Bf 109H-2 and H-5 developments were also planned, but the entire H-series was scrapped because of wing flutter problems. May 28, 2018 - Explore Todd Jenest's board "Messerschmitt BF 109" on Pinterest. This tail unit was standardised on G-10s and K-4s. The RLM ordered Messerschmitt to rationalise production of the Bf 109, consolidating parts and types to produce a standard model with more interchangeable parts and equipment; flaws in the design of the airframe were also to be remedied. Diese Waffe war sporadisch bereits in der G-Serie verwendet worden je nach Verfügbarkeit. [12][13] Messerschmitt is listed as having produced only four Bf 109Ds, probably the D-0 preproduction series with the serial production transferred to the licensed manufacturers. It was commonly referred to as the Me 109 after its designer, Willy Messerschmitt. The basic armament was to be two 20 mm MG 151/20 cannons (with 120 rpg) and two MK 103 cannons mounted in the nose. The undercarriage legs were altered so that the wheel's vertical axis was nearly upright rather than being parallel with the oleo leg. Hello there, As to how, here is a Bf-109E Cutaway drawing : And : The Bf-109 (all models) made use of a reduction gearbox to transfer power to the propeller from the engine. As noted above, Czech pilots who had previously flown Spitfires for the RAF nicknamed the aircraft Mezek ("Mule"). The Bf 109TL received intensive research. While making an evasive manoeuvre, the wings broke away and Balthasar was killed when his aircraft hit the ground. Subsequent Bf 109G versions were essentially modified versions of the basic G-6 airframe. DIE MESSERSCHMITT Bf 109 G DAS MODELL 3 Dieser Ausgabe liegen die ersten Bauteile für die zweite Tragfläche Ihrer Messerschmitt Bf 109 G bei. Enlarging the existing nose-mounted radiator sufficiently to cool the engine would have created extra weight and drag, negating some of the performance gains afforded by the increased power, so it was decided to move the main radiators to the undersurfaces of the wings immediately outboard of the junction of the wing root and wing panel, just forward of the trailing edges' inner ends, leaving the oil cooler under the nose in a small, streamlined duct. Both were the basis of the Bf 109 E-3 version. If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it. The K-14 was to be powered by the two-stage supercharged DB 605L engine, using a four-bladed propeller. Modifications included a reinforced wing structure, an internal bullet-proof windscreen, the use of heavier, welded framing for the cockpit transparencies, and additional light-alloy armour for the fuel tank. Ohne Zweifel war die Focke-Wulf 190 ein hervorragendes und konstruktiv hochmodernes Jagdflugzeug. The engine was designed for it. Jedoch auch ohne diese (ausbaubaren) Zusatzwaffen war der Geschwindigkeitsvorteil vieler alliierter Vergleichsmuster erheblich und gefährlich, oftmals noch zusätzlich verstärkt durch eine höhere Wendigkeit und Agilität. Work on the new version began in the spring of 1943 and the prototype was ready by autumn. V22 also became the testbed for the pre-production DB 601E. Die Messerschmitt Me 109 (korrekter Bf 109) war eines der meistgebauten Jagdflugzeuge im 20. 760 km/h (470 mph), and an operational altitude of 12,000 m (39,000 ft) was projected. A new ejector exhaust arrangement was incorporated, and on later aircraft a metal shield was fitted over the left hand banks to deflect exhaust fumes away from the supercharger air-intake. If you took off too fast it would turn [roll] ninety degrees away. Leistung: Höchstgeschwindigkeit 621 km/h in 7000 m Höhe; Dienstgipfelhöhe 11.750 m; Reichweite bis zu 998 … From the beginning to the end, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was ever willing and able. The Bf 109G continued to be improved: new clear-view cockpits, greater firepower in the form of the 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 108 cannon were introduced in late 1943; and a new, enlarged supercharger in the high-altitude DB 605AS engine, a larger vertical stabilizer (G-5 onwards), and MW 50 power boost in 1944. [90] The rear cockpit canopy was bowed out to give the instructor, who sat behind the student pilot in an armoured seat, a clearer view. A bullet-resistant windscreen could be fitted as an option. A semi-retractable tailwheel was fitted and the main undercarriage legs were raked forward by six degrees to improve the ground handling. It was found that the performance of