Working on the database, I just noticed I forgot to post the following Erla G-10 among the late war standardized camouflage patterns tails:

Bf 109 G-10 W.Nr.152 354 "Schwarze 2", I./JG 4, Kleinhau, 18 December 1944. Hildebrandt 1988, p. 5

Marc,

how I wrote --- be careful with captions taken from other books! Your "Erla G-10" with "late war standardized camouflage pattern tails" is the Bf 109G14/AS W.Nr. 782354 "black 2" from 14./ JG 4, Oblt. Ernst Scheufele. Beside this ... an Erla W.Nr. 152 354 didn't exist.

Regards
Rasmussen

Rasmussen,

Thanks again for correcting me; I'm deeply indebted to all researchers who help correcting the content of this database.
Looking also forward to be one of your first avid reader for your upcoming Erla book;-)


Oberst,

Thanks for your precision.

Cheers
Marc

The crashed enemy aircraft reports for the following aircraft report different marking colors:

G-14 WN460520 Blue 11 (not Black) I have 2 additional views of this aircraft.

G-14 WN610783 Red 11 (not Yellow) I have an additional right side view of this aircraft.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

The rudder is angled and fully hit by the sunlight at a rather low height... Not the best conditions to determine anything, IMHO.

And yes, it is a classical G-14.

Re: Late war Bf 109 pictures source

It's an Erla built Bf109G-14 and it's either quite dirty or maybe it's the low light in combination with the semigloss paint that makes the 76/75/74 camoflage loose it's contrast. The rudder as well as the rest of the tail should be RLM76 mottled in the topcolors. Although hard to spot it looks like the typical "spotted mottle" used on Erla 109's at least in 1943 and 1944.
