Messerschmitt Me 210
The Messerschmitt Me 210 is a military plane. It was a fighter aircraft, but was also use as a light bomber and reconnaissance aircraft. It flew for the first time in 1939. The plane turned out to be a very poor design. It was a dangerous plane to fly and had many accidents. It was used by Nazi Germany's air force (Luftwaffe) during the World War II in the Mediterranean and in Russia. The Me 210 was replaced by the Messerschmitt Me 410 Hornisse (Hornet). It was almost the same plane but with more powerful engines.
