    I thought that wasp was on Bf 110s of ZG 26? Never heard of a Bf 109 with that.

    I might be wrong but I think Erprobungsgruppe 210 had a 3 Staffel of 109 E's with that wespe.

    S9 + * is their unit code. They later became SKG 210.

    Found this two profiles in book "The Concise Guide to Axis Aircraft of WW2" by David Mondey... The accompanied text to the profiles is:

    - for first profile: Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4/B of ZG 1 (Wespen Geschwader)
    - for second profile: Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4/B of III/SKG 210 based at El Daba in October 1942

    On the dio:

    Bf109E-7, of 9./ZG1, S9+?T, 1942.

    Strange, while in Russia they didnt use airfields together with Fw190 regiments. But it is not looks like Africa on the background.

    There was no such Gruppe as III./SKG 210. SKG 210 only had a Geschwaderstab, I II Gruppen.

    Ant 'Wespe' Bf 109s are III./ZG 1 (from January 1942 onwards).

    Max,

    Shame on you. Man! Erprobungsgruppe 210 did have the unit code of 'S9', but the 109 E-4/Bs of 3. Staffel carried yellow numbers only, and never had a 'Wespe' emblem on their noses.
