Recommended Posts

This is another great book in the Osprey Combat Aircraft Series. It covers the development of the 210 and the later 410 aircraft. These were designed to replace the classic Me 110 aircraft.

It was in 1937 that the idea and development started on a replacement for the Me 110 Zerstorer (Destroyer) which itself was just entering service. The new design would have to full fill the role of Destroyer and dive bomber.

The development stages and aircraft variations are very well done including all issues with the Me 210 which was not the success Messerschmitt was hoping for. This was due to a lack of sufficient flight-testing, the Me 210 suffered from bad reputation in respect to its flight characteristics and weak undercarriage. Every detail and stages are covered in great depth. What I found very interesting is the amount of information from the different issues and production locations etc.
