:"Developed as a fighter
additional to the Me-109G as provided by the Germans, Finland
designed the PM-1 Pyöremyrsky (Violent storm) during WW II
It was constructed of wood and fitted with a German
Daimler-Benz DB-605A engine. Also propeller, radio equipement and
instrumentation were of German origin. When the PM-1 prototype was
completed, the war was over and basically there was no need any
longer for this type of piston-engined fighter. Only one PM-1
prototype was built, which made its first flight on November 21, 1945.
The PM-1 is now part of the collection of the air force museum at Tampere."
