Hi
Trying to track down where the ARR units assigned to the GAL were based during Barbarossa. I have had a look through "Bessarabia to Odessa" and found the LW bases but not the ARR ones.
All I really want to know is were the bases of Bacau and Roman shared between LW and ARR units?
It'd help with my mission building.
Thanks in advance.

I don't think there's an easily available source for this on the Internet. The only chance I see is to ask these questions in the message board of www.worldwar2.ro (http://www.worldwar2.ro) . Many people with good knowledge hang out there.

Known about Grupul 8 vanatoare (with Esc. 59 & 60 van) is that they began June 22 1941 at the airfield Focsani North and received orders to move to Ramnicul Sarat at 6:15 p.m. that day.
Grupul 5 bombardament (Esc 78, 79 & 80 bomb with He 111 H-3) was at Zilistea which they shared with III./KG 27 and II./KG 4.

BTW 4.10 will contain all the relevant romanian units (with correct designations). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
