The Messerschmitt Me-109 was a German World War II fighter aircraft. It was one of the first truly modern fighters of the era. The Me-109 first saw operational service during the Spanish Civil War and was still in service at the end of World War II, during which time it was the backbone of the Luftwaffe's fighter force. This specific Me-109 is the E, which was the first major redesign of the series. The Me-109E, or "Emil", introduced a number of structural changes in order to accommodate the heavier, but significantly more powerful engine, heavier armament and increased fuel capacity. The 109E first saw service with the "Condor Legion" during the last phase of the Spanish Civil War and was the main variant from the beginning of World War II until mid-1941 when the 109F replaced it in the pure fighter role.
