Found a very rare historically (1942) document here:

www.laubstein.de/seite3.htm (http://www.laubstein.de/seite3.htm)

It's an authentic drill card holding basic flying instructions for 190 pilots. Used by the pilots as a pocket check list how to handle the plane.

The Shooting guide (blue cover) there is also very interesting. It was written by Adolf Galland.

Nice stuff!

I wish I could read German.

AT least now I know why some guys shout 'HORRIDO!' over the chat when they get a kill http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

there is a translation of the gunnery guide here

http://home.austin.rr.com/jg13/fw190gunnery/Horrido.doc

although if huninmunin could check this and translate the other I think he would find many here grateful

Minor correction. The shooting guide was made (inlcuding the pictures!) by Oberst Hannes Trautloft, long-time Kommodore of JG54. Galland simply accepted it as official training document http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Ah, you don't know the German WW2 operational radio brevity codes? Check this:

The translation of the gunnery table is correct.

Wow, forgot that I still had the "Schiessfibel" up on link:

http://home.austin.rr.com/jg13/fw190gunnery/Horrido.doc

Glad folks are still using it. Guess I'll keep it up. Couple notes -

1) After babelfishing myself silly (can't read German), found an english translation in text only (no pictures).

2) Cleaned up an orginal (german) version of the graphics and pasted them into the word document.

If anyone finds anything amiss in Horrido-1.doc please PM me and I'll correct the current version.

For the longest time, I thought that Galland was the author. About a year ago, I obtained a copy of "Luftwaffe Fighter Ace" by Norbert Hannig, which presents Hannes Trautloft (Norberts old Komodore in JG54) as the author of both the artwork and original document.

I really wish I could read German. But then I wish I could read about every language that I can't at one time or the other. Life's too short.
