Where it is necessary to operate our aircraft (to cover) I has outlined the red big circles.
3) I ask to return to me mine an armoured troop-carrier a company.
Belik.
The Protocol of interrogation of the POW officer didn't find today, but there is a short summary from his indications.

(TsAMO, D.24, p. 139)
POW grasped 24.11 in the region Oblivskaja, belonging 7-th group of air defence 4-n batteries, has shown: the battery in structure of 12 20-mm guns has arrived from the city Rostov in Oblivskaja. Oblivskaja defend up to a regiment of infantry /Germans/, numbering does not know.
Thus in addition to Flak battery and Flak Abteilung was still anti-aircraft group (luftabwehrgruppen).

At the same time, there are no luftabwehrgruppen in the anti-aircraft divisions of the 1st anti-aircraft corps.
In the division's meldungs not information about such groups.
However, Meldung 9th anti-aircraft division reported that in the Stalingradkessel six anti-aircraft groups (numbers not specified).
In Meldung of 9.Flakdiv. from 24.12 it is reported that the group Sell included four anti-aircraft group (numbers not shown).
In my "The Big book of Flak" there is no information about anti-aircraft groups.
In Gliederung of 99th antiaircraft regiment show some anti-aircraft groups.
The 99th anti-aircraft regiment was directly subordinate to the 8th air corps on April 5, 1942.
Before that, the regiment was part of the 3rd anti-aircraft corps in the Vyazma area.
The task of this regiment is air defense of objects on the railway and field airfields. The regiment interacted with the Romanian anti-aircraft artillery (rum.IV.Brigade).
As I understand it, the anti-aircraft groups appear to be designed to protect the airfield and are tied to Luftwaffe flight units.
I gathered information about these groups in the Meldungs, Messages and Maps to find out how many and which luftabwehrgruppen were operating in the Stalingrad area, including the Lower Chira area.
This revealed some interesting details about the ground units of the 4th air fleet, which were created both before and after the beginning of "The Great Russian offensive" (as named in the germans and romanians dokuments the operation Uranus).
