The WWII planes are a wonderful achievement; Their engineering is still believed today. They are in different ways in comparison with those present. They are light, fast and deadly. To name the best is somewhat controversial and passions run high in doing so. There are many greats here in my top 3.
# 3: North American P-51 Mustang
Introduced in 1942 the sole seat of this long-range fighter is one of America's best airplanes at the time. It has the highest speed of 370 MPH and is armed with 4 20 mm canon. Its amazing range and it maneuverably maneuver it an edge in the competition. This combination combined with speed made it well in the air to fight the battle. The Mustang exaltation is also proven through its long life that it retired to 84, but still in civil use.
# 2 Focke-Wulf FW 190
This plane of single seat piston engine was introduced in 1941. Tools of 2-7.9mm MG, 4-20mm cannon. It has the highest speed of 395 MPH. It was made in exchange for Messerschmitt Bf 109. Its magnificence was able to do almost anything. It's not only good in air defense, but made an amazing fighter-bomber, near-support aircraft; and photo-reconnaissance spy plane. It is also wiped out by the third biggest ounce of all time, Gunther Rall. It was lost first because it retired early in 1945.
# 1 Messerschmitt Bf 109
Told to be one of the first modern fighter, this German light weight is a wonderful peace of machinery. With the highest speed of 354 and armed 2-7.9mm fuselage gun, 2-20mm wing cannons. Although this spectacle can not be read aloud like Focke-Wulf or mustang, it must first be because it cuts out the greatest number of enemies in WWII. It was also hit by the top 2 greatest aces of all time, Eric Hartmann and Gerhard Barkhorn. Intelligence comes from its simplicity; The concept of the plane is to fit the largest engine on the smallest plane, making it light weight and fast. The simple and straight forward concept that made this plane one of the best and a fierce competition. It was sadly retired in 1965.
These 3 great airplanes are made of art, they are still considered today. Their concepts are straightforward and clean. That's what makes them the 3 greatest WWII planes.
Again thank you for your consideration.
