On 30 March , test pilot Hans Dieterle surpassed that record, reaching The aircraft was given several nicknames by its operators and opponents, generally derived from the name of the manufacturer Messer, Mersu [originally the Finnish nickname for the prestigious Mercedes-Benz cars], Messzer 2 Variants etc.

The Soviets  about half to combat. This unique combination of events Altogether, this group of pilots were credited with a total of nearly 15, kills. Bf s remained in foreign service for many years after World War II.
The Swiss used their Bf Gs well into the s. Romania used its Bf s until Some were still in service in the late s. Some Hispano airframes were sold to museums, which rebuilt them as Bf s. It does not include the United States, the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union, who all operated small numbers of captured aircraft for testing and evaluation see: Messerschmitt Bf operational history Allied Bf s.
Nazi Germany. Egypt and Syria claimed four S kills, and one probable. Italian Social Republic. The aircraft were used for tests and trials. It was recovered from the bottom of a lake in Norway. This museum also has on display a Bf E which crashed during the Battle of Britain. This aircraft deployed in October Later that month he destroyed a British Blenheim bomber and another British plane.
This accounts for the three yellow kill marks on the rudder. But his own aircraft was mortally wounded, and Hemmerling turned back toward France.

If you want to sight and fire, you need to double that time to four seconds. And with dive brakes, you could have done that. Eventually, German pilots developed new combat tactics to counter Allied bombers' defenses. Me s, equipped with R4M rockets , approached from the side of a bomber formation, where their silhouettes were widest, and while still out of range of the bombers' machine guns, fired a salvo of rockets with Hexogen -filled warheads. One or two of these rockets could down even the famously rugged B Flying Fortress. Though this tactic was effective, it came too late to have a real effect on the war, and only small numbers of Me s were equipped with the rocket packs.
Some nicknamed this tactic the Luftwaffe's Wolf Pack , as the fighters often made runs in groups of two or three, fired their rockets, then returned to base. On 1 September , USAAF General Carl Spaatz expressed the fear that if greater numbers of German jets appeared, they could inflict losses heavy enough to force cancellation of the Allied bombing offensive by daylight.
The Me was difficult for its opponents to counter because its high speed and rate of climb made it extremely hard to intercept. As with all other early jets, the Me 's engines did not provide a lot of thrust at low air speeds a key criterion for good turn performance at low speeds , and throttle response was slow. Another disadvantage all early jet engines shared was a relatively high risk of flameout if the pilot used the throttle too aggressively as is common in a dogfight.
German engineers introduced an automatic throttle regulator later in the war but it only partly alleviated the problem. On the plus side, thrust at high speed was much greater than on propeller-driven aircraft. The plane had, by contemporary standards, quite a high wing loading This, coupled with the low thrust at slow speeds and high chance of a flameout if the throttle was worked too aggressively, resulted in Me pilots being told to avoid low speed dogfights with the Allied piston-engine fighters.

This problem faces any aircraft that approaches another from behind at much higher speed, as the slower aircraft in front can always pull a tighter turn, forcing the faster aircraft to overshoot. The one above me went into a steep right-hand turn, his pale blue underside standing out against the purple sky. Another banked right in front of the Me's nose. Violent jolt as I flew through his airscrew eddies.
Maybe a wing's length away. That one in the gentle left-hand curve!
Swing her round. I was coming from underneath, eye glued to the sight pull her tighter! A throbbing in the wings as my cannon pounded briefly. Missed him. Way behind his tail. It was exasperating. I would never be able to shoot one down like this.

They were like a sack of fleas. A prick of doubt: is this really such a good fighter? Could one in fact, successfully attack a group of erratically banking fighters with the Me ? Luftwaffe pilots eventually learned how to handle the Me 's higher speed, and the Me soon proved a formidable air superiority fighter, with pilots such as Franz Schall managing to shoot down 12 enemy fighters in the Me , 10 of them American P Mustangs.
Other notable Me aces included Georg-Peter Eder , also with 12 enemy fighters to his credit including 9 Ps , Walther Dahl with 11 including three Lavochkin La-7s and six Ps and Heinz-Helmut Baudach with six including one Spitfire and two Ps amongst many others. Pilots soon learned that the Me was quite maneuverable, despite its high wing loading and lack of low-speed thrust, especially if attention was drawn to its effective maneuvering speeds.
The controls were light and effective right up to the maximum permissible speed and perfectly harmonized. Too fast to catch for the escorting Allied fighters, the Me s were almost impossible to head off. Combating the Allied fighters could be effectively done the same way as the U. Allied pilots soon found the only reliable way of dealing with the jets, as with the even faster Me Komet rocket fighters, was to attack them on the ground and during takeoff or landing. Luftwaffe airfields identified as jet bases were frequently bombed by medium bombers , and Allied fighters patrolled over the fields to attack jets trying to land.
The Luftwaffe countered by installing extensive flak alleys of anti-aircraft guns along the approach lines to protect the Me s from the ground—and by providing top cover during the jets' takeoff and landing with the most advanced Luftwaffe single-engined fighters, the Focke-Wulf Fw D and just becoming available in Focke-Wulf Ta H. Hubert Lange, a Me pilot, said: "the Messerschmitt Me 's most dangerous opponent was the British Hawker Tempest — extremely fast at low altitudes, highly-manoeuvrable and heavily-armed.
They did not intercept the jet, but instead flew towards the Me and Ar base at Rheine-Hopsten. Adolf Busemann had proposed swept wings as early as Messerschmitt researched the topic from Interest in high-speed flight, which led him to initiate work on swept wings starting in , is evident from the advanced developments Messerschmitt had on his drawing board in While the Me HG I actually flight tested in had only small changes compared to combat aircraft, most notably a low-profile canopy tried as the Rennkabine literally "racing cabin" on the Me V9 prototype for a short time to reduce drag, the HG II and HG III designs were far more radical.
Messerschmitt also conducted a series of flight tests with the series production Me The resulting steepening of the dive would lead to even higher speeds and the airframe would disintegrate from excessive negative g loads.
