History

The Luftwaffe used an assortment of aircraft weapon types during World War II. They were perpetually endeavoring to maximise aircraft firepower against the wide assortment of targets they had to deal with. Weapons fire used to bring down a heavily armed four engine bomber was not the same as that required to effectively deal with a fast and agile fighter in a dog fight. German fighter armament options ranged from rifle caliber light machine guns, to 30 mm cannons, mostly configured as mixed arrays of cowl and wing mounted weapons. and much later on air to air missiles.
