Facing the might of the Allied air armadas pounding the Reich almost daily from mid-1944, the young pilots of JG 4’s II. Gruppe -flying specially armed and armoured Fw 190s- committed themselves to destroying at least one bomber on every sortie, even pledging to bring them down by ramming if all else failed.
