These WWII Warbirds are the Aces!
Among World War II
fighters, the British Supermarine Spitfire MK 22 and
the German Messerschmitt BF 109G squared-off in
the European sky’s as formidable foes.
Synonymous with the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire was the primary
British front-line fighter throughout the war an served in every major theater
of operation. During its service life of over a decade; the Spitfire went
through an adventurous metamorphis. Originally conceived as a quick
ascending interceptor with focus on agility, the later development turned
towards its mobility traits, introducing a new frame and engine, propelling the
Spitfire past its expiration date and into the second half of the 20th century.
The Messerschmitt is a German World War II fighter aircraft
designed during the early to mid-1930s. It was one of the first truly modern
fighters of the era, including such features as all-metal monocoque
construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. Powered by a
liquid-cooled, inverted-V12 aero engine. The Messerschmitt first saw
operational service in the Spanish Civil War and was still in service at the
dawn of the jet age at the end of World War II.
