11 Secret Weapons Developed By Japan During World War 2 Japanese rocket fighter Me262

"Henschel's Hs 132 was a World War II dive bomber and interceptor aircraft [...] The unorthodox design featured a top-mounted BMW 003 jet engine (identical in terms of make and position to the powerplant used by the Heinkel He 162) and the pilot in a prone position. The Soviet Army occupied the factory just as the Hs 132 V1 was nearing flight testing, the V2 and V3 being 80% and 75% completed."

https://flic.kr/p/rfMTxV | BAe Hawk XX337 | The Hawk entered RAF service in April 1976, replacing the Folland Gnat and Hawker Hunter for advanced training and weapons training. The Hawk T1 was the original version used by the RAF, deliveries commencing in November 1976. The most famous users of the Hawk are the Red Arrows aerobatic team, who adopted the plane in 1979. From 1983 to 1986, some Hawks were equipped as short-range interceptor aircraft. 88 T1s were modified to carry two AIM-9L…

Republic XF-91 Thunderceptor (1949)(originally designated XP-91) was a mixed-propulsion prototype interceptor aircraft, developed by Republic Aviation. The aircraft would use a jet engine for most flight, and a cluster of four small rocket engines for added thrust during climb and interception. The design was largely obsolete by the time it was completed due to the rapidly increasing performance of contemporary jet engines, and only two prototypes were built. One of these was the first US…

Lavochkin La-250 "Anakonda". High-altitude interceptor aircraft prototype developed in the Soviet Union in 1956. It was made as the first fighter that could carry the new heavy G-300 (870Kg each missile). To the moment they were forced to use bombers to carry them. After the introduction of the La-250, the propulsion system of the missiles was lightened and perfected. They could follow the enemy guided by radar at 3.900Km/h.

The Gloster Javelin was a twin-engined T-tailed delta-wing subsonic night and all-weather interceptor aircraft that served with Britain's Royal Air Force from the mid-1950s and until the late 1960s. The last aircraft design to bear the Gloster name, it was introduced in 1956 after a lengthy development period and received several upgrades during its lifetime to its engines, radar and weapons…

Lavochkin La-250 (1956) "Anakonda" was a high-altitude interceptor aircraft prototype developed in the Soviet Union in the 1950s. Its nickname anaconda was "invented" during the flight test and referred to both the elongated body shape as well as the relatively critical flight characteristics of the machine.
