Sturmbock / Sturmstaffel 1 - Validity of description.

Please comment on this description. Accurate? Hope Erich Brown is around.

Each pilot of Sturmstaffel 1 signed an oath that he would shoot down at least one bomber per mission or as a last resort ram an enemy bomber. Pilots of Sturmstaffel, although not criminal, joined to clear past infraction from their record or to advance more quickly in the LW.

This description makes it sound like a kamakazi unit of the French Foreign Legion.
