Red face Re: Aircraft that did not quite produce a full top ace

Dear Michael,

Try looking at FalkEins and you will find some more information about the Arado Ar-196 being used in combat.
Brief Example from FalkEins:"..a bold feat of arms by our Arado crews-an Arado 196 recce Staffel on Crete claim four Beaufighters shot down."
Unfortunately as I said before,no information on who were to top-scoring pilots of the Arado Ar-196s. If there would be a few aces,great.

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao

Re: Aircraft that did not quite produce a full top ace

Here's another one, though a probable:

According to the book 'Vliegvelden in Oorlogstijd' an Ar 196 crew was credited with a Stirling victory on the 1st of July 1941.

Hello Edward,

FalkeEins reveals at least one Arado Ar 196 scorer: Günther Kurth.

The venerable Henschel Hs 129 also scored a number of "kills" in East, including by those flown by Rumanian pilots.

Re: Aircraft that did not quite produce a full top ace

I would not venture to declare the winner, as I didn't sum up (yet) the victories I know about. Perhaps Martin Pegg's new book will give you the answer.

Pegg just published a revised edition of his book. Check out the Books sub-forum.

Re: Aircraft that did not quite produce a full top ace

Brian Cull's book "Fighters over the Aegean" has a number of incidences recorded of combat between Beaufighters and Arado 196's. The Arados were successful on quite a few occasions.
I am aware also that the Arados also caused some concern to RAF Coastal Command Whitleys and a RN Submarine (HMS Seal).

I suppose the Beaufighters were torpedo bombers ?

Cheers,
