Valtion PM.3 Pyörremyrsky

06/15/2005. Remarks by Nico Braas:"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."
