and technological progress and the growth of industrial production of the warring countries.

      Of course, it is difficult to object to technological progress, looking at the jet plane with a bashfully hidden swastika on the keel and recalling the pre-war wooden biplanes. However, technological progress has also created an atomic bomb.
      It is unlikely that millions of those killed in the war would like to be at the cost of the development of technological progress.
      And here the question arises.
      Am I, you or any commentator on the forum ready to sacrifice my life, the lives of my children, grandchildren, close people for the sake of technological progress? In order to, after some time, the surviving people admire the weapons that killed you, and talk about an incredible leap in technological progress?
      I think the question is rhetorical.

        Dear Simple Belarus!

        You asked me not a rhetorical, but rather strange, if not stupid question: “Am I, you or any commentator at the Forum ready to sacrifice my life, the lives of my children, grandchildren, close people for the sake of technological progress?”

        Are you healthy?

        In the past war, the motivation was different and quite simple - some wanted to be masters and own the world, others for this had to become slaves. In June 1941, Belarus was the first on the path of fascist hordes. Those who resisted slavery were ruthlessly destroyed, regardless of gender and age. People were driven into captivity, shot, starved, but people did not submit. Every fourth Belarusian died, but in response to the mass atrocities there was a total destruction of the occupiers and their minions from among the policemen and traitors, barracks burned, warehouses of property, food and material supplies, flew downhill trains with personnel, weapons and equipment, railways, bridges, roads were destroyed. In fact, there were no “neutral” people in the territory occupied by the enemy. Some fought the enemy openly or underground, others, due to the prevailing circumstances, were forced to work for the invaders, carrying out acts of sabotage, while others chose the path of betrayal and cooperation with punishers.

        I don’t speak the Belarusian language and ask you to forgive me for spelling, but in the Belarusian partisan song there are such words: “... For bondage, for kaidans, cutters of Hitlertsau filthy, they didn’t resurrect the age of yana.”

        And what is scientific and technological progress? He is international. The swastika on the keel can be painted over, but not painted over the talent of designers. engineers, technicians, workers who created weapons. Their guilt in the fact that it then served no criminal purposes, since similar weapons were created in other countries. The Rauff brothers, the creators of the gas chamber, are war criminals who have received well-deserved punishment, but it never occurred to anyone to judge Ferdinand Porsche, E. Heikel, G. Schmeiser, etc.

        Talent is either there or not, it is, as they say, from God, and skill is not bought or sold. It is acquired, improved, inherited or dies with the owner.

            This year we will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the victory of the Soviet people over fascist Germany and militaristic Japan in the Great Patriotic War. Less and less of its participants are still alive, but people remember how much the right to life and freedom was won and how the song says: “As long as I remember, I live!” The losers also remember the war, primarily because for any nation, war is a disaster that brings pain, suffering and the bitterness of loss to every family. At the end of the First World War, the international community developed a number of legal norms, called the Conventions that govern the rules of warfare on land, at sea and in the air, the obligations of the parties to treat civilians, prisoners of war, the work of the International Organization of the Red Cross, etc. Persons and organizations that knowingly violate these legal norms are war criminals and are subject to trial by the International Tribunal. The Wehrmacht, Kriegsmarine, Luftwaffe are not considered by the world community to be criminal organizations, in contrast to the SS and its divisions - SD, Gestapo. Therefore, it is wrong and unacceptable to declare the entire surviving enemy army criminals and demand reprisals against it at the end of the war.

            Winner is characterized by generosity and mercy. I have no doubt that the Ukrainian, Baltic nationalists who collaborated with the enemy Chechens, Ingush, Karachais, Crimean Tatars, Georgians and Vlasovites, whose guilt of war crimes was proved, suffered a deserved punishment.

            The fact that nationalism revived in Ukraine and the Baltic states in the 2000s was primarily the fault of the Soviet party leadership in the center and in the localities, illiterate and ossified, hiding behind sophisticated demagogy and Marxist-utopian phraseology .. Serious omissions were made in the development of the economy countries, the decline in the standard of living of peoples, national politics and their final result was the collapse of the USSR.

            With the transition to a market economy, negative trends in the communication of people, a decline in the authority of the family, and a reappraisal of universal human values ​​emerged. The lack of respect for the person of work has led to the development of the cult of profit, degradation and exposure of the vices of society - prostitution, theft of public funds, multi-level corruption, bribery, organized crime, etc. The appearance of the “boy from Urengoy” is a vivid evidence of the degradation of the educational system, culture and family education in the country.
            The lack of measures of state coercion and censorship in the media, legal education of the population contributes to the formation of an atmosphere of licentiousness and permissiveness.

