Because carriers were planned but not built, the German Luftwaffe was limited to launching from airfields far from open water. As such, they were primarily used against ships near mainland Europe. Despite this, Luftwaffe dive bombers proved devastatingly effective against Allied ships.
Focke-Wulf FW 200 Condor: The Focke-Wulf Fw 200 Condor began its service as an airliner and was the first aircraft to fly non-stop between Berlin and New York. Although used in a variety of roles, the version presented here is a maritime reconnaissance aircraft that was used as a long-range and anti-ship bomber. These aircraft searched for Allied convoys and could perform anti-submarine duties.
Junkers Ju 88: The Ju 88 was one of the most effective and versatile strike aircraft of the war. It served as a medium bomber and armor-breaker on land and could deliver bombs or torpedoes at sea. The Ju 88's high speed allowed it to avoid interception most of the time or outrun fighters when necessary, making it much more survivable than most contemporary Allied designs.
Messerschmitt Bf109: Made famous in the Battle of Britain, the Bf 109 was continually improved throughout the war to remain competitive, although it was to be outclassed by the newer Fw 190. However, by the start of the war she was a formidable fighter, and a fitting counterpart to the Spitfire.
