Fieseler Fi 156 Storch

Post by Pips » 15 Jun 2021 05:29

I know the Storch was used in the liaison, transport and medical evacuation role on every Front the Germans fought, and offensively in Yugoslavia to spot and attack Partisans.

Was it also used (and if so how successfully) in the front-line aerial reconnaissance and artillery spotting role? To what units would the aircraft be allocated, and anyone know of combat loss causes eg flak, fighter etc.

A really good book recommendation on the subject would be greatly appreciated. :)
