Oberleutnant Hans-Joachim Jabs was one of the Luftwaffe's most successful Bf 110 pilots and was credited with a total of 50 aerial victories.
The Messerschmitt Bf 110 was a German twin-engine heavy fighter used by the Luftwaffe during World War II. Later in the war it was developed into a formidable night-fighter aircraft. First flown on May 12, 1936, the Bf 110 entered service in 1937. It was used with considerable success in early campaigns against Poland, Denmark, Norway and France. Being a relatively large aircraft it lacked the agility of single-engine fighters such as the British Spitfire and Hurricane. This flaw was exposed during the Battle of Britain when some Bf 110-equipped units were withdrawn from combat after very heavy losses and redeployed as night fighters, a role that the aircraft was well suited for. During campaigns in the Balkans, North Africa and on the Eastern Front, the Bf 110 rendered valuable ground support to the German Army as a fighter-bomber.Realistic panel lines
