Looking for info on Luftflotte 4 during the Second Jassy–Kishinev offensive

Post by kiwibirb » 29 Jan 2024 13:48

Hello all, I am currently trying to research the aircraft available to support Army group South Ukraine during the Jassy–Kishinev disaster

It is noted that during the first Jassy–Kishinev offensive by the Red Army, the Rumanian and German air forces contributed in large part to the successful defense, yet in August it seems the Luftwaffe had little impact.

An acquaintance provided me with this general summary, but some of the units seem doubtful;

1. (F) / Nacht (Do17)

Stabs/SG-2
I,II/SG-2 (Fw190)
III/SG-2 (Ju87)

https://www.ww2.dk/air/attack/sg2.htm
10./SG-2 (Ju87 Panzerjager) & III/SG-10 (Fw190)
Apparently, this group was temporarily transferred to Poland/Baltics in late July/early August - but was it back in romania by 20.August?

I/KG-4 (He111H20)

2. /NAGr 14 (Bf109G8)
I./JG-53 (Bf109G6)
III./ JG-77 (Bf109G6)
7./H-32 (Fw189 recon)
