Hi
I have received photos of a data board concerning I.(Pz)/SG 9 from Phil Merten, a member of TO’CH. The board was found at Eggersdorf. Phil was interested in finding out more about the board and operations of this gruppe.

I believe that this board would date from a relatively short period in January 1945 when all of the group were together at Eggersdorf, where they were activated. I am not totally sure of the aircraft in use. I have a record of 1./SG 9 having Junkers Ju 87Gs in this early period, but certainly by the end of the war Fw190F were in use with all of the gruppe.

The title reads Einsatzbereitschaft am… this translates as ‘operational readiness at…'

The first column in titled einheit (unit) and then lists the units of this gruppe.

The second column reads flugzeuge (aircraft) and is subdivided by typ (type) and Anzahl (number).

I am not sure about the rest of the board…

Any comments on this gruppe and/or the board will be much appreciated by myself and Phil

Cheers
Ian

Ian,

Holm indicates that 1(Pz)./SG 9 formed with Fw 190Fs while the other two staffeln operated Ju 87Gs.

Griehl in "Junkers Ju 87 Stuka" (Airlife) agrees with that and goes further, indicating that the 190Fs used Panzerblitz rockets. He also suggests that 2 and 3 staffeln possessed a number of 190s, but that these were used as escorts to the Ju 87s or as Fighterbombers. (pages 300-301).

Thanks Andy,

I had seen several reports of I./SG 9 having Fw190F from Jan 1945. However Smith, Goss, et al in Schlachtflieger (Luftwaffe Colours) p.49 records an attack on Soviet armour by Schlact a/c including eight Ju 87 of 1.(Pz)/SG 9 on the 27th Feb 1945.

It would appear that all three staffeln had a mixture of Ju87 and Fw190F.

Ian
