Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 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 "generations" of fighter aircraft are a relatively modern concept based on claims for "Fifth Generation" fighters. They are rough categories based on similar designs and do not correspond to a rigid definition.
