[80 years ago today] "• The Bf-109T enters operational service. Built by Fieseler for aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin, 63 of the 70 production aircraft are completed as the T-2 version without naval gear such as arrestor hooks as construction of the carrier was suspended in 1940. They are posted to Norway for airfield defense where their short take off capability is useful.

Bf-109T-1, note arrestor hook."

IIRC they also had a Stuka variant with arrestor hook ready to go.  I have seen unit insignias for these intended carrier groups, but does anyone know what sort of camo was planned?

These were also used from Petsamo.  There are pilot reports in Black Cross Red Star 1 about it not being as good to fly.
