In the Battle of Britain, the Bf 109 was at a disadvantage due to its short range. During the Battle, after escorting bombers from their bases in northern Europe, the Messerschmitt had only around 15 minutes of fuel for combat over southern England. However, in the hands of experienced pilots, it proved to be a formidable weapon, gaining the full respect of RAF pilots.
