    Awesome information concerning one of the deadliest USAAF missions ever flown, High Command expected a causality rate as high as 50%.

    Does anyone know what German fighter unit was the defending Staffel/Gruppe/etc during this and other Ploesti bombing raids? An example would be say 'JG-52', though that JG fought mostly against the Soviets.
