In the spring of 1938, the next mass modification of the aircraft, known as the Messerschmitt Bf 109C "Caesar" (Caesar, in other sources - Clara), rolls off the assembly line. It had a number of design improvements compared to the Bf 109B and was equipped with a more powerful Jumo 210A engine with a direct fuel injection system. The fighter was armed with four machine guns: two of them were located above the engine, and one each at the base of the wing consoles. Bf.109 B and C were approximately equal to I-16 (type 5) and inferior to I-16 (type 10).
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 (German: Messerschmitt Bf 109, the traditional spelling for the USSR is Me-109) is a single-engine low-wing piston fighter that has been in service with the Luftwaffe and the Air Force of various countries for almost 30 years. Depending on the modification, it was used as a day fighter (including specialized modifications for low altitudes and a family of versions of high-altitude fighters), day and night fighter-interceptor, fighter-attack aircraft, fighter-bomber, photo-reconnaissance fighter and unarmed photo-reconnaissance (including high-altitude), as well as a training fighter. It was one of the two main Luftwaffe fighters, the most massive German aircraft throughout the Second World War, and also the most massive fighter in history.
By the number of cars produced (as of March 1945, only in Germany - about 32,500 units; total production - taking into account the release in April 1945, in Hungary, Romania, Francoist Spain in 1944-1958 and post-war Czechoslovakia in 1945-1948 years - exceeds 33,000 copies; there is also evidence that the total production of aircraft of the Bf.109 family amounted to 34,826 or even 34,852 copies) is one of the most massive aircraft in history, second only to the Il-2 attack aircraft (36,163 aircraft) and light general purpose aircraft Cessna 172 Skyhawk. Sometimes you can come across the assertion that the training aircraft, and later - including the U-2 (Po-2) night bomber, also exceeded the Bf.109 in terms of production (figures up to 40 thousand produced U-2 are called). But this is not confirmed by Soviet sources, which estimate the production of the U-2 at about 33,000 vehicles.
