FS2004/FSX Messerschmitt Me 109H. The Messerschmitt Bf 109H was designed as a high altitude interceptor. It was cancelled due to the success of the superlative Fw190D/Ta152 series. The first prototype (Bf 109 V.54) flew on 5 November 1943. Initial tests were satisfactory. A second prototype, the Bf 109 V.55, was destroyed in an air raid on 25 February 1944. Further tests on the V.54 produced less impressive results, but work continued on the project. A small number of the pre-production H-0 and H-1s were produced, and were tested by a reconnaissance unit based at Guyancourt, near Paris, but performance was not satisfactory. Original model by David Hanvey and Paul Barry. Modified version with gun/sound effects, instruments and new .air file for FS2004/FSX by A.F. Scrub.
