Successful Fw 190D9 and Ta 152 pilots.

I was wondering if anyone had a list or further information about successful pilots who flew the Fw 190D9 and the Ta 152. I know Dortenmann had the most claims with the Fw 190 D9, but I was wondering if there was further information on other pilots. Thank you.

Walter Loos' Ta 152 "claims" were expressly denied by Loos himself in an unpublished interview given to Jean-Yves Lorant in the late 70's

Do you know which Ta 152 pilots shot down 5 or so victories, and other than Dortenmann, any other successful 190d9 pilots?

Re: Successful Fw 190D9 and Ta 152 pilots.

there were no Ta 152 pilots with '5 or so victories'. IV./JG 51 Heinz Marquardt had a similar victory total to Dortenmann on the Dora. Some sources give Kommandeur IV./JG 51 Oblt. Guenther Josten seven vics on one sortie at the controls of a Dora...

This sound like top mission score for the type. Do you have more info to share please? (I make plastic kits and this will be nice to have kit of this particular plane)

Cheers

Thank you for the information. I also thought Keil had 5 victories with the 152?

Hi,

Oberleutnant Günther Josten is said to have claimed seven aerial victories on 25 April 1945 while flying with the Stab of IV./J.G. 51. The source for this is Ernst Obermaier. These were his 172nd to 178th claims.


Cheers,
Andrew A.

Keil gives an account in Jean-Yves Lorant's old Docavia book 'Le Fw 190' - in it he talks of 'probable' victories.
