Bf-109 well known feature is that tail vertical stabilizer is very small compare to other planes but the tail is significant longer.
This makes two things,
First it is hard to control at low speeds
Second because of the long tail rudder is quite effective at Yawing plane left right so pilot can easy bring aim to make a shoot even if nose is quite off the target left/right
