A schwarmpack of late Fw 190Ds from 2./JG 26
Jagdgeschwader 26, with its long and storied history, was one of the last active units of the Jagdwaffe to conduct operations before the end of the war, having utilized various marques of the Fw 190 for many years. As materials became scarce, the various gruppen and stafflen of the geschwader were forced to scrounge for paint, often resulting in some fairly interesting schemes.
This pack, containing four late-model D-9s, is based off of "Black 10", WNr 500618, which was painted yellow on the vertical stabilizer and rudder, except around the swastika. Camouflage was done in RLM 82/83 on the upper fuselage and 75/83 on the upper wings, with the RLM 75 circling to about halfway down the undersurface, the rest of which was left in bare metal. The lower fuselage was painted in RLM 84, with the ailerons in RLM 76. A II Gruppe vertical bar was hastily painted out, apparently as this aircraft was reassigned within JG 26.
The other skins in this pack, all of which bear the signature yellow tail and variations on the camouflage colors and patters of Black 10 include "Black 3", "Black 8", and "Black 15". All four skins come in three versions: fully-marked, swastika only, and blank. Original template by Jesters-Ink.