the T-2 was closely comparable to the E-4/N and, because of its ability to take off and land in shorter distances, these fighters were assigned to I/JG.77, deployed in Norway on landing strips which were both short and subject to frequent, powerful cross-winds. Communications equipment was the FuG 7 Funkgerät 7 (radio set) short-range radio apparatus, effective to ranges of 48–56 km (30–35 mi). „Sofern es die Umstände erlaubten“. The engineers at the Messerschmitt facilities took two Bf 109 E-1 airframes and installed this new powerplant. Because the radiators were mounted near the trailing edge of the wing, coinciding with the increased speed of the airflow accelerating around the wing camber, cooling was more effective than that of the Jumo engined 109s, albeit at the cost of extra ducting and piping, which was vulnerable to damage. Aircraft could be modified in the factory with Umrüst-bausatz (Umbau) conversion kits or by adding extra equipment, called Rüstzustand,[citation needed] to convert standard airframes for special roles, a reconnaissance or bad-weather fighter, for example. To incorporate the new radiators, the wings were almost completely redesigned and reinforced, with several inboard ribs behind the spar being cut down to make room for the radiator ducting. Technische Daten Bf 109G-6. Several other versions were projected based on the 109K airframe – K-6, K-8, K-10 and K-14. Ebert, Hans A., Johann B. Kaiser and Klaus Peters. Several G-2s were fitted with the ETC 500 bomb rack, capable of carrying one 250 kg (550 lb) bomb. Triebwerk: ein 12 Zylinder Reihenmotor (A-Form) Daimler Benz DB 605AM mit GM-1-Einspritzanlage und einer Startleistung von 1800 PS. [87] The radio antenna mast was also removed from atop the rear fuselage turtledeck, and replaced with a standard late-war Luftwaffe ventral whip aerial antenna under the wing. [66], A total of 167 G-1s were built between February and June 1942,[67] 1,586 G-2s between May 1942 and February 1943, and one further G-2 was built in Győr, Hungary, in 1943. Der Kurvenradius einer Hawker „Tempest“ Mk. [21] The E-4 was also available as a fighter-bomber with equipment very similar to the previous E-1/B. [103][Notes 5] A wide-chord, three-bladed VDM 9-12159A propeller of 3 m (9.8 ft) diameter was used, as on the G-6/AS, G-14/AS and G-10. Some K-6 prototypes were built and tested at the Erprobungstelle Tarnewitz weapons-testing centre on the Baltic coast. D.(Luft) T.2109 Bf 109 G-6/U4 Flugzeug handbuch, Tei 0: Allgemeine Angaben. Dies gilt sowohl für die Supermarine „Spitfire“ (zumindest des Typs Mark IX) als auch für die P-51 D „Mustang“ oder die sowjetischen Yak-3 bzw. [100] The standard Revi 16C reflector sight was fitted, which was slated to be replaced by the EZ 42 Gyro gunsight, although this never happened. [54], From the F-4 onward, the new 20 mm Mauser MG 151/20 with 200 rounds was used as the Motorkanone. The F-2 introduced the 15 mm Mauser MG 151 cannon with 200 rounds. About 1,230 F-2s were built between October 1940 and August 1941 by AGO, Arado, Erla, Messerschmitt Regensburg and WNF(Wiener Neustädter Flugzeugwerke). [98] Additional Rüstsätze (equipment kits) such as a 300 L (80 US gal) drop tank (R III), bombs up to the size of 500 kg (1,100 lb) (R I), underwing 20 mm Mauser MG 151/20 cannon gondola pods (R IV) or 21 cm (8.3 in) Wfr.Gr. It was armed with two wing-mounted, and one engine-mounted Motorkanone MG FF cannon, which gave considerable trouble in service, as well as two synchronized MG 17s cowl machine guns. The G-2, which started production in May 1942, lacked the cabin pressurization and GM-1 installation. Messerschmitt responded with the updated Me 155A series, but work on the ship was again canceled and the Me 155 was later re-purposed as a high-altitude interceptor. While the V14 was armed with two 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17s above the engine and one 20 mm MG FF in each wing, the V15 was just fitted with the two MG 17s mounted above the engine. Small, triangular armour-glass panels were fitted into the upper corners of this armour, although there were aircraft in which the plate was solid steel. It was originally intended that the wheel wells would incorporate small doors to cover the outer portion of the wheels when retracted. The remaining 63 of 70 T-1s were built as T-2s without carrier equipment and some of the T-1s may have been "upgraded" to T-2 standard. A total of 1,183 E-1 were built, 110 of them were E-1/B. Ab Sommer 