Don't forget the Blenheim F ... altitude and speed are a bit less than Bf-110, but maneuverability is OK. Has 2x20mm ...

And the rear-gunner (dual 30cal) is better than the one from the BF-110 (single 30 cal), but all things considered, I always prefer the bf110 over the Blenheim F.

It has a speed, altitude and forward armament advantage over the Blenheim.

In the past I've flown low tier bombers high enough where the RAF Heavies struggle to get to me.  But the Luftwaffe Heavies have no such problems getting high up.  When I do bombers, Heavies in general concern me but the German ones are the worst threats.

If you're talking about Heavies... there really aren't many at those tiers.

 

Focke Wulf Fw57 - tier 3

Generally considered a clubbing monster, the Fw57 is simply devastating at tier 3, with a bombload rivalling its contemporary bombers, firepower that will tear any equal tier airplane to shreds in seconds and a massive tailgun that can do the same in the opposite direction, its a kinda like an SE100 at tier 3. Its only limiting factor is its poor maneuverability; the plane is a lumbering beast in flight. But once you learn to accomodate that, it is hard to find a plane that is quite as good at so many things at tier 3.

 

Messerschmitt Bf110C-6 - tier 4

A bit of a meme plane - the C-6 trades the B's dual 20mm cannons for a single 30mm MK101 backed by quad 7.92mm MG17s. That big stick is kinda its selling point as it outranges anything of its tier and can take massive chunks off people's HP when it hits. Of course, you actually have to hit first and the MK101 is NOT an easy gun to use. Its mixed armament is also a bit of a double-edged sword as it can be difficult to aim both the big stick and the little guns together when an enemy gets into firing range of the little guns... and they little guns can be a dead givaway to an experienced pilot that a C-6 is zeroing in on him if you leave them all on the same trigger control.

 

 

At T3, I can verify the FW57 rules the skies.  But if you get it into a T4 match, you're in trouble.  If you can run the gun on the C-6 at T4, you will clean up.  I prefer the Bf-110B at T4 for the speed.
