Pretty neat indeed! Good stuff on the "tactics" of busting a Stalin tank. :eek: And the towing of anti-aircraft guns behind tanks.Never read about that before.

Good stuff Erich !!
I did not know they had women instructors for the Me-262. Do you think it was Hanna R. (can't spell her last name)?
I also did not know they trained to be a pilot for two years. Americans only trained about a year. Maybe that is why they were so good.
Thanks for posting this. Hope RB sees it !

Great interview. Interesting about the guy who destroyed the KV-II and had the turret go right on over him. Will be adding this website to my bookmarks.

Printed it off last nite and read it a couple of times. What is the raid on the Oder bridges he describes? Very intriguing stuff...

Do you have anymore info Erich???

Red you're sharp !

Yes in fact the raid on the Oder bridges will be covered in our massive work. It was to be held in secret and this was to involve literally a suicide mission of single-engine and jets to smash into the bridges over the Oder to stop the Soviet hordes.

do I have more on first person Stuka accts the man wants to know ! ........... hee, hee......wait and see friends

I wish I could say.........still sorting through pics and my author friend is healing up after a vicious attack from a neighborhood dog. It opened his arm up really bad from the wrist up to the elbow, plus part of his face was torn open..........Yuk !

my suggestion is to buy the JG 300 two volume set and our book fits in the end of the first volume and the beginnings of the second.

May I ask what variant of the Ju 87 are you most interested in to model ?, and no I have not seen your completed text either, I think we were waiting for you to finish it first, left at the first draft. so I am assuming then it is completed and submitted ?

more to come !

Sorry, but thats a great pic... :cool:

I am still wondering about the op on the op on the Oder River... But do you have any reports of Stukas at Crete or in support of airborne ops???

While she might have looked good back then, you do NOT want to see that chick nowadays (she's my neighbor). As for the Oder River raids, I have no PRO (or otherwise) documents that even suggest that raid even happened - however some friends in Germany have confirmed that they are knocked out to this day. Some locals report that German or Russian planes did it (makes no sense for the Russians to do that) so I think if we look hard enough we might find something.

Just an idea for you, RedBaron - try to get hold of the old Osprey/DelPrado book, Junkers Ju87 Over The Mediterranean by John Weal ( 1999 ). This was in the 'Aircraft Of The Aces' series and has lots of colour profiles of Stukas.

This particular edition is worth seeking out as it features a really striking Ian Wyllie painting on the cover, showing an 87B of Stg77 attacking a British cruiser during the Crete campaign. ( I'd love to have the original painting...)

That would be Martin Pegg, right ? It will be interesting to see this book ; Peter C. Smith seems to have almost made a one-man cottage industry of writing Stuka books.

( PS : Eeeugh, Erich - sounds nasty ! :eek: Hope all is OK at the hospital for you..... :( )

Very interesting, the part that really got me, was this;

 

"I had maybe 30 tanks to my credit when I went into the hospital. So I got most of them from December '44 on.  The last part of the war in the north the Russians had tanks everywhere.  Our unit destroyed 20 to 30 tanks every day, just using the Stuka.  It was a tank cemetery up there.  But it would seem that the next day they would have 50 new ones.  We stopped counting the number of tanks we destroyed.  One time I destroyed three tanks in one pass.  It was really an accident.  The three tanks were lined up in a village and I lined up with the rear one.  My captain came in from the side.  I opened fire on the last and destroyed it but my guns would not stop firing, so I lined up on the next one, destroyed it, and then lined up on the front one and destroyed it also.  My captain was pleased but upset because every time he would line up on a tank I would destroy it."
