    “The father of (various) post-war jet fighters!”Not really.It bears a passing resemblance to the SAAB “Tunnan”,but even that was entirely an independent creation.

    Father of modern jets= Me262?

    Eh, the US and the UK had jet fighters they were testing before the 262 ever saw combat.

    Where they ever put into combat,on the scale that the 262 was put into?

    Does that change the fact that they were developed independent of the ME262’s existence?

    I don’t know how many the Brits had, but the Meteor saw combat, and was put into operation only a couple months behind the 262.

    The Meteors chased V-1`s over the English country side.In the final months of the war they deployed a short squadron on the continent.They were not allowed to cross the front lines in fear of the possibility of being shot down and the Germans gaining their technology.Not that it would have mattered at that point.Oddly enough,the British continued to produce the Meteor until 1953.Long after they were completely obsolete.

    They were using a different type of jet engine that wasn’t practical.

    Hortons were superior and looked waaay cooler; luckily for the Allies they were just too late in the game to make a difference.

    Now Horton`s design IS the ancestor of several modern designers.

    Their “flying wing” design became our modern “lifting body” B-2A Spirit stealth bombers, they were waaaay ahead of their time.

    Aerodynamics versus stealth technology?They had both.They did not understand that certain configurations of aircraft had an inherent stealthy capability.They just realized that aerodynamics was a key to speed.
