FUJIMI BF-110D 1\48

In 1934 the RLM (State Air Ministry) decided to make an issue for a new kind of fighter having two engines, heavy armament and considerable range. Called a Zerstörer (Destroyer), its’ mission was to escort friendly bombers deep in enemy territory and destroy enemy fighters. Its’ dominant quality was to have range and fire power for any lack of manoeuvrability.
In 1936, the prototype, powered by two of the new DB 600 engines, reached 316 mph.
It was heavy on the controls and not very manoeuvrable although the speed was considered excellent.
