Description Edit | History

The Heinkel He 162 Volksjäger (German, "People's Fighter") was a German single-engine, jet-powered fighter aircraft fielded by the Luftwaffe in World War II. Designed and built quickly, and made primarily of wood as metals were in very short supply and prioritized for other aircraft, the He 162 was nevertheless the fastest of the first generation of Axis and Allied jets. Volksjäger was the Reich Air Ministry's official name for the He 162. Other names given to the plane include Salamander, which was the codename of its construction program, and Spatz ("Sparrow"), which was the name given to the plane by Heinkel.

As Described In

Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe: Unlike all other aircraft, the He 162 had no maintenance problems, because the Luftwaffe considered the aircraft to be disposable. Any damaged or malfunctioning aircraft were simply to be replaced by the thousands of He 162s due to come off the assembly lines. In fact, the average combat life of the He 162 was projected to be only five to ten hours! As a result, few spare parts were produced for the He 162.
