Fire rate1 200 shots/min

The Bf 110 C-6 is armed with:

  • 1 x 30 mm MK 101 cannon, chin-mounted (60 rpg)
  • 4 x 7.92 mm MG 17 machine guns, nose-mounted (1,000 rpg = 4,000 total)

Defensive armament

Turret7.92 mm MG 15 machine gun
Ammunition750 rounds
Fire rate1050 shots/min
Main article: MG 15 (7.92 mm)

The Bf 110 C-6 is defended by:

  • 1 x 7.92 mm MG 15 machine gun, dorsal turret (750 rpg)

Usage in battles

The Bf-110 C-6 is best suited at ground attack and bomber interception roles. The 30 mm chin-mounted cannon can load both HVAP and HE rounds giving it flexibility in both Air RB and Ground RB. The Bf 110 C-6 can intercept bombers, destroy tanks and pillboxes with its 30 mm cannon but struggles in dogfights with fighters unless it had the altitude/energy advantage. The lack of 20 mm cannons leaves the C-6 nothing to fall back on except four machine guns. The C-6 is a great ground attacker in ground battles as the 30 mm cannon can penetrate most tanks at its rank.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 30 mm chin-mounted cannon with HVAP or HE shells and 60 rounds
  • 30 mm HVAP is a very capable tank killer
  • Very maneuverable compared to other German attackers at the rank
  • Flight performance are barely affected when compared to the 110 C-7
  • Four 7.92 machine guns with 1,000 RPG
  • Sturdy airframe and high survivability
  • Armoured around the pilot and gunner

Cons:

  • Lacks 20 mm cannons found on other Bf-110s
  • Cannot carry bombs or rockets
  • Slow acceleration and poor energy retention
  • Large target
  • Single 7.92 mm MG 15 dorsal turret with a limited cone of fire
  • Large elevator is a large but somewhat durable target when cannons aren't involved
  • Lacks armoured glass windscreen, increasing chances of pilot being injured from head-ons

History

The Bf 110C-6 is a twin-engine heavy attack aircraft developed according to a special programme whose objective was to outfit the Bf 110 fighters with a heavy cannon armament. This modification came into existence in the spring of 1939. The aircraft was designed to be equipped with a 30mm MK 101 cannon, while its standard-issue 20mm cannons were dismantled for the purposes of reducing the weight and increasing fuselage space. A series of issues concerning the manufacturing of the MK 101 cannons led to the postponement of the project, but in the summer of 1940, the German government placed an order to assemble a test batch consisting of 12 C-6 aircraft. All the fighters in this batch were deployed in the Battle of France as anti-tank aircraft, as well as in the Battle of Britain to combat enemy ships and destroy enemy radars.
