    first reduce your shot by 1/2.....way too big for your posts, in fact your posts get lost.

    second the Fw 190F and G were of primary help on the Ost front with bombs but also the Panzerblitz rockets which were quite effective along those typical crowded Soviet motorways. Any Kommando even of 15 a/c was created under an assumed Staffelf├╝hrer's name, possibly seperated by the parent unit in 1945 due to the quick light movements of the front.

    ..nice image...

    there's some gen on the activities of Schlachtguppe 4 Geschwader Bongart against the Maquis in central/southern France during June 1944 in the form of a small article on my site...

    "..On 18 June III./SG 4 was ordered to prepare to transfer south to Clermont Ferrand by the chief of staff of II./Fliegerkorps. On 19 June with his aircraft scattered between Laval, Clastres and Villacoublay, Gruppenkommandeur Major Weyert flew from Villacoublay to Bourges to meet with Oberst Hermann-Josef Freiherr von dem Bongart, a former KG 55 Gruppenkommandeur, tasked with leading a specialised 'anti-partisan' unit...".
