Messerschmitt Bf109D-1

Armed with a 20mm cannon firing through the propeller hub and two 7.92mm machineguns the Bf 109D-1 is formidable against early war aircraft. What it lacks in engine power it more than makes up for in firepower.

How do I get one?

In the ‘1.08 – Planes & Ladders’ update this wonderful vehicle will become a part of the ever-expanding arsenal for the German faction! The Bf109D-1 unlocks at the Dog Fight Ribbon grade 5, where the Bf109E-4 used to be. The Bf109E-4 is moved to grade 7.

Isn’t it very difficult to fly planes?

In the 1.03 – Wings of War update earlier this year, we introduced two new flight control modes as well as two additional throttle controls making it much easier to get started flying. Take a look at this news-post and video to see more about the new flight controls.

Historical Facts

The BF109D was the main Luftwaffe plan in the Spanish civil war and was the standard version of the Bf109 just before the start of WW2. It saw some action in WW2 and played a role at the beginning of the Poland Campaign.
