Bf 110G-2s that found their way into the services of Nachtjagdgeschwader 200 on the eastern front were used in a way worth noting. The standard Bf 110G-2 modified to M1 standard (cannon tub under the fuselage) with no on-board radar or radio modifications, was used for night fighting using the guidance system of Freya and Wurzburg (Helle Nachtjagd). The character of the war on the eastern front was hardly conducive to this type of warfare, but the actions of NJG 200 illustrates the need for the protection of German assets and supply lines against Soviet night attacks. Along with the mounting of anti-aircraft defenses on rail cars, NJG 200, as 'Eisenbahn Geschwader' was able to operate in required locations along sections of the eastern front. The aircraft carries a somewhat dark camouflage scheme of RLM 74/75/76 with yellow identification markings. The white fuselage Balkenkruez is sprayed over irregular squiggles of 74, which is consistent with the time period of 1943-44. The red Staffel color appears on the spinner tips. All of the presented schemes display an effort to darken the overall scheme with the additional spraying of irregular squiggles of RLM 74/75. These also serve to break up the well defined edge between the upper surface colors and the sideRLM76 surfaces. The inside surfaces of the vertical tails were treated in a similar fashion.
