FW190d9 Red3 JV44 Wuerger Staffel

Hptm. Waldemar Wübke Fw 190D-9 'Rot 3' Im Auftrage der Reichsbahn

(By order of the State Railway)*

*A sarcastic reference to fighters beings used as fighter bombers earlier in the war..


Red 3 was one of the four or five Doras known to have been assigned to the Airfield Defence Staffel of Generalleutnant Adolph Galland's Jagdverband 44. The intended role of this small unit was to defend the airspace above JV 44's operational base during the take-off and landing of the Me 262 jets, when they were most vulnerable to Allied fighter attack. The extensive deployment of flak units around the airfield and its approaches necessitated the painting of the D-9s' undersides in a dark color (usually agreed to be red) with narrow white longitudinal stripes, such that they not be mistaken for Allied aircraft which regularly prowled the airfields.
