Messerschmitt BF-109 was a standard German Luftwaffe single seat
fighter for nearly a decade. It is believed that more than 33,000 of
these fighters were produced between 1936 and the end of World War 2.
During the war, the BF-109 fought on every front in which the Luftwaffe
was engaged. The BF-109 first saw actual combat during the Spanish
Civil War where it proved to be an effective weapon against the Russian
Fighters of the Republic forces. The BF-109 was considered an excellent
fighter since it handled well and possessed excellent low speed control
response. The BF-109’s were produced in quantity right up to the end of
the war in 1945.
