We need some help regarding KG 40 Bordeaux-Merignac

Hi everyone,

We are currently developing a new Sim call ATWAR(Atlantic Warfare) and we are trying to gather information regarding the following planes from KG 40 located at Bordeaux-Merignac airfield in France :

I have already gone trough many books but the information is still elusive.

Heinkel 111h : Paint scheme, type of armament used and operational history.

Messerschmidt 410 : Paint scheme, type of armament used and operational history.

For anyone who can shed some serious info on these you will get a free copy of the game + forum VIP access on the ATWAR website.

Regards Hans

Re: We need some help regarding KG 40 Bordeaux-Merignac

Early He111H: 1x MG15 in nose, 1x in dorsal position, 1x in rear of Ventral gondola. Some were field-modded to have an extra MG15 in the upper nose. Other field mods included MG15 in beam positions. Port was ALWAYS in the rear window due to the positioning of the radio equipment. Starboard side could be in either window.

A very, very few had a fixed MG15 (I think?) in the tail cone, firing rearward with no aiming.

Later on, the beam positions were upgraded to MG81Z. Nose gun was changed to an MGFF. I believe some had MG131? The front of the ventral gondola was given an MGFF for ground strafing.

The dorsal position was later armoured and given a cover, with framing that reminds me of an armadillo. I believe there were multiple versions... on some, the cover was hinged and folded up, over the gunners head. Later H models had a power-turret with an MG131 in the dorsal position.

Because "so many" of the mods were done in the field, The defensive layout seems to be unit-specific.... ie if one gets beam guns, ALL get beam guns. (only fair, right? )

Camo layout: http://109lair.hobbyvista.com/111/lu...l-70.71.65.jpg Some planes had the same scheme, but reversed left-right (as if seen in a mirror.) Wellenmuster was unique to each plane if applied.

I am more than happy to be corrected on any point.

Re: We need some help regarding KG 40 Bordeaux-Merignac

Specifically them He 111s used by KG 40, not specific to Bordeux-Merignac, were of many marks, both very early (B and/or E as known from very rare photos) and later versions (H-5 to H-6). You need be very specific when creating each (including codes) involved. Here are (some) known Heinkels:

Re: We need some help regarding KG 40 Bordeaux-Merignac

Hi Kenny,

Thank for the quick reply and we already have that info from a book here in team.

What is more problematic for us is to know if the He 111 was loaded with torpedoes or guided missiles to attack shipping in the Bay of Biscay and probably protecting u-boat coming back, i also read they used them against balloon but i am not sure they were from KG 40.

We already know that they didn't stay stationed at Bordeaux and that they had been transfer in Norway as torpedoes bomber so in my opinion they either used them to train torpedoes pilots in the Bay of Biscay or they occasionally attack some shipping.

And our opinion so far for the Me 410 would have be that they used them to protect the airfield against allied bombers run.

If we cannot find any hard evidences we will have to included them as non historically correct in the Sim, that would be better than nothing.

Regards Hans

Hi Sidney,

Thank for the pictures but when i look at the Luftwaffe order of battle they mention that heinkel 111 H and this is the very early heinkel 111 A so i don't know what to think about it?

Many Luftwaffe units kept one or two older aircraft for use as transports and for courier duties.

Re: We need some help regarding KG 40 Bordeaux-Merignac

Hi Hans,

Although Nick Beale already answered your query, please also refer to Ed North's post No.3, more specifically to the following: "... He 111s used by KG 40 ... were of many marks, both very early (B and/or E as known from very rare photos) and later versions (H-5 to H-6)..."

In my post I just wanted to illustrate his point since I have a copy of some of these photos of the older He 111 serving with KG 40.

Regards,
Sinisa

Re: We need some help regarding KG 40 Bordeaux-Merignac

These are clearly not As, having the late engine installation. Es are possible. An assumption would be Js, as these were supposedly built for torpedo-bomber use, but there does not seem to be any strong mounting for the torpedoes visible under the fuselage.
