Stuka and Schlacht aces

Post by Victor » 28 Jul 2002 10:47

Well, everybody has heard about H. U. Rudel, but there must have been other pilots who destoyed many Allied tanks. I have found only little info on the others. Erich said he is working on such a list, maybe he could share it with us? :D

Schlachtflieger....

Post by Erich » 28 Jul 2002 19:17

Hi guys !

Yes still working on the listing which will be long for sure. "Immelmann had quite a few notables as did # 77 and of course the individual Panzer staffeln with the Hs 129 and Ju 87D and G variants.

I'll post once my list gets a bit larger.

Juha has given us a start.

Hptm. Frank Neubert, Gruppenkommandeur of I./StG 2, II./SchG 1, II./SG 101 flew about 350 missions (on the Ju-87 and on the Hs-129B-2). In fact he was the pilot who obtained the first aerial victory in WWII on 1 September 1939. He also sank in 1941, one freighter, one destroyer and one tanker in the Gulf of Corinth. He received the KC in June 1941.
However, I do not know how many tanks he destroyed.

How many kills did Hptm Otto Weiss (the Lion of Kalinin) had? I am curious how much he achieved with the Hs-123.

Neubert in the Hs 129 ? I'll have to check that. Victor my notes are scattered all over my office mixed up with my day fighter data at the moment. Problem of working on too many things at once......will try and check on Weiss soon.

I would be interested to know more about Oberleutnant Anton Andorfer. I know that in 1943 he already had 400 Stuka missions. He must have destroyed at least a few tanks. He also flew in Grupul 3 Stuka as liaison officer.
