Diecast Aircraft Information  Diecast Aircraft Information MetalWings Diecast Aircraft Reference by Dauntless Aviation
Bf-110 Zerstorers “Destroyers” were very good against Poland and the Scandinavian countries
early in WWII. But once they were put into this role during the Battle of Britain and came up
against the much faster and more agile Hurricanes and Spitfires the Bf-110 suffered tremendous
losses. They were withdrawn from this and found their calling as night fighters that inflicted large
losses on the British bombers that were un-escorted.

After taking part in the Battle of France Zerstorergeschwader 1 (ZG 1 – Destroyer Wing) had the
unit named changed to Nachjagdeschwader 1 (Night Fighter Wing) so technically there was no
ZG 1 active from June 1940 until January 1942. On January 4, 1942 the Zerstorergeschwader
was reformed and the Bf-110 provided support for German forces as they advanced eastward
into the Soviet Union. On March 1, 1942 Bf-110 S9+AM flown by Georg Schanz and Hermann
Muller failed to return from a combat mission.
