Horst-Günther von Fassong

Hi Michael

My impression is that indeed Hackl was the leading ace of JG 11. However, there is a considerable gap in the victory list that I have for him from May 1944 through October 1944. He appears to have claimed a number of victories during this time but it is not known if these were with JG 11 or JG 76. He also appears to have made a number of claims with JG 11 in 1945. We will have to wait until the relevant Die Jagdfliegerverbände der Deutschen Luftwaffe 1934 bis 1945 volumes are published for more clarity. As for von Fassong the best evidence that I have seen places his total number of claims in the 75 to 80 range.
