Heinkel He 162 Salamander

Designed to be produced cheaply in large quantity, the prototype He 162 Salamander first flew in 1944 and entered combat in April 1945.  Put into production "off the drawing board", about 100 had been produced by war's end with 800 in various stages of completion.

The He 162 was more popularly called the Volksjaeger (People's Fighter).
