In the bomber attack role, the Me-262 has one major advantage: it's speed! Dosent matter how you cut the cake, in order to beat an opponent you must be able to keep it in range. Statistics say that the Me-262 could reach about 878 Km/h which makes it a very useful weapon against the slow, bulky bombers. But again (I dont know how many times it has been said in this forum) the major problem for the plane was it's lack in numbers and capable pilots. But let's just imagine for a second that germany had been able to fix all the bugs and their numbers were as big as the Nazis would have wanted them to be! Entire squadrons of Me-262 could take off before the Alied bombers reached their destination and rain on them from above (or below, that is a possible tactic) and fire round after round into the poor slow bombers and then fly off so fast that the escort fighters would not be able to catch up. And if by any chance they would catch up, the Me-262 pilots could use their speed as an advantage to take out the piston fighters. So really, the Me-262 had potential to be a amasing war machine. Had it not been for all those silly bugs in the plane, the air would have been a very dangerous place for Alied pilots.
