Luftwaffe Close Ground Support & Anti-Tank Operations - Postwar Report By Former Luftwaffe Major General

Post by Richard Stone » 30 Mar 2024 04:14

The attached article is a condensed English translation of an April 1950 German military report about the Luftwaffe’s close ground support and anti-tank operations that was printed in a Swiss military journal.

The majority of the report discusses the use of these missions on the Eastern Front. The report includes information about the Luftwaffe organization, signals and communications methods, armament and tactics, aircraft types used and a general summary of some mission results.

This copy of the article was printed in the March 1951 edition of the USA professional military reference magazine ‘Military Review’.
