The messerschmitt 110 was by some peoples standards, on an old forum of mine, a complete flop. I nearly flipped out on that peson, because the 110 would later become numerically the most important night fighter of the war for the reich, and it served in many roles, other than which it was built for, with success. The Bf-110 could carry a heavy armament, and often did so in the night fighter role, along with radar, and acheived success, becoming a true thorn in the side of the RAF. Not only did the 110 prove a worthy adversary against night bombers of the RAF, but it also worked as a day interceptor against american daylight bombers. It could carry rockets, and mortars to break up formations of bombers, and was successful in head on attacks, when escort fighters werent around to maul the poor 110, because as we all know from the battle of britain, it was not a dogfighter. It could carry anti-armor and anti-personnel weapons in the fighter-bomber/close support well, but did this mostly when employed on the eastern front. The 110 was surpassed in performance by both the P-38, and the mosquito, which is obvious, so im not going to even argue that point. This was just a post to anyone out there who doubted for one second just how valuable the Messerschmitt 110 was. As i havent seen any bad mouthing it, this isnt directed towards anyone in particular, and everyone here seems much smarter than my lst group. Just had to get that rant off my chest.
