Masquerading as a civilian airliner during the mid-1930s, the Heinkel He 111 medium-range bomber saw its first combat in 1936 with Germany's Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War. The initial stages of World War II confirmed the design's prominent role in advancing the German blitzkrieg in Poland and France. However, it was during the 1940-41 air battles over Britain that the type's defensive shortcomings became apparent. Easily recognised with its greenhouse nose, the He 111 was one of the most widely used Luftwaffe aircraft of WWII and saw use as a bomber and transporter over nearly every warfront. Later models were successfully used in antishipping and glider tug roles. A post-war model, the CASA 2.111, was flown by Spain's air force until the late 1950s, and as a transport aircraft into the 1970s.
