What these abbreviations mean: A, Ge, unv, f-FSA?
If it were in the night, record 20 1 45 meant 19/20, or 20/21 January?

I have two question about...

What kind of unit is a Schlep,gr ? It seems to be a towing unit but then why to use Ju87G-2 for that ?
and did some one knows how they can lost 12 airplanes in one day ?

Thanks,
Olivier

A Schleppgruppe was, as you suggest, a glider towing unit and the Ju 87 could tow a DFS 230 for example.

The losses at Posen (now Poznan, Poland) were probably due to the Russians overrunning the airfield. That's what had happened at nearby Schroda (Sroda) on 20 January, flyable aircraft being evacuated and others being blown up.

Re: Luftwaffe losses in the east 20-30.01.1945

Thanks for useful answer Mr Beale,

And I find the explanation for Ju87G-2 in a glider towing unit (I remember also one Ju87D that surrender at Kitzinger still with the towing equipment):

"in April44, 87 aircraft had actually been converted to Ju87G-2s, although 70 of these ended up being allocated to the OKL Reserve until such time as sufficient BK weapons became available to arm them, while 4 more went to Pilot Training and only 13 reached operational units" from "Junker Ju87 from dive bomber to tank buster, Eddie J.Creek, 2012" p 273
