The Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 is a German fighter aircraft that formed the backbone, along with the Focke-Wulf Fw 190, of the Luftwaffe’s fighter force during World War II.  First seeing operational service in 1937, the Bf 109 remained in service and was still competitive with the latest Allied fighters till the end of World War II. The Bf 109G-6 was the most-produced Bf 109 model, with more than a third of all 109s built. 

Considered as one of the most advanced fighters at its time the Bf 109G-6, as well as its previous variants, featured an all-metal frame, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. It was powered by a liquid-cooled, inverted-V12 engine.

Armed with two synchronised machine guns in the engine’s cowling, capable of firing through the propeller, in addition to a single autocannon firing through the a tube in the engine, the Bf 109G-6 can also be equipped with the Rüstsatz VI underwing gondola cannon kit. This led to the Bf 109 being a low-drag, very thing winged and light fighter.

The Bf 109 proved to be a successful platform flown by top-scoring fighter aces of all time, such as Erich Hartmann, Hans-Joachim Marseille, and many non German fighter aces.
