Messerschmitt Bf110

Willy Messerschmitt however made a creditable attempt with the Bf110, resulting in a machine at that time faster than the Bf109 and similar in speed to the Hawker Hurricane, (end of 1936).
The Bf110 was also tried as a bomber and a night fighter, the latter being its more successful role.
But it must be said that long range, speed, and manoeuvrability, are not mutually compatible and the Bf110 never was more than a maid of all work.
