When used as a heavy-fighter-bomber the Bf-110 had mixed results. But when airborne
radar was added along with nose-mounted armament and Schrage Musik (the upward
firing cannons) the Bf-110 became a deadly nighttime predator for British bombers.  By
the end of 1942 Germany had almost 400 night-fighters of which 75% were Bf-110s.
These deadly hunters managed to destroy almost 1300 aircraft during 1942 alone. As the
British bomber attacks increased in size and frequency the Bf-110 was simply
overwhelmed and couldn’t cope allowing more and more bombs to make it to German

In November 1939 the 17 year old Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer joined the Luftwaffe and in
January 1942 was based at Saint-Trond Belgium where he became known as "The Night
Ghost Of Saint-Trond". By the end of WWII the 23-year old Schnaufer was NJG-1
Kommandeur with several medals having flown 164 missions and 121 victories making
him the top scoring Nachtjager pilot. On February 21, 1945 he added 9 RAF bombers to
his victories. After surviving WWII it is almost ironic that Schnaufer died at age 28 in a car
