4th Fighter Group - Dedicated FE Escort Group
« on: March 18, 2020, 07:27:04 PM »



Alright Fellas, this is it!

Our big friends are going to need some effective dedicated escorts to get them to target and back. If you are interested in flying with the same group for Fortress Europe events join up with the 4th. This is an FE only unit. We'll only assemble in the SEA for FE events. Glad to have you guys on if you decide to fly. You can stay in your main arena squads, no need to jump ship.

If you're interested, just post in this thread and we'll see yah on event nights. Simple as that.


Fighter Group History

The 4th Fighter Group was activated on 12 September 1942. Based in Debden, England, it was made up of the three Eagle Squadrons of the Royal Air Force (No. 71, No. 121, and No. 133). As they were transferred from the Royal Air Force to the United States Army Air Force, in the Eighth Air Force they became designated as the 334th, 335th, and 336th Squadrons.

They flew their first combat mission under American colors on 2 October 1942, still flying British Spitfires. Upon receipt of an adequate number of P-47 Thunderbolts and crews skilled in their maintenance, the group converted to P-47s in March 1943. In February 1944 the group switched to P-51 Mustangs, which they continued to fly until the end of the war in Europe. They flew their last combat mission on 25 April 1945. They had become the top-scoring Allied Fighter Group in the war, having destroyed 1016 enemy aircraft for a loss of 241 of their own planes.

<S> Little friends!
There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!
