Messerschmitt Bf 110G-2 5./ZG1 (2N+EN) Germany Spring 1944.

Messerschmitt Bf 110 C1 Zerstörer 5./ZG1 (2N+GN) pilot Manfred Dahne and his Bordfunker Herbert Klinke WNr 2831 Battle of France 1940

Photo 01: Bf 110C-1, W. Nr. 2831, of Fw. Manfred Dahne and his Bordfunker Herbert Klinke. Dahne and Klinke took part in II./ZG1's excursion over Switzerland on 8 June 1940. W.Nr.2831, 2N+GN, 5./ZG 1, flown by Fw.Manfred Dähne, Bordfunker Ogfr. Herbert Klinke.

Messerschmitt Bf 110C Zerstörer 5./ZG1 (2N+GN) pilot Manfred Dahne June 8 1940 01

Photo 01: The result of Dahne and Klinke's flight over Switzerland on 8 June. Dahne managed to put 2N+GN down in good condition following a fighter attack from a Swiss Bf-109 and hits from Flak. Both were repatriated. Dahne was killed in action later in the Battle of Britain; Klinke, after recovering from his wounds, went on to serve on the Russian front with SKG210 and ZG1 and survived the war.

Messerschmitt Bf 110C Zerstörer 5./ZG1 (2N+GH) 01

Photo 01: 2N+GH forms a backdrop for Victor Mölders and Staffelhund during the Western campaign. The fuselage cross is draped with an identical covering to that seen in an earlier photograph of a ZG52 Bf 110.

This crew, during the Battle of France on June 8, 1940, came into conflict with units of the Swiss armed forces. 2N+GN first flew into concentrated anti aircraft fire over Belfort (France, and was subsequently attacked by French fighters. With a damaged starboard engine and an escort from another Bf 110, an attempt was made to reach friendly airspace. Due to a navigational error, the Swiss border was breached. Over Breitenbach, further AA was encountered, followed by an attack by Swiss Bf-109s, 2N+GN was made to force land at Oberkirchen. The crew was temporarily interned before being repatriated. Manfred Dahne returned to combat duty, but lost his life over England on August 25, 1940. Herbert Klinke bore the brunt of having shot down a Swiss aircraft, went on to fly over the Russian Front, and unlike Dahne, survived the war.

Tato posádka se v době Bitvy o Francii, 8. června 1940, dostala do konfliktu se Švýcarskými ozbrojenými silami. 2N+GN nejprve vletěl do silné protiletadlové palby nad Belfortem (Francie, poté byl napaden francouzskými stíhači. S poškozeným pravým motorem se pilot v doprovodu další stodesítky pokoušel dosáhnout vlastního území, ale díky špatnému odhadu kursu vlétl do švýcarského vzdušného prostoru. U Breitenbachu se stroje opět dostaly do protiletadlové palby a po následném útoku švýcarských Bf-109 byl 2N+GN nucen u Oberkirchenu nouzově přistát. Posádka byla na krátkou dobu internována a poté repatriována do Německa. Manfred Dähne se vrátil k bojovým letům, ale 25.8.1940 zahynul nad Anglií. Herbert Klinke, který strávil několik měsíců rekonvalescencí, vznesl nárok na sestřelení švýcarského stroje. Později létal na ruské frontě, a na rozdíl od Dähneho válku přežil.

Messerschmitt Bf 110G2 Zerstörer 5./ZG1 (2N+MN) Wells Austria winter 1943-44

As a component of 'Reichverteidigung' (Defense of the Reich, this rocket and tub-mounted 20 mm cannon armed Bf 110G-2 of Zerstoregeschwader 1 carries a standard camouflage composed of RLM 74/75/76. Notable is the quick recognition marking consisting of the wide white band, a relic of combat operations over the MTO. The red individual aircraft letter 'M', as the spinner tips, place this aircraft within the services of 5. Staffel of II. Gruppe. Atypically, the fuselage crosses lack black borders. ZG 1, operating from airfields in Austria and Germany, took part in many engagements with American aircraft. These usually were from the 8th USAAF from England and from the 15th USAAF from Italy, and included the first major engagements between the USAAF and the Luftwaffe over Czech territory on February 22, 1944, in what became known as 'The BigWeek'.

Messerschmitt Bf 110G 5./ZG1 (S9+AN) W.Nr 6232 abandoned Monte Corvino Sep 1943 01

Photo's 01-03: Zerstorergeschwader 1 was formed and reformed several times in its history, the second formation being raised in Russia in January 1942 from elements of SKG210. In March or April 1943, II./ZG1 converted to the Bf 110G-1 and G-2 and arrived at Monte Corvino in June. This remained the Gruppe's base until August when it was withdrawn from Italy, leaving behind several aircraft which were later photographed by an advance party of the Royal Air Force's 324 Wing on 11 September 1943 which found a total of 21 Bf 110s on the airfield, some of which were G-2 trops. Known as the 'Wespen', or 'Wasp' Geschwader, the aircraft of ZG 1 invariably carried the unit's colourful stylised wasp decoration on the nose. The missing parts of the decoration may be seen on the gun access panels lying on the ground to the right of the photographs above and below. The machines shown here are W.Nr 6232, coded S9+AN with the letter 'A' in red - which was flown by the Staffelkapitn of 5./ZG1 - and S9+FM, W.Nr 6187, of 4./ZG1. Note that the nose panels on S9+AN have come from another aircraft, as shown by the mismatching of the wasp emblem. The Spitfires in the background belonged to 324 Wing.

