I'm considering creating a campaign for the Bf109-G6 in Finnish service in summer 1944, including possibly some d/f's against the Luftwaffe.

What bombers and gattack a/c would the Finnish Air Force have used at that stage of the war?

Does anyone have info re squadron and regiment organization?

AFAIK there were no fights between finns and germans in the air after september 1944

Cheers! I'll use the Ju-88's and there's the Gefechtsverband Kuhlmey Stukas as well. Looks like I'm all set.

Someone posted a link to a chart of all LW units thru the war a while back. Anyone still have the link? I should check what JG54 was flying at the time as well.

I don't think Kuhlmey participated War of Lapland, at least not on the Finnish side that is http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
