I took off from Tarrougen base as No2 today, some of the flight was transferring to Libau, but myself with Redcoat and Madjek were going to Schaulen attacking any armour we could find there.
I headed North avoiding Kelmen town area as reports of IL2 attacking near there over the last week were coming in regularly, as I made a turn to 90' in grid sector K-12 and briefly spotted 3 aircraft low heading approx 180' to Kelmen.
After arriving over Schaulen town I made a low pass to observe where the armour was, Redcoat advised he had a visual and was making a bomb run but soonb reported he was aborting due to wrong AOA, this gave myself the opportunity to attack next and I dove in between the buildings bombing 1 tank and destroying the surrounding buildings, Redcoat resumed his attack on the remaining 2 tanks but failed to pull up in time, the Madjek made his run and did the same, I lost 2 good wingmen and crews today and it might have been the extra fuel we took hadnt been calculated correctly. I made 2 more runs without success, due to the difficulty of the target I decided to hit the airfield with some good results. With all bombs away I swept around to the North and headed to Frauenburgh airfield, where to the relief of my crew we made a good landing, as they were worried after seeing the rest of the flight "go in".

Mission Debriefing: I took off as part of a 4 plane flight of JU88's. Diesel was lead, Fishey winged for him, I was 3rd and ai was my wing. Our target was tanks in W-22. We flew E on a 95 hdg, eventuall going to a 85 or so. As we approache U-21-2 (maulta-?) we were jumped by approx 5-6 Laggs. We were receiving fire from the airdrome in the area. Diesel was low looking for targets. I believe Fishey went after the dromes AAA, i told my ai wingman to engage AAA. 109's (Brubaker and without and ??) arrived on scene to help with the fighters, i took this opurtunity to go to primary target area. Upon getting to target area W-22, I saw 4 tanks headed south on the road out of town. I attempted to drop my 250kg's on it and missed long. I called in the contact and proceeded N to town. On the the north side of town i found approx 12+ tanks sitting on road. I called in the sighting and Fishey and diesel showed up. Fishey made his first run and took out several tanks. I made a run and dropped my 50 kg's on the tank infestation and pulled up. Fishey then went in but my delay was long and he was fragged by my bombs. Diesel made a run on the tanks and i made another run. Diesel needed to rtb because of flak damage and turned W and pickeled of rest of bombload. I headed for the area of the tanks to the south and dropped my last 4 50's on them cross ing bridge S of town. I damaged the bridge, didn't hit the tanks. Then i turned to wing up with Diesel. I took him to NML and then went ahead to get direction of Drome runway. Diesel lost an engine and attemted to land, crashed on landing. Then i landed and parked near JU52's.
End of mission..Joining Alpha at the bar to have a drink for lost pilots and get a lil buzz on while they scrape up Diesel....

Took off in the #3 slot with Redcoat and Alpha. Or mission today was to secure the airfield at Schaulen. We took off from Tauroggen and formed up on Alpha. Alpha took us out on a heading of approximately 0’. We flew this heading on a slow climb of about 300m per minute. After reaching 2000m we leveled out and took a heading of 68’ towards Schaulen and then went straight east on a 90’ heading towards the center of Schaulen. Upon entering the town, Redcoat spotted targets in the town and requested permission to attack. Redcoat made a pass and aborted before coming back around on another pass. On his second pass my beobachter saw him go in. On hearing the news of one of our own go in, we became very quiet. Soon the quiet turned to anger and I brought my crate around and continued along with Alpha, who was now turning in to make an attack. Alpha went in and hit a tank before I set up on my run to attack the remaining tanks. Alpha came across the radio reminding me stay higher than normal because of the buildings. I gave him the affirmative and went in. I made an attack on the rear of the tanks in an east to west direction. I wanted enough speed to pull up after my drop, so I kept my throttle near 85%. I went in and had the target lined up, pulled the release for my bombs and then tried to pull up. I was far to low, and maybe fast, and went straigt into the penthouse of the 3 story building ahead of me! I Died instantly and I am now an permanent fixture on a wall in Shaulen!
