A “(P)” indicates the aircraft never achieved service. Some aircraft have multiple entries for different variants.
Some aircraft that “entered service” did so in very small numbers – Doflug D-3803, 1 produced!
Aircraft are arranged first by year of first flight, then alphabetically by manufacturer. This means that not all aircraft are arranged by exact chronological order. Dates are of first flight not service entry.
Many of the WWII German aircraft have extremely variable – and confusing! – armaments.
In the late-40s/early-50s the ‘night fighter’ designation became obselete as all fighters were fitted with radar.
In 1962 the U.S. Navy aircraft were re-designated (ie, F3D to F-10) and all numbers re-started from “F-1”.
Aircraft names in “” (La-7 “Fin”) are the NATO codenames assigned to Soviet and Chinese aircraft.
AB – Afterburner…TJ – Turbojet…TF – Turbofan…”carrier” – flown from aircraft carriers…
MG – Machine gun…MR – Multi-role…DC – Depth charge…VTOL – Vertical TakeOff/Landing…
V/STOL – Vertical/Short Take-Off/Landing…STOVL – Short Take-Off/Vertical Landing
