World War II Aircraft

Fighters

Small, fast, and agile, fighters struggled for air superiority in all theaters of the war.

Bombers and Attack Aircraft

Regardless of being ground attack aircraft, dive bombers, torpedo bombers, or heavy bombers, these aircraft dropped terror from the sky against ground targets and ships alike.

Other

Aircraft of other classifications, whether transports, spotters, or flying boats, contributed to the war as much as their higher-profile combat-capable siblings.