1943 wurde die Messerschmitt Bf 109 in der G-6-Serie mit Zusatzwaffen als Bomber-Zerstörer derartig überfrachtet, dass Sie mit Gondelkanonen unter den Tragflächen den alliierten Konkurrenzmodellen deutlich unterlegen war. Design work was transferred to Blohm & Voss and the aircraft was then known as the BV 155. The E-1 production version kept two 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17s above the engine and two more in the wings. [56] This optional additional armament was standardized as field kit for later G and K series. [53], With its initial engine rating of 1,200 PS, the maximum speed of the F-4 (and F-3) was 635 km/h (394 mph) at rated altitude; and with the clearance of the full rating of 1,350 PS, maximum speed increased to 659 km/h (410 mph) at 6,200 m (20,341 ft). The Messerschmitt Bf 109, like the North American P-51, 1 might have been the plane that never was. Otherwise the wings incorporated the cooling system modifications described below. This helped increase the effectiveness of the rudder, and reduced the need for application of right rudder on takeoff to counteract torque effects from the engine and propeller. Teil 0, Allgemeine Angaben, 1944. The C-4 was planned to have an engine-mounted Motorkanone MG FF, but this variant was not produced. To incorporate these the outer wheel bays were squared off. A total of 647 Bf 109Ds of all versions were built by Focke-Wulf, Erla, Fieseler, Arado and AGO. [32] The armament of the Bf 109T consisted of two 7.92 mm (.312 in) MG 17s above the engine and one 20 mm MG FF/M cannon in each wing.[27]. A radio-navigational method, the Y-Verführung (Y-Guidance) was introduced with the FuG 16ZY.[81]. Seven earlier versions (Bf 109 B, Bf 109 C, Bf 109 E) were converted to test carrier equipment. In the proposed K-6 the armament would have been two 13 mm (.51 in) MG 131 above the engine, along with a 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 108 Motorkanone and an internally mounted MK 108 in each wing, with 45 rpg. [15] To test the new 1,100 PS (1,085 hp, 809 kW) DB 601A engine, two more prototypes (V14 and V15) were built, each differing in their armament. The Messerschmitt company received a contract from RLM/LC on 13 June 1938 to fit the P&W Twin Wasp on the Bf 109 V21 (21st prototype) Werknummer 1770 (D-IFKQ). Even the maiden flight date is not known; it is established that Hermann Wurster flew it at Augsburg on 17 August 1939. Flugunfälle bei Start und Landung gehörten durch das enge Fahrwerk bei der Messerschmitt Bf 109 (übrigens ähnlich der Spitfire) in den Händen von unerfahrenen Flugschülern zu gefährlichem Alltag. In an attempt to increase the pilot's field of view an armoured glass head-rest, the so-called Galland Panzer was developed, and subsequently began replacing the bulky armour plate in the spring of 1943. In one such accident, the commander of JG 2 "Richthofen", Wilhelm Balthasar, lost his life when he was attacked by a Spitfire during a test flight. One was an interceptor armed with five 30 mm (1.18 in) cannon and up to a 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) bomb load, another a fighter-bomber armed with two MK 108 cannon and up to two 2,200 lb. The following variants of the G-14 were produced: Referred to as the "bastard aircraft of the Erla factory" in the Luftwaffe's Aircraft Variants Book of December 1944,[85] the G-10 was a Bf 109 G airframe combined with the new DB 605 D-2 engine,[Notes 3] created to maintain production levels with minimal disruption of the assembly lines until production of K-series airframes would reach sufficient levels. Somit hatten/haben sie beide eine sehr qualifizierte Beurteilungsmöglichkeit aus erster Hand. The supercharger air-intake was, from the F-1 -series onwards, a rounded, "elbow"-shaped design that protruded further out into the airstream. An unexpected structural flaw of the wing and tail section was revealed when the first F-1s were rushed into service; some aircraft crashed or nearly crashed, with either the wing surface wrinkling or fracturing, or by the tail structure failing. The Bf 109 G-series was developed from the largely identical F-series airframe, although there were detail differences. These were designated F-4/R1 and 240 of them were produced by WNF in the first quarter of 1942. [107], Using MW 50 and maximum boost the Bf 109 K-4 was the fastest 109 of World War II, reaching a maximum speed of 710 km/h (440 mph) at 7,500 m (24,600 ft) altitude. The E-1 was also