Germany’s need for a twin-engine high-speed bomber and heavy fighter was met with
the introduction of the Messerschmitt Bf-110 Zerstorer (Destroyer). The Bf-110 soon
became the dominant aircraft in 1939 and especially during the invasion of Poland. The
machine guns in the rear cockpit. The great success in Poland meant production of the
Bf-110 was increased to 100 units per month. However when the Bf-110s started to
come up against the much faster and more maneuverable Hurricanes and Spitfires the
Zerstorer’s weaknesses started to show with mounting losing. A new role was given to
the Bf-110 as a night-fighter and once radar became available they really began to shine.
At first they would almost devastate the incoming bomber raids but even the success of
this role began to diminish as the Allies started to win control of the skies with some
superior aircraft and in far greater numbers than the Germans could produce.

The Wasp insignia had its origins when the II/ZG 1 was known as III/ZG 76 in Norway. It
was supposedly design to compete with the Sharkmouth of the II/ZG 76 unit. The group
retained the insignia even when they later became III/ZG 76 and then part of E.Gr. 210
and in 1941 when they took part in the invasion of the USSR II/SKG 210. In 1942 the unit
came full circle and was once again known as II/ZG 1 “Wespen” and sent to Italy. The
unit flew Zerstorer missions until early summer 1943 when it returned to Germany to take
part in the defense of the Reich. The Allies found the aircraft S9+FM intact and
abandoned on Montecorvino Airfield near the Salerno beachhead.
