    Five generations of fighters

    Now there are two ways of looking at what they call the five generations of fighters.
    1st Generation. First World War era.
    2nd Generation. Between the wars.
    3rd Generation. Second World War.
    4th Generation. The jet age since the war.
    5th Generation. Today.

    Now the United Stated has lately coined the phrase 5th Generation fighter.
    They mean Jet Fighter. So what are the five generations.

    1] Dawn of the jet age.

    2] Capable of supersonic speed in level flight.

    3] Precision guided munitions

    4]Stealth technology

    5]Today's multi role fighter

    The generations attached to fighters are from the dawn of the jet age. It did not exists before WWII.

    First generation subsonic jet fighters (mid-1940s to mid-1950s)

    Second generation jet fighters (mid-1950s to early 1960s)

    Third generation jet fighters (early 1960s to circa 1970)

    Fourth generation jet fighters (circa 1970 to mid-1990s)

    4.5th generation jet fighters (1990s to the present)

    Fifth generation jet fighters (2005 to the present)

    Relax Yusuf. The two examples are completely separate and are accurate.

    Sorry about the double up. I am having trouble with the software hosting. Fixed it now.

    First generation jet fighter

    The Me 262, the first jet fighter

    [​IMG]

    Aircraft classified as first generation jet fighters are the first attempts at creation of military aircraft using jet engines. A few were developed during the closing days of World War II but saw very limited combat operations. The generation can be split into two broad groups: World War II era fighters such as the Me 262 and mature first generation fighters such as the F-86 used in the Korean War.

    The significant operational aircraft in this group include:

    * Flag of Germany Nazi Germany
    o Messerschmitt Me 262
    o Heinkel He 162
    * United Kingdom
    o Gloster Meteor

    Other aircraft were built or developed during the war, did not see combat. Many entered general service in the immediate post-war years. Examples include:

    * France
    o Dassault Ouragan
    * United Kingdom
    o de Havilland Vampire
    o Hawker Sea Hawk
    o Supermarine Attacker
    * United States
    o Bell P-59 Airacomet
    o Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star
    o McDonnell FH Phantom
    o Ryan Aeronautical FR Fireball
    * Soviet Union
    o Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-9 'Fargo'
    o Yakovlev Yak-15/17 'Feather'