fitted with the Reflexvisier "Revi" gunsight. Initial prototype versions were symmetrical, but as larger superchargers were fitted, the engines required modified upper engine bearers to clear the supercharger housing, and as a result the final shape of the new cowling was asymmetrical, being enlarged on the port side where the supercharger was mounted on the DB engine. These doors were often removed by front-line units. Small wheel well doors, originally planned for the G series, were fitted to the outer ends of the wheel bays, covering the outer wheels when retracted. The rudder was fitted as standard with a Flettner tab and two fixed tabs although some rare examples were not fitted with the fixed tabs. These received some structural improvements and more powerful armament. Ein weiterer Vorzug der Focke-Wulf 190 war die auf dem Rumpf aufgesetzte Cockpit-Haube mit einer perfekten Rundumsicht, ein Merkmal, das die Messerschmitt-Piloten bis Kriegsende nie in dieser Form genießen konnten, wenn auch durch die strebenarme so genannte „Galland-Haube“ die Sicht aus der Kanzel einer Messerschmitt Bf 109 der späteren Baureihen ganz erheblich besser war als in früheren Modellen dieses Jagdflugzeuges. [110], Project drawings of the K-8 show a K-series airframe powered by the two-stage DB 605L high altitude engine, a high-velocity 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 103 Motorkanone, and two 30 mm (1.18 in) MK 108 cannons in the wings; the cowl 13 mm (.51 in) MG 131s were dispensed with. [27] this version never existed. [82] The standardization attempt proved to be a failure,[82] but overall the type offered improved combat performance, as MW 50 power boosting water injection (increasing output to 1,800 PS (1,775 hp, 1,324 kW), the clear-view Erla Haube was now standard installation. The K-4 was the only version to be mass-produced.[95]. After the success of the demonstration at the meeting of Zürich in 1937, Udet was receptive to the idea of developing an export version of the Bf 109 but with a different engine than the DB 601. The last production G-2s were fitted with the enlarged mainwheels and tailwheel while the first of the G-4s used the smaller wheels. In these GM-1 nitrous oxide 'boost' was used, and the pilot's back armour was removed, as were all fittings for the long-range drop tank. [103][104] The DB could also be run on higher octane C3 fuel, but the use of MW 50 was forbidden. The tail section of the aircraft was redesigned as well. Ab der Version G-10 im Herbst des Jahres 1944, vor allem aber mit der Version K-4 Anfang 1945 war der Kraftakt gelungen. [46] A total of 208 F-1s were built between August 1940 and February 1941 by Messerschmitt Regensburg and the Wiener Neustädter Flugzeugwerke (WNF).[49]. The engine cowling was redesigned to be smoother and more rounded. In August 1940, II./JG 27 was operating this type. Armament of the K-4 consisted of a 30 mm (1.2 in) MK 108 engine-mounted cannon (Motorkanone) with 65 rounds and two 13 mm (0.51 in) MG 131s in the nose with 300 rpg, although some K-4s were fitted with the MG 151/20 as the Motorkanone. A total of 475 examples were built between May 1943 and August 1944. Certain production batches of the Bf 109G were fitted with aileron Flettner tabs to decrease stick forces at high speeds. The canopy reverted to one layer of glazing and incorporated the angled head armour used on the F-4, although several G-2 had the vertical type as fitted to the G-1. [78] The rockets, fitted with a massive 40.8 kg (90 lbs) warhead, were aimed via the standard Revi reflector sights, and were spin-stabilized in flight. FAKTEN & INFOS 14 Da sich die Motorkanone der Bf 109 B als defektanfällig erwiesen hatte, ersetzte BFW diese bei der Folgeversion durch zwei zusätzliche MGs in den Flügeln. [22] One of the limitations of the earlier Bf 109Es was their short range of 660 km (410 mi) and limited endurance, as the design was originally conceived as a short-range interceptor. See more ideas about messerschmitt bf 109, messerschmitt, ww2 planes. Maximum speed of the G-5/G-6 was 530 km/h (320 mph) at sea level, 640 km/h (391 mph) at 6,600 m (21,650 ft)-rated altitude at 1.42 atm boost. Kompendium, gesamt 1.560 Seiten, bestehend aus: Bf 109 K-4, Flugzeug-Handbuch, Werkschrift 2109 K-4, 1944. The following variants of the G-10 were produced: Approximately 2,600 G-10s were produced from October 1944 until the war's end. Apart from the standardised streamlined engine cowlings, G-10s with the DB605 