General info

Flight performance

Describe how the aircraft behaves in the air. Speed, manoeuvrability, acceleration and allowable loads - these are the most important characteristics of the vehicle.

Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.


Offensive armament

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

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 or destroy pillboxes with its 30 mm cannon but struggles in dogfights with fighters. 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


  • 30 mm chin-mounted cannon with HVAP and 60 rounds
  • Very manoeuvrable compared to other German attackers at the rank
  • Four 7.92 machine guns with 1,000 RPG
  • Sturdy airframe and high survivability
  • Armored around the pilot and gunner


  • 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 easily damaged


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.
