Fighters & Interceptors

History

One of the Luftwaffe's principal fighters was the Messerschmitt 109's and Messerschmitt 110's, there were approximately 33,000 Messerschmitt 109 made during the war. Which were designed by Willy Messerschmitt and built by his company, which had a devastating effect on Allied air forces at the beginning of World War II. The first major failure of the Luftwaffe was the Battle of Britain although this was not down to the equipment. It was more the case of bad leadership and tactics. As the war progressed, and the Luftwaffe became increasingly outnumbered. They needed an edge in technology and subsequently the Messerschmitt 262 was introduced, which was the very first operational jet fighter in the world.
