Need Help with Squadron Dates and Plane Types

Recommended Posts

Everyone,

 

We require your assistance in creating a list of squadrons for both the VVS and Luftwaffe that flew in Battle of Moscow, Stalingrad and Kuban. And this is just for the plane-set we have/will have in the game. The time periods in question are:

 

Moscow: 02.oct.1941 .. 20.apr.1942
 
Stalingrad: 23.aug.1942 .. 02.feb.1943
 
Kuban: 17.apr.1943 .. 09.oct.1943
 
Please list:
 
Squad No. / Name
Dates Squad flew in Theater
Type of Planes Flown 
Dates Plane Types were Changed 
Airfields
 
Please post your information below and try to keep discussions to a minimum. Please try to just focus on providing data.
 
The final list of squads to be included int he first iteration of the Career is up to the team. Your assistance in this thread will help us choose the best candidates to be included. As knowledgeable a we are, we cannot know every squadron in every theater.
 
Jason, Han and Sneaksie

In general the Nafziger collection is very good but hard to search and very hit or miss.  I keep looking for data but here is one document I found.

 

The index to the collection is here http://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/p4013coll11/id/1277

 

http://usacac.army.mil/cac2/CGSC/CARL/nafziger/944GCLA.pdf is a link to Luftwaffe Fighter Forces Eastern Front 26 March 1943

LukeFF - You are wrong about II./Schl.G.1 and Stab./ZG1 in Stalingrad.

 

Thor - II./ZG26 was not converted to night fighters. It became I./ZG2.

8./Schl.G.1 operated as a part of I./Schl.G.1, and was a part of "Messerschmitt-Gruppe".

II./Schl.G.1 used only Hs129 and Hs123 (7./Schl.G.1), and was purely a"Henschel-Gruppe".


And for ZG1 bases, Holm's website is sometimes not full, sometimes just wrong.

Would we be getting a Veliki Luki career? There were only 3 Soviet squadrons in the area, the 3rd, 17th and 222nd Long Range Aviation Divisons, with PE-2s, I believe. Also, for Veliki Luki, we would need AI KVs to participate in the attacks, not just T-34s which always attack in the campaign.

Addenum for post #12 by LukeFF (on JG 3 at Stalingrad):

 

Beginning with II./JG 3 (in August, the rest followed in September) JG 3 was withdrawn from frontline service for a period of rest & refit. No missions were flown in that timeframe. It was rushed back to the Stalingrad region after the commencement of Operation "Uranus". 

 

Addenum for post #13 by LukeFF (on JG 52 at Stalingrad):

 

I./JG 52 - The Gruppe suffered a breakdown of morale and combat capability following losses and the strain of combat in late October / early November. Following that it was temporarily withdrawn from frontline service to be rebuilt in the rear area of the front.

 

II./JG 52 - The Gruppe was transfered out of the Stalingrad area on September 1 1942 and went to the Kuban region. It was rushed back to the Stalingrad region only after the commencement of Operation "Uranus".

 

III./JG 52 - incorrect. The bulk of the Gruppe was operational over the Caucasus and the advancing 1st Panzer Army (outside the map). Present at Stalingrad was only a detachment of III./JG 52 led by Olt. Otto Decker (following his capture by Olt. Hermann Graf). The detachment contained a Schwarm from every Staffel. The pilots were:

 

7./JG 52 - Ofw. Zwernemann, Fw. Dammers, Uffz. Meier, Uffz. Koppe

8./JG 52 - Olt. Decker, Lt. Funcke, Uffz. Ermisch, Uffz. Hohenberg - later also: Uffz. Schumacher, Uffz. Lotzmann and Fw. Wachowiak

9./JG 52 - Olt. Graf, Ofw. Fuellgrabe, Uffz. Kalb, Ofw. Suess and later also Uffz. Wolf

 

I./JG 53 - The Gruppe was withdrawn from the Eastern Front on September 27 1942 and transfered to the Mediterranean.

Updated my post above for Sch.G.1 at Stalingrad. 

 

 

 

III./JG 52 - incorrect. The bulk of the Gruppe was operational over the Caucasus and the advancing 1st Panzer Army (outside the map). Present at Stalingrad was only a detachment of III./JG 52 led by Olt. Otto Decker (following his capture by Olt. Hermann Graf). The detachment contained a Schwarm from every Staffel.

 

 

True, but if we want the player to continue on with III./JG 52 at Kuban, then it might be best to keep this name. The other option would be to just rename the unit when it gets to Kuban, which is something the career generator can handle (it happens a lot in ROF). So, call the unit "Kommando/KG52" on the Stalingrad map and 'III./JG 52" on the Kuban map, perhaps?

II.(Schlacht)/LG 2 is a difficult topic as exact bases are not really known and neither are transfer dates. It is known that they began "Typhoon" from two landing strips called "Moshna" and "Belyy", but I have been unable to find those. It is also known that they mostly operated in the area of Kalinin, being based at Kalinin-Süd on October 21/22 1941 while flying round-the-clock missions against soviet forces attacking 1st Panzer Division. It is also known that the Gruppe was temporarily shifted to Staraya Russa at some point in December 1941 and then showed up at Dugino in January 1942, but again exact dates are not available.

 

As for the Hs 129 ...

 

In early April 1943 only 8.(Pz)/SchG 1 was based in the area (at Kertch V, before relocating to Anapa) with 4.(Pz)/SchG 1 being at Stalino and 13.(Pz)/JG 51 being at Kharkov. It is, however, also known that both of the latter units suffered losses due to enemy fire on May 8 and 13 (4./SchG 1) and May 29 (13./JG 51) near Krymskaya so they must have been transfered into the area in the meantime. But where to? No idea (probably also Anapa).

Oh damn, you're right. The two Hs 129 Staffeln of SchG 2 would not appear on the Eastern Front before Kursk.
