The Messerschmitt Bf-110 was originally deployed as a heavy long range escort fighter during the early part of World War II. As Allied fighters improved, it was no longer effect in its mission. It then assumed the role of a fighter/bomber and was successful against enemy troops and armor when used in support of ground operations. Eventually the aircraft was used as a night fighter.
Although it had an excellent dive speed, the twin engine fighter was not as maneuverable as many single engine aircraft.
It was employed as a bomber escort where it used its heavy fire power and long range as an asset.
However, it soon became apparent that the Bf-110 was no match for modern Allied fighter aircraft.
The size of the aircraft made it capable of accepting the heavy radar of the time for use as a night fighter, where it met with success.
One night fighter version was equipped with 20 mm cannons which fired upward. That enabled the aircraft to intercept enemy aircraft and attack them from below, while in level flight.
Major Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer, a Messerschmitt Bf-110 pilot, claimed 121 night victories in the aircraft.
A common tactic of the Messershmitt Bf-110, when used as a day interceptor, was to dive on opposing aircraft trying to score hits with heavy cannons, then breaking off pursuit to avoid retaliatory strikes.
However, it did not fare well when Allied bombers were escorted by fighter aircraft.
A total of approximately 6,100 Messerschmitt Bf-110 aircraft of all types were built from 1936 through the end of the war.
