The first Bf-109G “Gustav” entered service in March 1942. New features were a pressurized
cockpit with three larger guns mounted on the nose and none on the wings but could be field
mounted. The Bf-109G could overheat causing oil leaks; starting a fire forcing the pilot to bail out.
The Gustav was produced in many variants including long-range fighters, recon fighters and
bomber destroyers. The Bf-109G-6 lacked a pressurized cockpit but was the most numerous
Bf-109 produced and the first to carry 13mm machine guns; equivalent to the American 50 caliber
Browning.


Hermann Graf was a WWII German Ace with 212 victories in 830 missions and the first pilot to
score 200 victories. In mid 1943 Hermann Goring selected Graf to form a special high-altitude
squadron to intercept Allied aircraft. The new Jagdgruppe 50 “Karaya Quartet” was equipped
with modified high-altitude Bf-109G-6/R2 armed with two 210mm Wgr21 unguided rockets, a
30mm canon, two 13mm machine guns and an engine injection system creating 1,800 bhp. Green
1 W.Nr 15919 is one of several Bf-109s Graf flew and it wore the red ‘tulip’ nose and white tail
with ‘kill’ markings and his Knight’s Cross award.
