Messerschmitt Bf110466 viewsWilly 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.

ARADO AR 1961484 viewsthe Ar 196's primary duties consisted of reconnaissance and shadowing of service vessels. While in most respects the Ar 196 is not a formidable aircraft, for a seaplane it's performance exceeded it's Allied counterparts. After Germany's capital ships ceased active participation in the war, most Ar 196's were relegated to sea patrols from shore bases. About 50 planes served with Balkan air forces in the Adriatic and Black Sea.
Ar 196A-0, Ar 196A-1, Ar 196A-2: Coastal patrol variant.

Blohm und Voss BV 222760 viewsWith a wing span of 46 m and six engines the Blohm & Voss BV 222 was the largest flying boat built in the second world war. On 7th August 1941, the BV 222 V2 which, following experience with the V1, was already equipped with suitable defensive weapons, made it's maiden flight. The first flight took place on 7th September 1940, which was after the start of the second world war, when a machine with a long-range capacity and large cargo space was already of special interest to the military. A total of 12 machines were built in different versions. After completion of trials and conversion, the V2 went into service as a troop transporter with LTS See 222 (air transport command sea 222), before it was finally introduced to 1/SAGr. 129 in Biscarosse, France for the long-range reconnaissance purpose for which it was originally intended.33333
