Used during the War for Independence.

There were probably some interesting dogfight at that time, such as Me-109 vs Me-109, and Spitfire vs Spitfire.

Spitfire vs Spitfire. Have a look at this


and this:-


Also, have a look at a thread from January of this year called True Stories (I can never post links to threads)

FNG. Edited your post to include the [url's] at the start and finish of the address. They work then.

Yep, the S-199 was a real dog..........Jumo 211 engine because they couldn't get DB605's - probably flew nothing like a real 109, so it would have been at a real disadvantage against a Spitfire...

can i be really pedantic and point out that the 109 was the bf109? it was the last messerschmitt design to use the bf designation , i think im right in saying that bf stands for bayern flugzeug or something like that! from the 110 they used me. sorry to be pedantic!
