Messerschmitt Bf109F-4 Trop ''Marseilles'' w/Figure
The Bf-109F series constituted a total revamping of the fighter`s fundamental design most visibly evident in the aerodynamic streamlining that smooted the somewhat rough edges of the E series, giving the F design its characterisically elegant lines. The F desighn also improved on the arrangement of the cannon arament, wich fired through a hollow propeller hub in the E series designs, concentrating firepower ordnance in the cowling and improving the overall weight balance of the aircraft. The design was widely recognized as the world`s most potent fighter during 1941 -1942.
Hauptmann Hans Joachim Mareille was a '' super experten '' ace with 158 confirmed kills, all of wich were made against American or British opponents.
The fact that 151 of these kills were made in the North Africab campaign explans the nickname of '' The Star of Africa '' Marseille was given by his comrades and countrymen. Using his keen eyesight and awesome markmanship, Marseille racked up his score using his favorite tactic of slashing '' boom and zoom '' diving attacks on his Allied quarry, typically needing only a single pass to take down his opponents.
