CIP

The book " GERMAN/RUMANIAN NIGHT FIGHTERS" where did you buy it from ? what is the printing year ? can you repost the first photo posted as it doesnt work .....also can you scan the cover of the book.

It also says under one of the photos where two soldiers looks into the sky ..that the AMERICAN bombers bombed Zilistea while flying from Russia to Rumania...I knew that some joint US / Sviet B-25's Bombers under the Russian Naval Air Command were based in Crimea and used on the Crimea front in 1944 , I didnt know however that other US bombers were based elsewhere in Russia.....I would like to know the type and location of the bombers just in case you know .

Thanks

Hey Cip, the Lancaster was in fact a Halifax shot down at Corbii Mari.

This chart if translated from French to English says it shows all location of the German visual night signalling aids and status for night fighter activity and not German Radar locations....from German translated it also indicates the 12 BF-110 soled to ARR for the amount mentioned ....the circles are NAV compass roses and the legend indicates the night signalling status of each facility........it doesnt indicate about any Radar station location.

Also I am not aware nor there are any RAF reports that Halifaxes and Lancs were lost over Rumania....it could well be an RAF B-24...however if you have clear evidences from the crash site pointing out of a Halifax , let me know

Yes Alex you are right they are not radars but radio control centers who direct the german night fighters to the night intruders position ( or something like that). But also Wurzburg radars could be part from that complex sistems ( visual, audio, signalling, radio). I will check for more in that book.
