Macchi C. 205V Veltro in II./JG 77

Hi!

II./JG 77 used Macchi C. 205V Serie III Veltro in combat? During how much time?

I only have Ali e Colori 5 (Italian Colors 5) "Aer.Macchi
202-205", that they has some profiles, but few information on II./JG 77. This book says that II./JG 77 was only gruppe of all the Luftwaffe to be equipped with the MC.205 Veltro.

Cheers,
Franklin

From 06.11.43 the unit was again in comat. The first combat flight was conducted on 08.11.43 and the MC-205`s fougt (without results) with 50 B-17.
