Description:
This addon was designed to run along side IFA3 and functions almost the same as the planes in that addon. This addon also uses some code from the Arma 3 Samples. Work is still needed, but the aircrafts are fully functional.

History:
The Messerschmitt Bf-109 is a German fighter aircraft that was used during World War II. It is considered by many as the backbone of the Luftwaffe and was used from 1937 to 1945. It first few on May 29, 1935 and first saw combat during the Spanish Civil War in 1937. The aircraft was originally designed as an interceptor, but saw multiple uses for escorts, fighter bomber, ground attack, and reconnaissance missions throughout all European fronts during World War II. Compared to other German aircrafts at the time, the Bf-109 was the most common aircraft that the Allies faced in aerial combat and remained very competitive against the latest Allied aircraft throughout the entire duration of the war. The Bf-109 has had many variants during its time of service which includes:
Bf-109a/b/c/d - planned
Bf-109e - Included in addon
Bf-109f - Included in addon
Bf-109g - Included in addon
Bf-109h (prototype)
Bf-109k - WIP

Bf-109 v-13 & v-14 (air racer)
Bf-109w (sea plane)

Description of this Addon:
This adds the Bf-109 to Arma 3. Variants included in this addon are:

Bf-109f with 7 textures

Current Version: v1.9
Addon is signed and includes a bikey.
All 3D models were made from scratch using Blender.
All textures were made using Photoshop.
I have included a texture template of the models for anyone who wishes to create and upload their own textures since I'm not very good at texturing.
Texture template can be found under: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 3\!Workshop\@Messerschmitt Bf-109\texture templates

To install Messerschmitt Bf-109 you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
