Description by Ryko Distribution:
The idea of a long range, fast, heavy fighter lay close to the heart of Goering during the growth years of the new German air force. The chosen design, the Messerschmitt Bf-110, took to the air in 1936. Unable to dog fight with nimble RAF fighters, the Bf-110 was employed as a night fighter, serving alongside other types, such as the Junkers Ju-88, the Luftwaffe's premier type in the night battles with RAF bombers.
