It looks like Fw 190 carries the paintjob and squad markings of JG1. JG1, AFAIK, never participated in Dieppe airbattles.

Other than that, Dieppe air battles were probably the highlight of Fw 190 superiority over British fighters. Maybe it is the wrong plane damaged http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Yes it did. But it was flying Bf-109-G1s AFAIK.

They provided high cover for the FW190 down below.

I have recently bought a book named "operation jubilee" with very similar picture on the front cover. In the same book they also claim that during this operation spitfires didnt have those white stripes painted on their noses. They say that these stripes were painted for some previous operation, that had to be canceled because of bad weather and so the stripes were removed. By this they also admit that the bookcover is wrong, but they say that they didnt have time to change it.

Come on - even while getting completely pwned, a Spitfire must have managed to shoot down one FW190 during that period http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Jura, you are rapidly establishing quite an enviable reputation through the quality of your work, my friend!

You have excellent attention to detail, and your work is of professional quality.

What software are you using to enhance your work, if you don't mind too terribly?
