Re: Stalingrad order of battle

Thank you very much, I am still researching - you gave me good info so far to make my research.After I finish I will post it here just in case anyone else needs it.

BTW: where can I find a structure map of german units during 1942 (I am most interested to see Luftflotte 4).

Re: Stalingrad order of battle

Oxley, I managed to extract info for JG3, JG52 and JG53, but I have a problem with JG77: I looked at all JG77 units and between august and december 1942 none of them were present at Stalingrad (they were South of Stalingrad in Caucasus).Can you please direct me to a source where it says JG77 was present at Stalingrad ?

PS: is Krasnogwardeisk an airfield near Stalingrad ? it is the only one I wasn;t able to locate.

Re: Stalingrad order of battle

The information I posted is available in the book "The Luftwaffe Data Book", by Alfred Price.

It shows the OOB of Fighter Units in Luftwaffe 4 (as listed above) as of 27 July, 1942, at the start of the Summer Offensive. It wouldn't hold necessarily for the whole of the period you are looking at.

Re: Stalingrad order of battle

The order of battle of the Lw in july 1942 published in "The Luftaffe data book" includes I and II/JG54 in both Luftflotte 1 and Luftwaffenkommando Ost.
The number of Bf.109 operated is different:
Luftflotte 1
I./JG 54 40 - 25
II./JG 54 40-28

Luftwaffenkommando Ost

I./JG 54 43- 27
II./JG 54 40-33

What's wrong?

Thanks.