D-2 were equipped as standard with the MW-50 booster system (DB 605DM, later 605DB) and had a larger Fo 987 oil cooler housed in a deeper fairing. Also, because of the engine's enlarged crankcase and the oil return lines which ran in front of it, these G-10s had small blister fairings incorporated into the lower engine cowlings, forward of and below the exhaust stacks, except for Erla-built aircraft, which had modified cowlings without the little bulges in front of the exhaust stacks. Often misnamed the "Galland Hood" in postwar Western aviation books and periodicals, it eventually replaced the older heavily framed two-piece canopy — comprising the starboard side-hinged six-panel main canopy, and the three-panel fixed rear unit fastened to the fuselage — on the Bf 109G. Bf 109, Reparaturanleitung D(Luft)T 2109, 1942. When fitted with the MW-50 water/methanol injection system this became the DB 605DM. These factory codes were used by all second line aircraft, such as trainers, communication, some Air Service aircraft and others not engaged in operational use. Development was stopped in early 1942. The V10, V11, V12 and V13 prototypes were built using Bf 109B airframes, and tested the DB 600A engine with the hope of increasing the performance of the aircraft. The G-1, produced from February 1942, was the first production version of the G-series and the first production Bf 109 with a pressurized cockpit. These were used as mounts for specially designed sun umbrellas (called Sonderwerkzeug or Special tool), which were used to shade the cockpit. Allerdings mag dieses Manöver ein fliegerisches Können erfordern, das zu entwickeln die meisten deutschen Nachwuchspiloten bei Kriegsende niemals mehr eine Chance hatten. [58], The Bf 109 G-series was developed from the largely identical F-series airframe, although there were detail differences. [25] A total of 438 E-7s of all variants were built. Wie viele deutsche Jagdflieger waren Anfang des Jahres 1945 übrig und am Leben, die dieses Können noch hatten? The rear cockpit was also equipped with a basic instrument panel and all flight controls.[91]. Two airframes are listed as delivered to II./JG52 under Major Wilhelm Batz in late spring of 1945, these being armed with only one 30 mm (1.18 in) cannon, but the type's existence cannot be positively confirmed. Tja – wie steht es da? In Spain, two versions of the Bf 109G-2, the Hispano Aviación HA-1112 "Tripala" and "Buchón", were built under license, the former with the Hispano-Suiza engine, and the latter with the same Rolls-Royce Merlin engines that had powered Spitfires. However, possibly due to the introduction of the Hurricane and Spitfire, each with eight 7.7 mm (.303 in) machine guns, experiments were carried out with a third machine gun firing through the propeller shaft. The most recognizable external change was the use of the three-panel Erla-Haube clear-view canopy, which filled the entire canopy length behind the four-panel windscreen unit, which eliminated the older, rear fixed canopy section. [6] In the following V9 prototype, both wing guns were replaced by 20 mm MG FF cannons. Man musste die Fähigkeiten der Messerschmitt Bf 109 K-4 kennen und gezielt einsetzen, soweit es die Umstände erlaubten. [96] Flettner tabs for the ailerons were also to be fitted to serial production aircraft to reduce control forces but were extremely rare, with the majority of the K-4s using the same aileron system as the G series.[97]. Propeller pitch was changed electrically, and was regulated by a constant-speed unit, though a manual override was still provided. Hier sollten die Messerschmitt-Staffeln ihre Kameraden in den Focke-Wulf-Jägern, die sich auf die Bomber konzentrieren sollten, vor der amerikanischen Jagd-Eskorte schützen – eine Aufgabe, die selten genug erfolgreich gelöst werden konnte. Many F-1s and F-2s kept this section glazed. These were modified Bf 109G-14s, the latter with the inferior Junkers Jumo 211F engine, which resulted in an aircraft with remarkably poor handling characteristics and a tendency to crash during landings. Takeoff weight was 3,600 kg (7,900 lb). [104] The DC ran on C3 fuel and had a potential to generate 2,000 PS when using C3 fuel with MW 50, and a boost of 1.98 ata, but otherwise the power ratings were similar to that of the DB. The DB 600A was dropped as the improved DB601A with direct fuel injection was soon to become available. on a taller fin/rudder unit, pilot seat or instrument panel. [76] and were clearly