Profile 00: Bf 109F.4 'White 1' flown by Oblt. Wolfdieter Huy, Staffelkapitan of 7./JG77, July 1941 A number of units operating in the East seem to have preferred a dark green camouflage scheme in place of the 74/75/76 factory finish, a practice which appears to have been particularly favored by JG52 and JG77. This aircraft, W.Nr. 8334, has received just such a scheme and has been resprayed with Green 70, the lower fuselage sides being further darkened by exhaust deposits. The rudder decoration shown here is just one of several variations seen on aircraft flown by this pilot.

Photo 01: On 2 July, Oblt. Wolfdieter Huy, the Staffelkapitan of 7./JG77, claimed his sixth and seventh victories. Three days later, while based at lasi in Rumania, Huy was awarded the Ritterkreuz.

Photo 02: Huy's Ritterkreuz was awarded mainly for his exploits in May when, as a Jaboflieger during operations against Crete, he had carried out several successful attacks on shipping, as indicated by the silhouettes on the rudder of his aircraft. Huy's aircraft, a Bf 109F-4 coded 'White 1', WNr. 8334, remained in action until 7 June 1942 when, while on the strength of II./JG77, it was completely destroyed after another pilot baled out and the machine crashed.

Photo 01: These Bf 109Fs of III./JG77 were photographed in the Crimea during the early Summer of 1942, shortly before the Gruppe converted to the Bf-109G. Note the all-yellow cowling is unusual as, by mid-1942, most units had camouflaged the cowling top and sides leaving only the underside yellow as an identity marking.

On this aircraft, the tactical number '2' has been outlined in white, the yellow theatre markings are confined to the fuselage band only and three white victory bars were painted on its rudder.

Image 01: Messerschmitt 8f 109 F.4 flown by Oblt. Kurt Ubben, Kommandeur of III./JG77, September 1941 The camouflage finish on 'Black 13' evidently consisted of a heavy mottle of Green 70 sprayed over the original finish in such a way that the earlier 74/75 mottles on the fuselage showed through as darker areas. The finish was then further modified with lighter mottles of 02 and 74. Undersurfaces remained Light Blue 76 and yellow theatre markings were applied beneath the engine cowling, under the wingtips and around the fuselage. The latter band is unusual in being edged in red. The spinner was predominantly Green 70 with a red tip and the rudder is marked with 35 victory bars surmounted by a small representation of the Ritterkreuz complete with ribbon. The reason why the 20th victory bar, dated 25 July 1941, is in a different colour is not known.

Photo 02: Oblt. Ubben became very successful in Russia and by 25 July 1941 had already increased his score to 20 victories. He received the Ritterkreuz on 4 September with 28 victories and claimed his 36th victory, an I-16, on the day he became Kommandeur. In this photograph Ubben is standing on the right.

Ubben's first victory was a Dutch Fokker D-XXI fighter destroyed on 10 May 1940, and his second, an RAF Hurricane, on 19 April 1941.A11 the remaining victories were against Russian aircraft. Soon after the 39th victory bar had been added, Ubben's aircraft, still with the gust lock in place, was evidently captured by the Russians who photographed his rudder decoration.

Photo 01: This Bf 109F of Stab III./JG77 , photographed in the early Autumn of 1941, carried 30 victory bars on the rudder and, although the pilot has not been positively identified, it is believed that this is a reserve aircraft used by Oblt. Kurt Ubben.

WIA 4 April, 1942 during aerial combat, and the report states that he made a successful force landing at Bir-el-Arca Africa and the intact ac was captured and restored in the UK in 1991!

Kurt 'Kuddel' Ubben

Kurt 'Kuddel' Ubben was born on 18 November 1911 at Dorstadt in Harz. He joined the navy in 1931 undertaking his training on the sailing ship 'Gorch Foch'. In 1935, Ubben transferred to the Luftwaffe and, by 1938, was serving with the Küstenjagdstaffel Kiel. At the outbreak of World War 2, Oberfeldwebel Ubben was serving with 5./JGr 186. The unit was destined to be based aboard the German navy's aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin, at that time still under construction. He participated in air operations supporting the invasion of Poland in September 1939. He gained his first aerial success when he shot down a Dutch Fokker D XXI fighter over Holland on 10 May 1940. In June 1940, Ubben transferred with II./JGr 186 to Norway where the unit was based at Stavanger. On 5 July, II./JGr186 was absorbed into III./JG77 when it became obvious that the Graf Zeppelin would not be completed for some time. On 22 July, Ubben was appointed Staffelkapitän of 8./JG77.

By the end of 1940, 8./JG77 was stationed on the Channel front. The unit transferred to take part in the invasion of the Balkans in early April 1941. Ubben claimed an RAF Hurricane fighter shot down in the Lamia area of Greece on 19 April. However, Ubben's Bf-109 was badly damaged in the engagement necessitating a forced landing behind Allied lines. He was rescued by a Fieseler Fi 156 Storch flown by a colleague of his unit, which landed and flew him back to his base. Ubben also performed many ground attack missions and fighter-bomber attacks against Allied shipping around the coasts of Greece and Crete.On 22 May, Oberleutnant Ubben and Oberleutnant Wolf-Dietrich Huy (40 victories, RK-EL) attacked the Royal Navy's Force 'C' between the islands of Kythera and Antikythera. Both were successful in gaining hits on the British battleship 'Warspite'. He also claimed a British Motor Torpedo Boat sunk during this period. Ubben participated in the invasion of Russia in June 1941. He claimed his 20th and 21st victories on 25 July. He was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 4 September for 32 aerial victories, 26 aircraft destroyed on the ground and 15 tanks destroyed.

On 5 September 1941, Hauptmann Ubben was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of III./JG77. He achieved his 50th victory on 19 October.Ubben shot down four Russian aircraft on 9 December (58-61). He was awarded the Eichenlaub (Nr 80) on 12 March 1942 for 69 victories. When III./JG77 was transferred to North Africa, Ubben had 92 victories to his credit. He continued his success in the new theatre gaining his 100th and 101st victories on 14 January 1943. In October, Ubben led III./JG77 to Rumania where it was tasked with the aerial protection of the Ploesti oilfields from the increasing Allied bombing attacks. Major Ubben was appointed Kommodore of JG2 based in France on 10 March 1944, replacing Oberstleutnant Egon Mayer (102 victories, RK-S, killed in action 2 March 1944). On 27 April 1944, Ubben engaged USAAF fighters near Fere-en-Tardenois. In the ensuing combat, Ubben was shot down in Fw-190A-8/R2/R6 (W.Nr 680113). He baled out but his parachute failed to open either due to insufficient altitude or an improperly fastened harness.'Kuddel' Ubben was credited 111 victories in approximately 500 combat missions. He recorded 90 victories over the Eastern front. Included in his total is one four-engined bomber and seven P-38 twinengine fighters.
