Fw 190 A "black 4" from III. / KG (J) 27


The KG (J) units -  Kampfgeschwader re-mustered on fighters  and including KG (J) 6, 54 and 27 -  always capture the attention of enthusiasts. These images appear to show a late-variant 'Anton' - coded 'black 4+I' - with the green/white checker fuselage band (or Karoband) from III./ KG (J) 27. Fw 190 A-9 "white 2" (W.Nr. 206 000) is already known.  Of the known KG (J) 27 loss reports the Anton is not mentioned although the Dora-9 is..
