  • About the Me 163 Komet – Rocket-Powered Interceptor:

    The first and only tailless rocket-powered interceptor to see operational service, the Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet had little actual effect on the outcome of WWII but was the first piloted aircraft of any type to exceed 1000 km/h in level flight. In combat, however, there were some additional issues; firstly, the aircraft’s speed and short range gave pilots a very small window to intercept Allied Bombers. Secondly, the two MK 108 30mm cannons had such a slow rate of fire that hitting a target on the initial pass was nearly impossible. Although solutions to these issues were explored, they were not successfully implemented by the war’s end.

    In an additional interesting note, Dr. Alexander Lippisch (a German aeronautical engineer and major contributor to the Komet project) was present at the U.S. Army Air Forces facility at Muroc dry lake in California on May 3, 1946 as a result of Operation Paperclip when one of five Me 163s was test flown by the United States.