            This is the case in today's Russia. I think that you have it.
            The interest of young people in flight simulators and the discussion of topics on the VO website testifies to their interest in the flight profession, especially among those who, for whatever reason, were unable to fulfill their dreams. Agree, this is better than using certain drugs, smelling glue, changing your traditional orientation and becoming a carrier of sexually transmitted diseases, or joining criminal groups like AUE.

            In fact, the Russian language called the mentally abnormal, mentally retarded people miserable. Do you think that all commentators on the site are so? And who are you then?

        By the way, Oleg in his second "anti-fascist" opus about the "Schwalbe" no longer mentions the chassis.
        But the fact is that the layout is never a fascist or Nazi or Hitler.
        Layout - is more successful or less in the light of certain requirements. And aluminum also does not know whether it is fascist or Soviet, or maybe democratic. Know yourself performs its functions of forming a crystal lattice. The plane is just a complex construction that incorporates the work of many people. Performs its function - takes off and lands. And here comes the propaganda. How to evaluate - this is a problem on the aircraft and its designers, and each is a personal matter.
        How good is a twin-engine layout like a Schwalbe and a dozen other jet aircraft? Even in the screw era, it became clear that in the nose, free from the engine, you can place:
        1. Battery of 4 guns (mosquito, bofayter, Bf-110, etc., etc.)
        2. The same thing + radar.
        3. The cabin of the navigator.
        So they were placed on jet aircraft in the same way as on propeller aircraft. )
        Moreover, under the center wing in the fuselage, you can arrange a bomb bomb.
        So they arranged it.

          It is very simple: in 1939-1942 they had no idea how to calculate correctly complex channels of air intakes. Therefore, they were made as simple as possible.

            Complex channels appeared simultaneously with powerful engines.
            On low-power turbojet engines, the channels are as short as possible to reduce losses. And while the channels were long, the speed was low. )



            Here is a similar design by Wilina of Professor Heinkel. So read not Kaptsov’s troll-trills, but the usual encyclopedia, since now it’s not 40 thick volumes, but just a bookmark in the browser.

              Here is the first jet in the world - Gloucester Pioneer. Due to a weak engine, high losses in a long air channel result in a speed of 755 km per hour, and guns in the wing at best.

              didn't understand sir

              I kind of wrote in Russian in white that the Germans chose a scheme with as short and simple channels as possible in order to fully use the engine thrust (because the 262 has two under the wings, including)
              at the same time, it is presumed that the arrogant Saxons were tormented with channels that are not only longer, but most importantly have a more complex form, which then could not be qualitatively calculated

              we don’t know what the Nagnolaxes have an abnormally high loss due to turbulence, etc., but we presume that for 262 the absence of problems with air intakes, the first reason to consider to find out why it was faster

    I have a replica here ...
    Schwalbe was created as a fighter-interceptor, and its main task was to deal with bombers. And not even with something relatively small like the “Mitchells” or “Boston”, but with “fortresses” and “liberators”, large, strong, well-armed machines, walking in a dense defensive order, and even under the guise of fighters. It was possible to fight them only with the “hit and run” tactics, without getting involved in the “dog dump” with the “Thunderbolts” and “Mustangs”. And this tactic Me-262 quite successfully used, using its high speed and very powerful weapons. By the way, the allies for the fight against bombers are twin-engine vehicles with whole batteries of guns, which in one gulp could destroy that “Heinkel”, that “Junkers”, that FW-200 “Condor”. And in addition to the well-deserved Lightnings, the Mosquitoes and the Bofayters were completely hunting for the Germans. Even in the USSR there was a heavy Pe-3 fighter, near Stalingrad, successfully hunting for transporters, supplying the 6th army. Only for all of these machines, speed was not critical, because the Germans organized escort and cover quite poorly due to the lack of the necessary techniques and orders.
    And after the war, there was the same heavy fighter jet, with two engines, which along the way (like the Meteor) served as a bomber and high-speed reconnaissance aircraft. From it, by the way, they licked the layout for the Yak-25. Sud-Ouest Aviation (SNCASO) SO 4050 Vautour II

    [i] Given the scanty number of Yak-25s built, as well as their "long" career in the Air Force, it should be recognized: apparently, this model did not receive recognition because of its features. It is possible that other fighters with engine nacelles placed under the planes were born within the walls of the design bureau, but not one became massive and successful. [Quote] [/ quote]
    And what do you have against the Yak-25 in service with the machine stood for 12 years ... Scanty series? But it's like 638 cars ... minuscule? What about the Yak-28? More than a thousand vehicles ... modifications from an interceptor to a bomber. The Me 262, Meteor, and others were faced with a different task: is it possible to build a serial jet fighter or not? It turned out you can. Then it was up to other cars.

    the British brought the engines only after the war, if the German engineers had the same conditions, whose question would be better

    In the USSR, before the war, Lyulka and Uvarov were engaged in gas turbine engines. Uvarov was engaged in turboprop, Cradle GTD. At Lulka, by the time the war began, the engine had a degree of readiness in the region of 70%. The fact that our work on gas turbine engines met strong resistance from the side of the "piston" is also a fact. Take at least the same "technical miracle" in the form of the Balandin's engine. Money was lowered for a "long whistle into space." The USSR lagged behind the Western countries very seriously, the legacy of the tsarist regime. Buying a Rolls-Royce license is the right decision for our management.
    I see no reason to "break the spears" about the English or German GTE, the engines were "raw" had both positive and negative sides. Betting on “miracle weapons” is always dangerous; you can not frailly get an opponent who has obsolete weapons but is more motivated. So all the disputes on these articles are about nothing.

