Me109´s unit

Post by Douglas Jr. » 10 Jan 2003 01:26

Hi,

The black solid triangle means that this airplane (possibly a Me109E-7) belonged to a Schlachtgeschwader (Ground Attack Unit). At that time there was only one Geschwader especialized in ground support, and they fought in Balkans and the Russian Front. They replaced their Me109´s for the Focke-Wulf FW190F during the summer of 1943.

So, it is quite possible that the unit is the Schlachtgeschwader 1 (Schl.G 1). However I couldn´t identify which was the Gruppe, although they had only one Gruppe up to 1942, if I´m not mistaken.

Hope it helps you a bit. :wink:

Regards,

Douglas

Hi Tom, welcome, I'm glad you managed to solve the login problem. That certainly looks like a Stuka to me.

Best regards/ Daniel

I may be tempting not to post on this thread because it is 19 years old, but since these photos were taken in 1941, and the Germans did not invade Crimea until October of that year, it is unlikely that these images were taken in Crimea.
