FSX/P3D – Hawker Tempest VI. The Tempest VI was an extremely effective air supremacy fighter, and many Luftwaffe jet pilots clearly stated it was the only Allied aircraft they feared in equal air-to-air combat. Although the Me-262 had a higher top speed, the Tempest’s sheer, brute acceleration potential at low altitude enabled it to overtake a cruising Me-262 in straight level flight. The end of the war led to many aircraft programs being cut back intensively, and only 142 aircraft being completed. The Tempest VI holds the distinction of being the last piston-engined fighter in operational service with the RAF, having been superseded by jet propelled aircraft.
