The Messerschmitt Me 410 Hornisse was a low-wing twin-engine heavy fighter developed by the famous German aircraft manufacturer as an evolution of the previous Me-210. The heavy fighter was intended to replace the outdated Bf-110s in the Luftwaffe Squadrons. Powered by two 1,750 HP Daimler-Benz DB603 engines, it could be used to carry out several operational roles.

Heavily armed with four 20mm Mauser cannons and with two 7.92mm machine guns installed in the front of the aircraft, it also featured two remotely controlled MG 131 machine guns housed in side "barbettes" on the fuselage. The initial versions for tactical support and bombing missions could carry an offensive payload of over 500 kg in the internal bomb bay or underwing pylons. Distribution to Luftwaffe Squadrons was implemented from mid-1943. The Me-410 participated in operational activities on various fronts, from Italy and the Balkans to the Eastern Front.