Messerschmitt Bf 110G2 Zerstorer 5./ZG1 (S9+FN) Monte Covino, Italy - Summer 1943

One of the units to be withdrawn from the eastern front and activated in Italy in the spring of 1943 was ZG 1. Here, it operated first and foremost as a Jabo (fighter-bomber) unit. For this reason, the aircraft is pictured with bomb racks and dust filters. The yellow theatre markings from the eastern front were supplemented with a white MTO fuselage band that partially obscures the codes. Over the course of 1943, the unit's aircraft also acquired the very distinctive hornet emblem on the nose, associated with the Geschwader's name, 'Hornissen'. This aircraft belongs to the same Staffel as '2N+MN' from profile 'A', but from several months prior, accounting for several marking differences. It is noteworthy how the fuselage codes differed with II./ZG 1: while this aircraft carries 'S9' from Erp.Gr.210, profile 'A' uses '2N' that at different times denoted II./ZG 1 and III./ZG 76. For reasons of different timeframes, there is also a variation in the size of the first part of the codes.

Herbert Kutscha (1917-2003) served with II./JG 77 at the beginning of the war, but he was soon transferred to 5./ZG 1 equipped with Messerschmitt Bf 110s. During the Battle of France, he shot down a number of aircraft, including a Bf 109 of the air force of neutral Switzerland. Later, he also gained much success on the Eastern Front as a ground attack pilot, partially due to his II./ZG 1 evolving into II.SKG 210. Kutscha's II.Gruppe/SKG 210, under the command of Hptm. Rolf Kaldrack, was specialized in ground attack operations, specifically low level bombing. The Bf 110 was able to move at a faster speed over unfriendly territory than other bombers. Here is where the term "fast bombardment wing" (SKG =Schnellkampfgeschwader)* was coined. Kutscha was awarded the Knight's Cross after his 22nd victory. At that time there were 41 aircraft destroyed on the ground, 41 tanks, 15 locomotives, 11 anti-aircraft guns, and 157 transport vehicles added to his tally. In June, 1943, he received command of 15. Staffel IV./JG 3 "Udet", utilizing single engined fighters. In the summer of 1944, he took control of II./JG 3 in Normandy, and of II./JG 27 by the end of the year. From February, 1945, he commanded III./JG 1 on the Eastern Front. All in all, he flew over 900 sorties, gained 47 kills, six of which were four engined heavies, and 22 of his kills were with the Bf 110. * German Geschwader (squadron) was much bigger unit than RAF or USAF squadron, it was corresponding to USAF wing. Gruppe was equal to USAF Group, Staffel was similar unit as the USAF squadron.

Herbert Kutscha (*1917 + 2003) na zaèátku války sloužil u II./JG 77, ale brzy byl pøevelen k 5./ZG 1 vyzbrojené Messerschmitty Bf 110. Bìhem francouzského tažení sestøelil nìkolikstrojù vèetnì jednoho Bf 109 leteckých sil neutrálního Švýcarska. Pozdìji na východní frontì, kde se z jeho jednotky II./ZG 1 stala II./SKG 210, dosáhl velkých úspìchù i jako bitevníletec. Kutschova II. Gruppe SKG 210 pod velením Hptm. Rolfa Kaldracka se specializovala na bitevní útoky, respektive bombardovací útoky z malých výšek. Nad nepøátelským územím se pøitom Bf 110 pohybovaly vyšší rychlostí než jiné bombardéry. Odtud také pocházel název tohoto útvaru – "rychlá bombardovací eskadra" (SKG =Schnellkampfgeschwader). Kutscha byl po dosažení 22 vítìzství vyznamenán Rytíøským køížem. V té dobì bylo na jeho kontì navíc 41 letadel znièených na zemi, 41 tankù, 15 lokomotiv, 11 protiletadlových kanónù a 157 nákladních vozù. V èervnu 1943 se stal velitelem 15. Staffel IV./JG 3 "Udet" používající jednomotorové stíhaèky. V létì 1944 pøevzal velení II./JG 3 v Normandii a v závìru roku velel II./JG 27. Od února 1945 vedl III./JG 1 na východní frontì. Celkem absolvoval pøes 900 bojových letù, docílil 47 sestøelù, z toho 6 ètyømotorových bombardérù. Na Bf 110 získal 22 vítìzství.
