    I dont know but my guess is that its because of
    The messerschmitt 262 was fast thats its virtues.
    And the P-61 was a good interceptor.

    but anything could turn inside a -262 and whilst speed is vital in a dogfight, so is manouverability.............

    and there are far better intorcepters than the -61...........

    Sure there are better ones than the P-61, but no one said you have to pick the best ones. I choose my favourites (note the Battle, Morane and Defiant ;) - rather worst than the best :p ).

    I choose them because I like them, as toffigd has said. They may not be the best, I could say others, I was considering the Heinkel HE-219 "Uhu" for night interceptor or the Ta-152 for interceptor but I prefered the 2 I choose.
