The designing of the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was done by German engineers Willy Messerschmitt and Walter Rethel. It had its initial test flight in September 1935. The all-metal fighter aircraft had a cockpit that is closed and an under-carriage that is truly retractable. Getting its power from a Rolls-Royce Kestrel V engine of 695 horsepower, the ME 109 possessed a maximum speed of 550km (342 mph) and carried a range of 660km (410 miles). It was armed with 2 cannons of 20mm and 2 machine guns. The Bf 109 became the recuperating German nation’s symbol of pride. It had been a major figure in several combat actions such as the Spanish Civil War, the North African Campaign, the Mediterranean Campaign, the Battle of Britain, the invasion of central Europe, and West front and East front.
