Some Notes on the Me. 110

Some Notes on the Me. 110 AFTER viewing the Messerschmitt Me. 110, one is impressed by the fact that here is an aeroplane provided with terrific striking power, but with practically no defensive armament or armour. The four machineguns and two cannon, tightly packed into the nose of the fuselage, provide heavy lire power, and contrast sharply with the single flexible machine gun supported on a primitive mount in the aft cockpit. A quickly detachable, external bomb rack designed to carry two bombs, apparently of the 500 lb. class, is provided for use on missions where attack of ground objectives, such as troop concentrations, would be the principal purpose. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

AFTER viewing the Messerschmitt Me. 110, one is impressed by the fact that here is an aeroplane provided with terrific striking power, but with practically no defensive armament or armour. The four machineguns and two cannon, tightly packed into the nose of the fuselage, provide heavy lire power, and contrast sharply with the single flexible machine gun supported on a primitive mount in the aft cockpit. A quickly detachable, external bomb rack designed to carry two bombs, apparently of the 500 lb. class, is provided for use on missions where attack of ground objectives, such as troop concentrations, would be the principal purpose.
