Teufelskette by itifonhom Teufelskette by itifonhom
The "Teufelskette" or better known as the "Nowotny Schwarm" was the name of the most famous Luftwaffe team of the Eastern Front which included four pilots/friends, the famous Walter Nowotny and his katschmarek (wingman) Karl "Quax" Schnoerrer, Anton "Toni" Doebele and Rudolf "Rudi" Rademacher. The four of them formed a team in February 1943 while flying for 1./JG 54 "Gruenherz", the famous "Greenhearts", while based at Krasnogvardeisk. The "Schwarm" will eventually come to an end on 11th November 43 with the death of Doebele and the serious injury of Schnoerrer a little later. Nevertheless, the little group was credited with 524 combined kills during the course of the war, making them the most successful team in the Luftwaffe! In this image we see only the two of the group, Nowotny and his wingman Schnoerrer in their "White 9 and 10" FW190As as they should look around early March 1943.
The FW190A model comes from Touchwood, textures from me, as is the background.
P.S. Decided to change the image to a vertical format, I think it works much better that way, if you want to use this as a wallpaper or simply you like it the other way, feel free to turn it horizontal again!!

I hate to state the obvious, but your pictures are amazing. The fact there is a history behind the pictures make them even more interesting.

   For requests, please use the PM service. A request has nothing to do with the above image, so it's not a real comment.
