On August 24, 1940 Marseille scored his first victory by downing a Hurricane. Marseille didn't consider tactical situations and dove into dogfights adding five more victories during the Battle of Britain but was himself shot down four times. He was transferred to I./JG 27 and on September 30, 1942 he was killed over Egypt having accumulated a total of 158 victories.

Messerschmitt Bf 109F

Designed to meet a Luftwaffe need for a single-seat fighter/interceptor, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 was first flown on May 28th, 1935. Its all-metal construction, closed canopy and retractable gear made the Bf 109 one of the first true modern fighters of WWII. This versatile aircraft served in many roles and was the most produced aircraft of the war and the backbone of the Luftwaffe, and was flown by Germany's top three aces, who claimed a total of 928 victories between them. Armed with two cannons and two machine guns, the Bf 109's design underwent constant revisions, which allowed it to remain competitive until the end of the war.
