As of the summer of 1943, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 series, in its role as a bomber destroyer, was so overloaded with additional weapons, that with the gondola guns under the wings they were far inferior to rival models of the allies. However, even without these additional (removable) weapons, the speed advantage of many of the comparable Allied aircraft was considerable and dangerous, often bolstered by their increased maneuverability and agility. The judgments on the technical inferiority of the Messerschmitt Bf 109 have their origin in this phase that lasted until mid-1944, and for this period they are justified. However, what they almost generally don't take into account is that Messerschmitt engineers did an outstanding job of making their product competitive once again. Starting with the G-10 version in autumn 1944, but mainly with the K-4 “Kurfürst” version in early 1945, the feat was successfully accomplished. "Kurfürst" is literally "Elector" and the German nickname for the K-4. But the meaning of the word was not the reason for his choice. The first letter "K" in "Kurfürst" stood for K-4 as "Foxtrot" for "F" or "Whiskey" for "W" in today's NATO Phonetic Alphabet. In the same way, the E variant of the Me 109 had been named "Emil", the G variant "Gustav", and so on. In the hands of an experienced fighter pilot, who knew how to handle the advantages of the design and avoid its weaknesses, this improved fighter jet was once again a match for any Allied opponent. This included the Supermarine Spitfire (at least the Mark IX), as well as the P-51D Mustang or the Soviet Yak-3 and La-7.

This was the last version of the Bf-109 to be mass-built during the war. The first operations were in October 1944 and around 700 units were built. The DB-605ASCM or DB-605DCM engines and the standard armament of one MK 108 cannon and two MG 131 machine guns could be used. They could use the R-1, R-3, R-4 and R-6. They entered combat with the JG-3, JG-4, JG-27, JG-51, JG-53 and JG-77.

    When I download it and check it out, I see that the glass isn’t transparent. I have the beta version. It isn’t transparent either when I fly. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

    Perhaps you will try making a glass cockpit for that p-51 of yours? None the less, this flies very smooth and realistically, and I love it! Keep up the great work! Upvoted!

    This is the best Bf 109 I've seen on the site! It just flies so well and looks so good!
    btw for the cockpit lights you should put showHalo=false it gets rid of the light around the light piece and only the light is illuminated
