The Messerschmitt Bf 109 is a German World War II fighter aircraft that was the backbone of the Luftwaffe's fighter force. The Bf 109 first saw operational service in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War and was still in service at the dawn of the jet age at the end of World War II in 1945. It was one of the most advanced fighters of the era, including such features as all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. It was commonly called the Me 109, most often by Allied aircrew and even among the German aces themselves, even though this was not the official German designation.
At the Air Raid level, the Me-109 is one of the targets for destruction. On the levels of Escape and Covering Fire it can be seen at the airfield. Also at the level of the Tail Gunner a few Me-109 attacked aircraft of the allies.
The ME 109 appears in a bomber mission where the player must defend the B-17 bomber formation from German fighter planes.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Me-109 that attack bombers have a red nose. However, the red-nosed Me 109 only had command vehicles, which were rare. It is unlikely that these aircraft could attack Murphy in such numbers.
