Re: FW.190 night fighter loss, June 12/13 1944, Rouen

Thank you once again for the replies everyone.

So, possibly a Bf-109 of I./JG 301?

Regards

Simon

The I./JG 301 was moved to France from Germany during the next day (13.06.44).

Simon,

There were several NJG 3 and NJG 4 claims between Rouen and Amiens that night...and at least one KG 51 claim over England! Maybe a mis-identification from the gunners? Does Theo Boithen do have more details about the night activies? He may have more data for you.

Dear all,

Heavy bomber claims during the French raids on 12-13.6.44 amounted to 15 night fighters destroyed and five damaged. Set against these numbers, I have only found two Nachtjagd loss records for the night, both for twin-engined Nachtjäger. There were no single-engined fighter losses. Will give full details plus a very detailed analysis of the night's raids, battles and claims on both sides in one of the upcoming volumes in the Nachtjagd Combat Archive series.

Cheers, Theo

Many thanks once again for the replies. Very informative and interesting!

I think the title of my post should have read "Possible Luftwaffe night-fighter loss June 12/13 1944, possibly near Rouen."

Regards

Simon
