i know this is pretty easy, but i cant find the info. can someone tell me the

weight
top speed
ceiling
range
and the type of engine and how much horse power

for the 109 k4 or any one of the k series 109s. its for a school project and i cant find the info. its all for e or f series lol. thanks for the help

Weight was 3362 kg at takeoff, fully equipped and loaded with fuel, lubricant, boosting liquid, ammunition etc, including weight of pilot, but without any external stores like droptank, bombs or gondola cannons.

Top speed was 710 km/h at 7500 meter altitude. Some sources state 727, but this refers to an advanced propeller that was not serialised.

Absolute ceiling was 12 900 meters, this is the maximum altitude the plane could get to, not to be confused with operational or service ceilings, which are defined by a given rate of climb that was still available (0.5 m/sec, 2.5 m/sec etc).

Range was approximately 1000 km on internal fuel, and apprx. 1600 km with a droptank, at maximum range cruising, at around 400-450 km/h; the often quoted figures of about 560-600km refer to maximum speed cruising (at around 645 km/h), without a droptank.

Three types of engines were used, all of them optimized for high altitude at around 6-9000 meters:

DB 605DM, an early engine, with 1800 PS at takeoff, at 1.75 ata manifold pressure, with MW-50 water injection boost. 150 grade fuel was used, designated C-3.

Later this was replaced by the DB 605DB/DC engines, which were the same engine but could be converted into each other easily. The difference was the fuel used:

DB 605DB, running on 87 octane avgas and MW-50 boost, or alternatively 150 grade fuel C-3, at 1.8ata manifold pressure developing 1850 PS initially, later with delayed ignition 1800 PS.
DB 605DC, running on 150 grade fuel C-3 and MW-50 boost, at 1.98ata manifold pressure developing 2000 PS at takeoff.
Altitude output of both DB and DC engines above 4.9 km were the identical.

A total of 1700 Bf 109K-4s were produced between August 1944 and March 1945; figures missing for April 1945. Deployed to units in October 1944, apprx. 200 entered service by the end of the month; 314 were in service by 31 January 1945. In March 1945, it was decided to eventually equip all Bf 109 units with K-4 to standardize equipment.

Only K-4 was produced; K-6 (armored heavy fighter w. 3 MK 108s) was tested, but did not enter service. Other planned variants include K-8, K-10, and the high altitude armored heavy fighter K-14 (3xMK 108 cannons, DB 605L extreme high altitude engine) as a backup for Ta 152 project. However, a 'bastard' hybrid, the G-10 was built in large numbers (2600) parellel to K-4: this type was essentially a 109G airframe, with many internal components incl. the DB 605D engine and the new 2000 W generator taken from the 109K. Therefore factories had not to retool for the K-series airframe.

Remember that there are many types of range, combat range, absolute range, etc
