Information by Hannu Valtonen:' Luftwaffen pohjoinen selusta' 'Lapin lentokoneenhylyt' 'Lufwaffe Kuvasto/ Pictoral. http://www.virtualpilots.fi/feature/articles/messerschmitt-phd/  Some cold facts about BF-109. Some notes. Yellow Wingtips are painted mostly on field. On F and G models. Yellow is painted on topsides too. Perhaps some E models are painted on same way. Yellow appears sometimes wery dark due to the orthochcromatic film...And secondly i believe that the ' tropical camo' with overpaintings is actually Erla factorys RLM 74 75 76 coloured splinter sheme..Perhaps the tropical colours has been in use allso in many cases... but was it in this way on JG5 in Lappland..?

Auch diese Maschine von Oberfeldwebel Muller zeigte ein sehr interessantes Tarnmuster in RLM 70/75/79/78, sowie die an den Flugelvorderseiten erkennbaren zwei Schusskameras. Auf der rechten Seite ist das personliche Emblem von Rudolf Muller, eine Katze zu erkennen. Zu sehen auch seine zum Zeitpunkt der Aufnahmen 50 Luftsiege auf dem Leitwerk und die wei?en Flugelspitzen zusammen mit der hellen gelben, etwas breiteren '3', die auf den sehr guten Fotografien der Maschine zu erkennen sind. Das exakte Schema stammt von Kjetil Akra, dessen Vorlage ich an meine Farbgebung und mein Template anpasste!

Heinrich Ehrler

Heinrich Ehrler was born on 14 September 1917 at Oberbalbach in Nordbaden. He joined the army in 1935 and served with a flak unit in the Spanish Civil War. In 1940 he began flying training. On completion of his training he was posted to 4./JG77 operating from bases in Norway. He gained his first victory in May 1940 shooting down a RAF Blenheim bomber. 4./JG77 was redesignated 4./JG5 on 1 February 1941.

Ehrler recorded his second victory on 19 February 1942 and was now operating over the Northern front from bases in Finland and northern Norway. He was to score a total of 11 victories with the unit before he was promoted to Staffelkapitan of 6./JG5 on 22 August. Between January and September 1942, Ehrler recorded 54 victories. Leutnant Ehrler was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 4 September for 64 victories. On Saturday, 27 March 1943, Ehrler, in short order, downed five Russian Kittyhawks and Airacobras in aerial combat. While attempting to engage another Russian fighter his aircraft was hit by a 20mm cannon shell forcing his disengagement from the battle. He returned safely to base with slight wounds. On 1 June, he was named Gruppenkommandeur of II./JG5. On 6 June, he claimed four Russian flown Hurricanes to record his 96th through 99th victories. He gained his 100th victory the next day.

After recording his 112th victory on 2 August, he was awarded the Eichenlaub (Nr 265). He shot down eight enemy aircraft on 17 March 1944 to record his 124th to 131st victories. He bettered this effort on 25 May 1944 downing nine to record his 147th to 155th victories. On 1 August 1944 he was promoted to Kommodore of JG5.

On 12 November 1944 a message reporting incoming British bombers reached the 27 year old Geschwaderkommodore of JG5. Ehrler, with his score at 199 victories, scrambled to intercept the Lancasters of 9 and 617 Squadrons at the head of a Gruppe of Bf 109s. The fighters were too late. The British Lancasters sank the battleship Tirpitz north of Tromso with the loss of a thousand sailors.

Ehrler was called to account for this disaster and at his court martial was accused of flying to get his 200th victory, instead of guiding his fighters from ground control. Ehrler was sentenced to three years Festungshaft, a more honourable punishment than imprisonment. Ehrler had been nominated for the Schwerten prior to the battleship disaster. The award was never made. He was stripped of his command.

However, he was able to record his 200th victory on 20 November 1944. Ehrler joined JG7 on 27 February 1945. His comrades knew that the old fire had been burned out of the gifted Ehrler. On 4 April 1945, he shot down two B-17s. Ehrler then reported he had run out of ammunition and rammed a third.

Erhler did not return from the mission, and his body was found the next day at Schaarlippe near Berlin. Heinrich Ehrler achieved 208 victories, of which about 10 were recorded over the Western front. Included in his score are eight victories flying the Me 262.

Rudolf Müller

Oberfeldwebel Rudolf 'Rudi' Muller

Rudolf 'Rudi' Muller was born on 21 November 1920 at Frankfurt am Main. He joined the army and served with the Signal Corps. He transferred to the Luftwaffe in 1940 and underwent pilot training. In August 1941, Muller was transferred from Erganzungsgruppe/JG77, based in Rumania, to 1./JG77 based in northern Norway. On 12 September, he claimed his first victory when he shot down a Russian I-16 fighter. In March 1942, 1./JG77 was redesignated 6./JG5. On 23 April, he shot down five Russian Hurricane fighters to record his 11th through 15th victories. Muller was to be particularly successful against Hurricane fighters supplied to the Russians under lend-lease by Britain. He recorded 15 victories in April, of which 12 were Hurricanes. In May, Muller claimed 13 victories, including 12 Hurricanes, to raise his victory total to 38. Some sources indicate that it was Muller who shot down and killed the Russian ace Podpolkovnik Boris Safanov (15 +14 shared victories) over the Allied supply convoy PQ-16 on 30 May.

He recorded his 40th victory on 17 June when he shot down one of two Hurricane fighters he claimed that day. Feldwebel Muller was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 19 June, by which time his victory total had reached 46. He was then granted a short leave. On his return he claimed 16 victories in August, including his 50th on 4 August, yet another Hurricane, and his 60th on 25 August. Muller's most successful month was September, when he recorded 18 victories, including seven enemy aircraft shot down on 27 September (75-81). He shot down 6./JG5's 500th victory on 13 March for his 92nd, and last, victory. On 19 April 1943, Muller was obliged to make a forced-landing in his Bf-109 G-2/R6 (W.Nr. 14810) 'Yellow 3' on the frozen Lake Bolschoje after aerial combat with 30-40 enemy aircraft over Murmansk. It is thought Muller was shot down by Russian ace Mladshii Leitenant Nikolai Bokii (14 +1 shared victories) of 2nd GuIAP, VVS.

He was captured some hours later by a Russian ski patrol. He is said to have been seen in a prison at Murmansk in 1947 but was never repatriated to Russia. Another source indicates that Muller was shot trying to escape from a Russian prison camp in October or November 1943.

'Rudi' Muller was credited with 92 victories. All his victories were recorded over the Eastern front and included at least 35 Hurricane fighters.
