Maybe not, Hentschel flew a total of 1.400 missions, 1.200 with Hans-Ulrich Rudel.
From this point of view it's a poor ratio

It's amazing what you can do out of desperation when you are scared $h!+less because somebody in a grossly superior plane is trying to kill you... :thumbsup:

Did Rudel's Stukas retain the original defensive MGs or was he permitted to change it to something bigger like a MG151/20 ?
