Ju88A Stkz. BG+FV W.Nr sought.

Hi, would anybody be able to help identify the serial nbr for Junkers 88A Stkz. BG+FV
This a/c believed to have served with KG1 circa 1940-41.
Any help with this a/c or Stkz batch would be most appreciated.
Best regs,
Steve.

ps. Can't seem to find LEMB Stkz listings any more!

BG+FV 088/5722 already flying 07.03.42 (Baltabol logbook),
Presume manufactured in Jan/Feb. 1942,
and assembled late February by ATG.

However, having secondary powers (own research), query likely is referring to DG+FV.

088/5081 Ju 88 A-1 IV/KG 1 (Lw.Befh.Mitte)
Non-OPS (H) tyre damage on landing (65%) at Münster-Hahndorf Airfield 14.07.1941

Re: Ju88A Stkz. BG+FV W.Nr sought.

Thanks for the many replies so far, it may well be that my timeframe is somewhat suspect.
The information I have is that the code is definitely right, but must have been recorded in use probably during 1942.
Some interesting information and theories so far!
Thanks to all who have contributed.
Kindest regs,
Steve.
