Numerically the most abundant fighter produced by either side during WW2, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 formed the backbone of the Jagdwaffe on both the Eastern and Western fronts as well as in North Africa and the Mediterranean.  Powered by the Daimler Benz DB600 Series engine through out its production run.  Of all the sub-variants, the G model was the most prevalent with over 30,000 being manufactured between 1941 and 1945.  Most of the surviving examples are Spanish license built HA-1112-MIL powered by Rolls Royce Merlin engines.  About three original a/c remain today.
