The Messerschmitt Me 410 Hornisse ("Hornet") was a German heavy fighter and Schnellbomber used by the Luftwaffe during World War II. Though essentially a straightforward modification of the Me 210, it was designated the Me 410 to avoid association with its notoriously flawed predecessor.[1]


  • Armament: Two remotely controlled powered barbettes on sides of fuselage each housing one 13mm MG 131 and Internal weapons bay housing various combinations of weapons ranging from 7.92mm MG 17 machine guns, MG 151's, Mk 108 30mm cannon, BK5 50mm cannon with 21 rounds all the way up to 210mm rockets in a rotary tube configuration (tested, but poor results prevented front-line use), or Two 1,102 lb. (500kg) Bombs and External Racks for two 1,102 lb. (500kg) Bombs plus two Rüstzatz external packs housing Mg 151, Mk 108 or Mk 103 cannons were fitted to some variants.
  • Avionics: SN-2 Lichtenstein Radar on Me 410A-2/U-2 Night Fighter FuG 200 Hohentwiel ASV (air/surface vessel) Radar on Me 410B-6 Anti-Shipping variant.[2]
