Top Ten Most Deadly World War II Fighter Planes on the Eastern Front

The Top Ten Most Deadly World War II Fighter Planes on the Eastern Front

1 North American P-51 Mustang

The fastest propeller fighter on the front with one of the heaviest armament, good ol' USA really smacked the Germans with an extremely deadly plane. - MattAffterburner

2 Messerschmitt BF-109

Due to there being no turbos in the engine, it could fly higher than the Brit planes without stalling, and could dive on bombers and shred them to pieces. - MattAffterburner

3 Supermarine Spitfire

The Spitfire had a large armament, and was ruggedly tough, gaining multiple kills in the Battle of Britain. - MattAffterburner

4 Republic P-47 Thunderbolt

THE heaviest armament in the war, with 4.50 cals on EACH WING, it was also one of the heaviest planes. It could survive nearly anything, including being shot at by a boyfriend-109 UNTIL IT RA OUT OF AMMO! IF the same boyfriend-109 had one of these guys on its tale, it would probably go down with one burst. It took the most on the Battle of the Bulge. - MattAffterburner

5 De Havilland Mosquito

It was the only Canadian fighter in the war, and was the fastest fighter before the Spitfire and Mustang. A huge armament, it really stung the Germans in the beginning. See what I did there? - MattAffterburner

6 Lockheed P-38 Lightning

It was very fast and had a long range, was a great early escort fighter - MattAffterburner

7 Fockwulfe FW-190

It was essentially the boyfriend-109s big brother, it had a larger armament and range. - MattAffterburner

8 Messerschmitt ME-262

The first jet fighter, it was so fast no one could really catch it. The downside was it needed to refuel many times over and if you shot an engine, the whole plane blew up. - MattAffterburner

9 Messerschmitt BF-110

Germany's heavy fighter, it could kill anything and was also great as a fighter bomber. It was only used early on the war however. It was also, unfortunately, outrun by the Spitfire after it was developed. - MattAffterburner

10 Hawker Hurricane

It was under performing against the boyfriend-110, but as it was still a traditional skin over frame body, it was easy to repair and was likely that a bullet could miss the frame and only puncture the skin, making harder to shoot down. - MattAffterburner
