    I'd go with the He-111. It was wasn't the fastest and had less range than the other two, but it was heavily armed as opposed to the IL-4, which only had 3 machine guns for defense, where the He-111 had 7. It also was more heavily armored than the Betty, which like other japanese planes, lacked self sealing fuel tanks.

    The only part where I would go with the Betty is it was the fastest, had incredible range, and could also carry torpedoes. But I wouldn't be fond of having my air crews packed in a flying gas tank.

    I too will have to go with the He 111. It was not the best but I believe of the above it had the best overall combination of firepower, performance, etc.