identifiable as they use a modified, aerodynamically cleaner, engine cowl without the usual blisters. The Bf 109Ts were issued to several training units in 1943. The smaller wings had a detrimental effect on the handling so V23, Stammkennzeichen (factory Code)[Notes 1] CE+BP, W.Nr 5603, was fitted with new, semi-elliptical wingtips, becoming the standard wing planform for all future Bf 109 combat versions. [28][29][30], Following flight tests, especially the catapult tests, 70 T-1 with DB601Ns were to be produced at Fieseler in Kassel, but after seven T-1s were built, the carrier project was cancelled. There were problems with the 30 mm (1.2 in) MK 108 Motorkanone, which often jammed while the aircraft was manoeuvring in battle, leaving the pilot to fight on with the two MG 131 heavy machine guns. The Messerschmitt Bf 109 is a single-engine single-seat fighter aircraft produced by the German manufacturer Bayerische Flugzeugwerke, later Messerschmitt AG. These were fitted with either an ETC 500 bomb rack, carrying one 250 kg (550 lb) bomb, or four 50 kg (110 lb) bombs. Starr, Chris. Genau das war in Anbetracht der überwältigenden zahlenmäßigen Überlegenheit der Alliierten immer seltener gegeben. [50] As the harder-hitting 20 mm Mauser MG 151/20 version became available, a number of F-2s were retrofitted with it in the field. It could be identified by the small, horn-shaped air intake for the cockpit compressor just above the supercharger intake, on the left upper cowling. The conspicuous bracing struts were removed from the horizontal tailplanes which were relocated to slightly below and forward of their original positions. [72] Between January and February 1943, 50 examples of a pressurized version, the G-3 were also produced; similar to the G-1 although it was equipped with the same FuG 16 VHF radio set as the G-4.[73]. The DB 605D was a one-off prototype engine developed from the DB 605A using internal modifications to raise its altitude rating. Several Rüstsätze could be fitted, although installing these did not change the designation of the aircraft. Die Messerschmitt Bf 108 ist ein viersitziges einmotoriges Leichtflugzeug des deutschen Herstellers Bayerische Flugzeugwerke (BFW) bzw. Walter Eichhorn kommt zu einem exakt gegenteiligen Ergebnis, nach seiner Flugerfahrung sei die Messer­schmitt Bf 109 G-6 „eindeutig wendiger“ als die P-51 D, die der P-51 B sehr ähnlich ist. Pg. [105][106] Regensburg delivered a total of 1,593 by the end of March 1945, after which production figures are missing. Despite this, the type saw only limited service during the war, as all of the 235 Bf 109Ds still in Luftwaffe service at the beginning of the Poland Campaign were rapidly taken out of service and replaced by the Bf 109E, except in some night fighter units where some examples were used into early 1940. The Bf 109TL was first proposed on 22 January 1943 at an RLM conference; at the time only three prototypes of the Me 262 had been completed. Batches of both E-1 and E-3 variants were shipped to Spain for evaluation, and first saw combat during the final phases of the Spanish Civil War. A much bigger cooling area was needed to disperse the extra heat generated by the DB 601, and this led to the first major redesign of the basic airframe. The FuG 25a Erstling IFF system, as well as the FuG 125 Hermine D/F equipment were also fitted. Series production started in August 1944 with the K-4 model, due to changes in the design and delays with the new DB 605D powerplant. [78] Intended as a "stand-off" weapon, fired from a distance of 1,200 meters and outside the effective range of the formations defensive guns, it was employed against Allied bomber formations, the Wfr. [108] Without MW 50 and using 1.80 ata the K-4 reached 670 km/h (416 mph) at 9,000 m (30,000 ft). In vielen Veröffentlichungen, auch youtube Beiträgen, wird immer wieder betont, dass die Messerschmitt Bf 109 ab dem Jahr 1943 ihren Gegnern technisch unterlegen gewesen sei und eigentlich hätte ausgemustert werden sollen zugunsten der angeblich wesentlich besseren Focke-Wulf 190 (A-Serie). Im Sommer 1934 schrieb das Reichsluftfahrtministerium einen Auftrag für einen modernen Jagdeinsitzer aus, um die inzwischen veralteten Doppeldecker Ar 68 und He 51 zu ersetzen. • Die Messerschmitt Bf 109 G ist ein Standmodell.

One A-0, marked as 6–15, ran out of fuel and was forced to land behind enemy lines. The E-5 was a reconnaissance variant of the E-3, the E-6 was a reconnaissance variant of the E-4/N.
