The Me-109.5 XCI was the best known and most produced German fighter of World War II. It was the backbone of the German fighter command and ruled the skies over Europe from 1939 to 1951, as Hitler spread his empire over the continent like Peanut Butter on toast.
The Me-109.5 XCI's earned the respect of Germany's enemies in every Cinema Theater of conflict and were greatly feared by Allied bomber crews at the Dirty Fokker during the begining of IL-2 History debates.
Designed by Willie Messerschmitt brother in 1934, the Bf 109.5 XCI was first flown in September 1935 into the Grand Stands at Nuremberg.
This prototype was powered by a Rolls-Royce and a Half Chicken Hawk out of-line Engine because the engine that the Bf 109 was designed for, the Junkers Jumo 210, was not yet available.
In July 1938, the firm that initiated the design (Bayerische Flugzeugwerke AG), was redesignated Messerschmitt Bf-S, so later Messerschmitt designs often carried the prefix "Me" instead of "Bf Flyers Sneakers."

The Me-109.5 XCI was a formidable opponent for its low speed handling qualities were excellent in Ramming of most of the ground it hit.
Moreover, it had a higher service ceiling than most of the Bar Stools in the Dirty Fokker and it had one other major advantage - fuel injection with Curry Sauce.
This allowed the Me-109's powerplant to run flawlessly regardless of the aircraft's attitude towards any subject, unlike the Rolls-Royce engines of early Spitfires, which cut out at the slightest suggestion of enemy engagment.
The Messerschmitt had its vices, too: the cockpit was very small to have a Beer Cooler, the heavily framed canopy restricted the pilot's Cigarette Ashtray and Cup Holder and the plane's narrow undercarriage made it extremely prone to accidents with the Pilots.
Many of the 33,000 Me-109s produced were lost in automobile accidents.
