German translation - Help needed ( only 3 words )

Good night to all!
I am badly needing some help from GERMAN speaking people to help me to translate to English only 3 words. Some 14 years ago, I received some letters with missions descriptions from Luftwaffe veterans and almost forgot them. I have them translated this year, but the Brazilian translator got some problems with those 3 words. Please, could someone help me to translate these words:
1- BUGRAD ( on the phrase: Landung mit Bugrad )
2- Zielbelsatzung
3- Inanspruchnahme ( from: Der langen Inanspruchnahme mit...)

Thanks in advance for the gentle help and contribution. Although a Baumgartner, I only speak English, Italian and French...

Yours
Adriano

Adriano,

I am not fluent and our German-speaking friends will probably be of more help on this, but I think one of the translations could be:

1. Nosewheel landing. (Bug = Bow, Front, or Nose.)

Re: German translation - Help needed ( only 3 words )

here we go:

1) bugrad - "nose wheel"
2) Zielbelsatzung is no german word - there is ziel (Target) and besatzung (crew) but no Zielbesatzung or anything comparable
3) Inanspruchnahme - "wear" or "strain"

hope that helps
phil

(2) "Zielbesetzung" can be translated with the aspired number of persons in a certain location to fulfil a job, e.g. "the number of crew members at the very moment is four, but the "Zielbesetzung" are nine..."The other possibility would be the "occupation of a target". I´s dppending on the context.
(3) Inanspruchnahme can have the meaning "wear" or "strain" (=excessive use", but can also be translated simply with "use, demands or availment"

Regards

Roland
