World War II History of JG11

Jagdgeschwader 11 was formed on April 1, 1943 from two existing Gruppen. The Bf109s of I/JG1 became II/JG11 while the Fw190s of III/JG1 became I/JG11. A new Gruppen was formed from scratch and became III/JG11 and was assigned Bf109s. The allied bomber offensive was reaching a crescendo and JG11 was needed to bolster the defense of the Reich. The Gruppen were initially placed along the north German coast between Holland and Denmark.


The unit was to participate in several firsts in air combat. They were the first to use air to air bombs against the American bombers. They were also the first to use the 21 cm rockets carried under the wings of their planes. These were to be launched from outside the range of the defensive fire of the bombers. These both became a hindrance with the appearance of longer range escort fighters.


Along with other Jagdgeschwader’s JG11 participated in the defense of France after the Allied invasion of Operation Overlord.


On January 1, 1945 JG11 participated in Operation Bodenplatte, the New Years Day attack by the Luftwaffe against Allied airfields in Belgium and Holland. The attack was a massive low level mission by several Geschwader’s. JG11’s target was the airfield near Asch Belgium, designated Y-29 by the Allies. The field was defended by the 352nd Fighter Group and 366th Fighter Group. A Squadron of the 366th was already airborne and heading to attack German ground targets in the Bulge. Another Squadron, this one from the 352nd was idling on the runway as JG11 approached. The 352nd was able to get all 12 aircraft off the ground. A large dogfight occurred at low altitude over the base and surrounding terrain. JG11 suffered heavily in the attack, with the loss of 24 planes and 22 aircrew for a claim of 11 Allied aircraft brought down. This battle was the topic of an episode of Dogfights on the History Channel.


The Gruppen of the Jagdgeschwader were to serve on both the Western and Eastern fronts. On January 23, 1945 the Jagdgeschwader was redeployed to the Eastern Front. A large Russian offensive had begun 11 days earlier. From this time until their final surrender, JG11 was to score in excess of 350 kills.

The history of Uffz. Karl-Heinz Kabus serving with 3. Staffel JG 11 in the spring of 1945.


A small group of pilots, 20 in number, were assigned as a Berlin Defense Staffel in late April. They had 6 Fw-190s based at Tempelhof.


JG11 surrendered to the British at Leck Airfield on May 7, 1945.
