One of the greatest fighters of all time designed by Willi Messerschmitt the Bf 109 was in continuous production from 1936 to 1945 the over 33000 produced (the exact no. is unknown) represented nearly 2/3rds of Germany's entire output of single seat fighters, making it the most mass produced fighter aircraft ever. It first saw action in the Spanish Civil War and was unquestionably the world's best fighter until bettered by the Spitfire in 1940.
Designed to meet a Luftwaffe need for a single-seat fighter/interceptor, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was first flown on May 28th, 1935. Its all-metal construction, closed canopy and retractable gear made the Bf 109 one of the first true modern fighters of WWII. This versatile aircraft served in many roles and was the most produced aircraft of the war and the backbone of the Luftwaffe, and was flown by Germany's top three aces, who claimed a total of 928 victories between them. Armed with two cannons and two machine guns, the Bf 109's design underwent constant revisions, which allowed it to remain competitive until the end of the war.
