What is the difference between the 109G6, 109G6 Late, and the 109G6 A/S? Thanks, any version of this plane is my favorite.

The 109G-6AS(AS is the engine designation) is in a class by itself, the best of the lot by far. It flies faster and higher than the other two.

Try the 30mm nose cannon, HeHe.

The Bf 109G6 Late is supposed to have a wooden tail thus being less rugged

I strongly recommend you to read the info from the database that comes with the game. It tells you all the differences between these models.

In RL, the original G-6 had the small standard tail seen on the earlier models of the 109, with the 13mm MG breeches covered by those big bulges just forward of the cockpit. The later model G-6 could have the taller wooden tail (not 'weaker,' more effective & using nonstrategic materials) and/or the Erla Haube canopy, with some slight upgrades to the engine. The G-6/AS utilized a more powerful engine and was more efficient at higher altitudes, while including the G-6 late features. The cowling may or may not have had the more aerodynamic cowling associated with the G-10/K- type 109s. There may also have been differences in the wing bulges, reflecting wider tires, among other things.

In the game, the G-6AS is charactorized by the streamlined cowl and the tall tail/Erla canopy, the G-6 late by the tall tail/Erla/breech bulges, and the G-6 early by breech bulges square canopy and small rudder.

Cheers

This will probably sound like a n00b question, but shouldn't the engine bulges be visible from the canopy in the 109 G-6 and G-14?
