【 A Style of its Own 】  As desperation set in the German forces late in WWII, a call for new lightweight, inexpensive, using single jets, and of course easy to fly planes went out in September 1944. It took an amazing short period of time only 3 months from the very first designs to the first flight of the prototype Heinkel He162. The lightweight fighter featured mainly wooden construction and was powered by a 800kg BMW003 turbojet engine, having a 838km/h top speed. Reaching combat units in late March 1945, the little fighter managed to record some combat successes despite the acute fuel and parts shortage.
