The Messerschmitt Bf109 is one of the most famous fighters in history. More Bf109's (over 33000) were built than any other fighter and it shot down many more opponents than any other fighter in history.

The Bf109G was similar to the F but it introduced the DB605 inverted V-12 engine, which was more powerful than the earlier DB601, with more development potential. The main early versions were the G-2 and G-4, which had a 20mm cannon and two 7.92mm machine guns in the nose. The G-5 and G-6 had the machine guns replaced by 13mm heavy machine guns, which needed bulges on top of the cowling to accomodate the larger breech blocks. The G-1 was the first G model in service in early 1942 and the soon G-2 followed a few months later. The G-2 would have been the main version in service in 1942 as the G-4 didn't appear until towards the end of 1942 and was the main production version until the G-6 was introduced in February 1943. The G-4 featured a much improved radio compared to the G-2.
