Hello to all
The Bf-110 G - The most numerous of the family.
The high-altitude fighter Bf-110 G-2 / U7 was developed in the summer of 1943 and used GM 1 as liquid nitrous oxide booster, irreverently known as Göring Mischung (Göring mixture), stored in a 440 kg tank that lasted 45 minutes. The injection of nitrous oxide allowed it to increase speed at high altitude. The maximum speed at 10,000 meters was 590 k / h and the maximum ceiling was 11,500 meters. As the nitrous oxide tank was placed in the rear part of the cockpit, the machine gun located there was rendered useless and therefore it was removed. The armor of the gunner was also removed to lighten weight and even in some aircraft the MG 17s were also removed. Between 10 and 20 units of this type were built.
A larger version was the Bf-110 G-2 / R2, a destroyer fighter armed with the Flak 18 gun of 37mm and using GM 1, which provided a maximum speed of 450 k / h at 11,000 meters.
Another version built on a large scale was that of the Bf-110 G-2 / R3, built as of December 1943 and armed with two 30 mm MK-108 guns and 135 projectiles per weapon. The guns were located in the nose of the plane in order to replace the MG-17 machine guns. The Bf-110 G-2 / R4 used a similar armament with the addition of a Flak 18 gun of 37 mm in ventral position. The Bf-110 G-2 / R5 had the same configuration as the R3 but used GM 1.
