Me Bf 109 E-3
- E-3 (Similar to E-1 but 2 × 20 mm MG FFs in the wings instead of the MG 17)
To improve the performance of the Bf 109E, the last two real prototypes, V16 and V17 were constructed. These received some structural improvements and more powerful armament. Both were the basis of the Bf 109 E-3 version. The E-3 was armed with the two MG 17s above the engine and one MG FF cannon in each wing. A total of 1,276 E-3 were built, including 83 E-3a export versions.