    Well, of course, not the Me-109K as one. There was another option with the Fokke-Wulfs-190. But, in general, the author is right. The debate about the development strategy of the German Air Force in the conditions of the last year of the war is a pointless question. And not only because both options are worse. This is also why. that you won’t be able to reverse the war with just one aircraft, but on the ground the Germans were losing steadily and without options. So what difference does it make in the Luftwaffe? In the best case, this would have dragged on the struggle in the West, but in the East, the storming of Berin would have started anyway in April 1945. So the subject of conversation is the same as the Tigers against increasing the output of the modernized Quartet.

        I already told you that immediately after the first use of the Me-262 against US-British bombers, they began to use the simplest tactical technique - sharp maneuvering at the very beginning of the Me-262 attack.

        As a result, they have almost twice as fast speed (800 km / h), close to zero maneuverability (due to surging engines and a small tail area) and cannon-guns with mortar ballistics (4-meter fall of the projectile path at 100 meters of distance firing) "Schwalbe" elementarily slipped the line of fire, after which, in the worst case, they became victims of numerous machine guns of bombers or, in the best case, returned for refueling to their airfield (a concrete runway of which length 1200 meters attracted enemy bombers like a magnet).

        PS And yes, the employees of the Messerschmidt public relations department were great masters in promoting branded products on the Third Reich market. laughing

          - proof with balancing curves and dependence of alpha crit on speed is possible?

              states the following:

              "in tests, the cannon shell at a distance of 1000 meters required exceeding the line of sight in 41 meters. But at distances 200-300 meters flew quite heap and straightforward. "
              Who to believe? To nobody. Better check.
              Thus, without a table of excess of the trajectory over the aiming line, taking into account the flight altitude and the speed of the carrier, to say something definite is not serious. A table in the studio! Or let your statement be considered (no offense said!) A chatter.

                You need to be in the subject in order to understand what is written in the proofs from the English-language Pedovikia, which were in the comments, but you did not read them / did not understand:
                - to ensure maneuverability at a speed of more than 800 km / h under the Me-262 thrust-to-weight ratio, the wing sweep angle should be increased by 2,5 times (as was demonstrated by the example of the MiG-15);
                - at the same time, ridges must be mounted on the wings to prevent stalling, and the area of ​​the stabilizer and rudder must be multiplied (again, see MiG-15);
                - the engine must be equipped with an anti-surge air path and a combustion chamber (see copy of the English engine on the MiG-15).

                The designers of the Third Reich did not find these solutions due to the lack of a several-year time reserve (in addition to the four years spent) on research on innovations in aerodynamics and engine building, which appeared at foreign designers after the end of WWII. This is the adventurism of the Germans.

    there at the end is the frontal Mustang (6 * 12.7mm in wings) and Schwalby (4 thirty in the nose) - a movie is such a movie ...

    When discussing Me.262, an impenetrable argument pops up: the Germans were the first - is not it so? Yes, there were Meteor and P80, but the German was the first jet aircraft to take an active part in hostilities. The rest looked closely and tried on. Well, the first pancake turned out to be somewhat lumpy, but nonetheless - he is the first.

      Moreover, many design decisions of modern jet engines grow precisely from German designs.
      The trouble of the Germans, I write for the umpteenth time, is precisely in the wrong desire for progress.
      Comparing the 262nd and P80 is incorrect. The American was created as a response to the German and the war, despite the genius of Johnson, he was late. The meteor had centrifugal engines. It is precisely the axial compressor, which fully proved itself in the bright future, that caused the failure of German aviation.
      By the way, returning to the swept wing. Such a wing with a sweep of 35 degrees is completely German development. And the USSR and the USA and England very soon broke away from this bitch :)!
      But the title of this article is correct. The advantage that aviation of the USSR and allies had made it possible to simply ignore even the best German aircraft.
      And yet, about the redanna scheme. But nothing that F4, the very one, was built on it ?!

    "The advantages of swept wings are manifested only at high speeds. Much greater than those on which the Me.262 and its opponents, piston fighters, flew"
    In fact, the swept wing has advantages just when approaching supersonic. Further, a very thin direct profile drives quite well. And then, you reproached the 262nd precisely for the lack of an arrow-shaped wing.
