He 111 Stammkennzeichen

Does anyone have information as to the model and W.Nr. of VG+EN and DT+YI?

(I can't say the second of these is definitely an He 111 but it seems likely from the context)

Thanks.

DT+YI should be He 111 H-16 WNr. 8307!

Norbert

Hi Norbert - appreciate what you say

I have DN+DZ with W/Nr 8298
The single W/Nr 8299 should be allocated a single Stkz. This is in regular practice of splitting W/Nrs. I also have the same with W/Nr 8359 as a single Stkz allocation
I have DT+YA to YZ with W/Nr 8300 to 8325
W/Nr 8303 was DT+YD/1G+LN which fits.
W/Nr 8326 starts with VH+PA

I expect yours includes W/Nr 8325 as the single Stkz allocation?
Appreciate any extra info - Thanks
Tom

Re: He 111 Stammkennzeichen

If it helps, DT+YI crops up on a sortie by Kdo. Rastedter (Allied info. probably from Y-intercepts) and He 111 W.Nr. 8308 served with 4./FAGr. 5, the successor to the Kommando.

I'm still at the early stages of work on this but it'll all turn up on my website eventually.

Re: He 111 Stammkennzeichen

Hi Tom,
you present a very good case here. I have to go back and verify the data. It does make sense that 8303 was DT+YI since my 8307 (DT+YI) was with KG 27 and not with Kdo. Rastedter as confirmed by Nick.

Regarding the gap for 8359: mine is actually from 8356 to 8359. I have no Stkz. for 8356 to 8358.

Regards,
Norbert
