Description: Messerschmitt Me 109E-3 Stab, JG53 Pilot: Major Hans-Jurgen von Cramon-Taubadel (Geschwader Kommodore) Thevile-Maupertus (Cherbourg-Ost), France, August 1940 This 109E-3 has an interesting story attached to the markings. Major von Cramon-Taubadel was married to a Jewish wife, a fact which came to the attention of Hermann Goering during the Battle of France. As a result he ordered that the whole of JG 53 must remove their famous Ace of Spades badge and paint a red band around the noses of their aircraft as a mark of shame. In the Autumn of 1940 von Cramon-Taubadel was removed as Geschwader Kommodore and Goering told them they could reinstate their "Pik-As" badge; this they did but at the same time, as a mark of protest, all the pilots of JG 53 had the Swastikas painted over on their aircraft. Thus it is easy to recognise JG 53 109's late in the Battle of Britain as they have no Swastikas on them. This profile shows Major von Cramon-Taubadel's aircraft with the red band marking when the Geschwader were operating from Cherbourg and the Channel Islands during the Battle of Britain. The basic camouflage is a splinter pattern of RLM70 Schwarzgr├╝n and RLM02 Grau over RLM65 Hellblau sides and underneath with RLM02 Grau mottling on the sides. The cross, although of the larger size, still has the thinner white edges. The usual oil, fuel, and first-aid kit markings are all present. The propeller spinner and Kommodore's markings are in black, the latter outlined white. Prop blades were RLM70. I would appreciate if you leave a comment and/or a rating after downloading this skin! Enjoy!!

only the III/JG53 overpainted the swastikas after Wilcke took command of it in august .

and at november the 20. 1940 official they were allowed to have the AceOf Spade again on their cowlings was the 500 airvictory of the JG53.
sure it helped that vonMaltzahn took over command from Traubadel at october the 10. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

To make the story more intresting Major Baron von Maltzahn was a quarterly jew and was protected by Adolf Galland. Von Maltzahn later achieved the oak leaves to the knight cross.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.
