• Le III./Zerstörergeschwader 26 – 1939/1944. NEUAUFLAGE!

    It may seem surprising in the context of an air unit history to detach a group from its squadron. However, the III./ZG 26, which started the Second World War on Bf 109, had a very independent career. Having received twin BF 110s during the Funny War, the unit was largely engaged in 1940 in the west and on England.

Africa. In 1943, after the fall of Tunisia and facing the numerical superiority of Allied aviation, the III./ZG 26 returned to Germany to be thrown into the bloody fighting of the Reichsverteidigung. The Bf 110 were decimated and the unit was dissolved in mid-44.
