Me 262

Post by greg higdon » 04 Jul 2005 02:44

I am watching the Military Channel and it specified in 'Secret Soviet of WW2' that Germany allowed the Russian Liberation Army to use it . It used the old Imperial Marking from WW1. Does anyone know if this is indeed true?

do You mean that the ROA did get the Me262 near the end of WW2 for the use against the russian army marked with WWI-roundels of russian origin??

the ROA was

ROA-Schlachtstaffel 8 mit 12 Ju 88
ROA-Jagdstaffel 5 "Oberst Kazakow"mit 16 Bf 109G-10
ROA-Transportstaffel 4 mit 2 Ju 52/3m
ROA-Aufklärungsstaffel 3 mit 2 2 Fi Fi 156 und 1 Me 262(!!)
ROA-Ausbildungsstaffel-Ergänz. mit Do 17, He 111, U-2, Ju-88, Bf-109, Fi-156.
1 LN-Kompanie,
Fallschirmjäger-Batl. 3
1 Lw-Telegraphen-Bauregiment Nr. 12.
as flying units

so only one Me262 for the ROA, markings unknown to me
try http://www.flugzeugforum.de for further information

marking could be: blue andreas cross on white ground with red surrounding
(pictures of 109 & Ju 88 marked like this exist)

There's an additional thread discussing the topic of Me 262s being flown by pilots of the Free Russian Air Force (a German-trained squadron of captured Red Air Force pilots who wanted to free their country from Stalin):
