With the latest add-ons and update I find that the Bf-110 becomes a very formidable plane in IL-2, at least in terms of firepower with the Mk 108 30 mm cannons.

However, poking around online I can find NO info on when these cannons were generally available. I'm assuming mid or late war. Some dates would be helpful in building a custom campaign. Thanks!

Around late 1943 to 1944 is when the Mk108 cannons started coming into wide use on LW planes.

Design 40 Developement up to end 42

They were build in since mid 43 after it meet a RLM requirement for a bomber cannon.

The rpm increased from 660 to 850 in later mk108 models. Not Modeled in IL2
