The Messerschmitt Bf-110 is a German twin-engine heavy metal fighter with a double tail. The engines used were Junkers Jumo 210Ga, Daimler-Benz DB 601B-1, Daimler-Benz DB 601F, Daimler-Benz DB 605B-1 engines with power from 700KM to 1475KM. The first prototype of the Bf-110 took off in May 1936. The first mass-produced version of the Bf-110 was the C version, which production started in 1939. Version C was regarded as a heavy fighter and performed on average in the September campaign, but much better in the French campaign. However, too heavy and too slow, the Bf-110 suffered considerable losses in the Battle of Britain, which meant that it was systematically moved to the Reich Defense units as a night fighter, which eventually led to the creation of the G and H versions. They were used as night fighters and interceptors against allied bombing expeditions. In combination with the on-board radar (eg FuG 202 or FuG220), the Bf-110 became a very formidable enemy for British bombers. About 5,800 copies of this aircraft were manufactured in the course of production. Technical data (version Bf-110C): length: 12.3 m, wingspan: 16.3 m, height: 3.3 m, maximum speed: 560 km / h, rate of climb: m / s, maximum range: 2410 km, maximum ceiling 10500 m armament: fixed - 5 7.92mm machine guns and 2 20mm MG FF cannons.
