After the Ju88 with over 6200 units built, the He 111 became the most prolific bomber of the German Luftwaffe during the Second World War. Although it was inferior to all Allied Bombers, it remained in mass production until the autumn of 1944. The He 111 first saw service during the Spanish Civil War. Out of an aircraft with a stepped nose with limited visibility forward and down, evolved abomber with a fully glazed asymmetric nose section that became the trademark of the He111. This version received the designation He111P. From the end of 1941 the He 111 was considered to be outdated due to its poor accuracy. Despite this, mass production of the He111H-6 continued. The aircraft was fitted with the Junkers Jumo 211F-1, a 12 cylinder engine with a capacity of 35 liters giving a power output of 1350 Bhp. It was one of the most advanced engines of the period. In the torpedo bomber role the H-6 could carry two LT F5b aerial torpedoes externally under the fuselage - instead of an external bomb load of up to 2500 kg. As the war continued the He 111 also played an increasingly important role as a transport aircraft. With a production run of 1775 units the H-6 was the largest volume production model of the He111 series. They were used up until the end of the War.
