Cover: The Armorer ……. It all depends upon the conscientious way in which the armorer carries out his duties whether the pilot of the Me 109 fighting plane emerges as the victor from his next air combat. The pilot must be able to rely implicitly on the work of his armorer – success and performance are based on the cooperation of flyers and ground personnel.
