Flying his Bf-110G-4 he would maneuver below the unprotected Allied bombers and fire up into them. Once he shot a fully loaded bomber that exploded destroying his own plane. He flew 235 missions with 52 victories, 43 were at night and 50 were 4 engine planes.

The Bf-110G-4 was a dedicated night fighter entering service in late 1942. It received a larger engine and the plane was strengthened to accommodate this. This strengthening allowed the plane to carry heavier payloads resulting in an extended service life. It also had extra protection and carried factory installed airborne interception radar. There were field kits available so each pilot could personalize his aircraft with various armaments to help him achieve a higher rate of success. By mid 1944 the Me-410 was replacing the Bf-110G and in February 1945 production ended.
