The ME-109 Messerschmitt is an all-weather aircraft made for the Luftwaffe during World War II. One of the most produced aircraft in the world, the ME-109 has over 30,000 units built. This aircraft was designed to be an interceptor, but later on progressed to different roles, which include reconnaissance, bombing, and ground attack. In terms of its aerodynamics, the BF 109 Messerschmitt was way ahead of its contemporaries. Due to its lightweight construction, this German aircraft had the advantage of superior maneuverability both in diving and climbing during flight. As a result, the ME-109 was instrumental in many Luftwaffe successes during the World War II.
