My vote is Hans-Ulrich Rudel. Here's what he did, in his trusty Stuka:

* 2,530 combat missions

Destroyed:

* 518+ Tanks
* 700 Trucks
* 150+ Flak and Artillery positions
* 9 Fighter/Ground Attack Aircraft
* Hundreds of bridges, railway lines, bunkers, etc.
* Battleship October Revolution , Cruiser Marat and 70 landing craft

Losses:

* Shot down 32 times.
* Innumerable aircraft brought back to base that were later written off, due to heavy combat damage.
* Wounded on many occasions, including the partial amputation of his right leg in the Spring of 45, after which he continued to fly with a prosthetic limb.

(500+ tanks is enough to equip an entire Soviet Tank Army)

It's truly impressive! He kept flying right till the end, even after loosing his leg. However, he didn't destroy those 9 aircraft in his "trusty Stuka" but in a Fw 190F he flew later in the war!

Hans-Ulrich Rudel is a liar. It's totaly over-claimed.
Over claiming was standerd luftwaffte propaganda practice.

Yeah, you're right. He actually never even flew in the war. His entire combat record and military career were made up.

Boy, he had us going!

Copperhead, you have been doing this for months now. It's getting very old. Do you think you could stop with the mindless trolling for a bit?

i'm not trolling. justb stating personal opinion.
it was in fact common practice to overclaim by ALL air forces of WWII. but the Germans had the market cornered.
I am intitled to my opinion that this person (Mr. Rudel)
was in fact a liar. & unless MR. Rudel is a member of this forum i am free to state that opinion with out it being an attack on another forum member.

No more than that of issy, broadlammer, Huck, or any of the LW fan boys hatred of the US military. So what your saying
tenmmike is that they can spout their anti US garbage....with out being punished...but if i for instance attack one of thier dead hero's who was in fact a member of the Nazi Party & an enemy of my nation & who supported the nazi cause by going top war for that same cause....then i'm the BAD GUY right?

Once again i fail to see how i offended any one bay calling a dead nazi pilot a liar.

Who are going to believe, Rudel, one of the most decorated soldiers of all-time, or Copperhead, a noteworthy...ummm...errr...video gamer (with a long history of being angered by German military successes)? Please.

Come one, Copperhead, this is getting lame. Really. If you intend to make a clown of yourself, carry on but not here.
Or, actually, better stay here. At least you make some guys have a good ration of healthy laugh.

In before the Closedown. I will see you next after one year. Lets hope that some people *points at the shiny metal scull of a super-nationalistic, over-biased american virual simmer* will be more mature./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Fair enough, you are entitled to whatever opinion you want /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

However, you will get your opinions challenged /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

So, care to let us into why you believe overclaiming was standard Luftwaffe practice?

Is it only the ardent Nazis (whom Rudel is indeed an excellent example) that overclaimed, or are all of the pilots equally guilty? Did Galland lie about his claims? what about Marseille? was Steinhoff prone to telling a porky or two?

There's not too much to brag about with Rudel. My vote goes to the crew of the Enola Gay.

In only one mission: 200,000 killed, thousands of buildings and vehicles destroyed.

The crew was not shot down either.
