Caudron C.445 LKS 4

The last letters of this aircraft were +QF; does anyone have the full code and history?

This is most likely to be BC+QF - W/Nr.430/9158 which was with LKS 4 from Dec 41. There was also CH+QF and SJ+QF but these had no association with LKS 4

Re: Caudron C.445 LKS 4

OK guys since I have been chastised for moving stuff from one forum to another this is a French airplane used by the Germans with German SKZs. So where does it belong?

Re: Caudron C.445 LKS 4

If it was being operated by FAF, Allied Forum. As it was operated by Luftwaffe this Forum methinks!

Re: Caudron C.445 LKS 4

Hi Michel - Post 4
Thanks for your info
I forgot to add RC+QF so thanks for the addition.
However, the following are typos and mistakes
PC+QF is in fact a typo for BC+QF
PD+QF is a typo for PD+CF (687/9423)
TC+QF is a typo for either TN+GF or TN+QF
I did not include the latter two Stkz because of the ambiguity to which Stkz Block were applied to which W/Nr.Block. Is your TC+QF a mistake or do you have a source for this Stkz?
Only BC+QF has any association with LKS 4

Re: Caudron C.445 LKS 4

Hi Tom

In the list of STkz "long as the arm",I got a little mixed.

TC+QF,read TN+QF
In the series of PD+..,right ,actually there is not PD+Q.,but only PD+CB,PD+CC.....etc etc,last PD+CZ.(in my list)

Def German section.
Even if it was a French original type, it was taken over by the Luftwaffe and ordered in quantity production. I agree 100% with Chris

Cheers

Re: Caudron C.445 LKS 4

I have scanned and enhanced 2 photos from different pilots saying LKS 4-one shows BC, the other QF so that sort of helps us out! Camo was the pale one not green. Thanks all. I should also add I have a photo of SF+DN Wk Nr 800 at FFS (C) 18 in Jun 43
