- Customer Reviews
The Bf109E introduced the DB601 inverted V-12 engine with direct fuel injection. This new version was vastly superior to the early Jumo powered 109's and was built in large numbers and by the time of the Battle of Britain in 1940, it was the Luftwaffe's main fighter. The E-1 was armed only with 4 machine guns but many were refitted to E-3 standard with 20mm cannons in the wings. The Bf109E-4 followed on from the E-3, with minor modifications to the cannon ammunition, pilot armour and canopy. The E-7 was the first Bf109 to be fitted with drop tank provision and entered service in September 1940. Early Bf109E's first saw action as part of Condor Legion in the Spanish Civil War in 1938-9.
