- 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-3 was the first Bf109 to carry 20mm cannons in the wings. The E-4 had a new version of the MG FF cannons, that fired a more powerful explosive round, plus other small detail revisions
