    Please, I would know Luftwaffe's Geschwaderen establishment (unit/aircraft/number; e.g.: St.G 3/Ju 87D-3/69) in North Africa around following dates:

    • 18 April 1941
    • 12 January 1942
    • 23 October 1942

    Thanks for any help,

    I know for February there was: At this time X Fliegerkorps’ aerial strength was limited to two Gruppen of Ju 87s, two Gruppen of Ju 88s, one Gruppe of He 111s, a Staffel of reconnaissance aircraft and a Bf 110 Gruppe (III./ZG 26). The Bf 110s were from 7./ZG 26 and 8./ZG 26 and a few Ju 87 Stukas from I./StG 1 and II./StG 2, some Hs 123 recon planes and a few Fieseler Storches.

    Will check my sources for a more complete list.

    GRANDIOSO!

    Certo che ti ringrazio! ...e quando lo trovavo io!

    Thanks Njaco too. Any further info would be welcomed; actually, fall 1942 OOB isn't quite complete.

    Ciao,

    scrivevo in quel modo perché, ora non mi ricordo chi, me l'hanno postato su questo forum qualche tempo fa

    se hai tempo su ww2.dk puoi cercando unità per unità conoscere la forza per il primo di ottobre e per il primo novembre

    non me sembra male anche quello d'autunno '42 vero mancano i numeri per gli aerei operativi e niehorster a volte fa confusione (nota le 2 lmg per batteria d'artiglieria divisionale nello schema della divisione italiana 1940, quando in effetti sono le stesse delle battaglione d'accompagnamento di fanteria li classificate hmg (e giel'avevo pure scritto)
