Default Luftwaffe 39-45

This site, which covers, Luftwaffe organization, aces, planes, markings, ranks, uniforms, etc., is in Portuguese, so I will have to rely heavily on Altavista. It is, however, a very good site and well worth the look. The site address is:

http://www.luftwaffe3945.hpg.ig.com.br/

This brings you to the introduction:

"During the last months of the World War II, the superiority numerical of the Allies evident that became so, only 8ª Air Force possuía North American about 1,500 huntings more than all the Luftwaffe. Moreover, the USAAF still counted on 9ª and 15ª Air Force ready to enter in operation at any time, if necessary! This site is dedicated to the memory of all the pilots of the Luftwaffe that they had fought until the end in defense of its Native land, exactly knowing that one was about a lost cause."

Clicking on the Brandenburg Gate icon, brings you to the index page. Here are the different sections:

Organization - Structure of Command

Oberkommando der Luftwaffe (OKL) - Includes table of directorates and a visual hierarchy of the positions and its Standards.
Luftflotte - Includes table of Luftflotten for 1939, 1942, 1944, and 1945.
Luftgau (Administrative)
Fliegerdivision, Fliegerführer
Geschwader (Tactician) - Gives tables of group and aircraft strengths.
Gruppe
Staffel
Schwarm
Rotte
Kette

By selecting a particular aircraft manufacturer from the left hand column, you come to a table with a small profile and basic information for each of the types listed.

Medals

This section appears to deal more with photos and a discussion of the history of various medals, rather than generally the recipients.

Hierarchy of the Ranks

A short table of shoulder board colors is given. This is followed by a table comparing equivalent ranks among Luftwaffe, RAF, USAAF, and Brazilian Air Force. Within the Wehrmacht, a table is given comparing ranks among the various services. Shoulder board and lapel rank identification is given in the next table. Next is given a table showing the hierarchy of the units and the ranks of the commanders.

Glossary - Some terms used in the Luftwaffe

Extensive listing. Too bad it doesn't give the results in English.

Militaria - Color photos with descriptions of various Luftwaffe uniforms and clothing.

Songs of the Luftwaffe - 5 songs are available

Default The "Luftwaffe 39-45" website

Have found this site an invaluable research tool for my work on the Jagdflieger, however it seems to have fallen off the web - having tried all the links you've provided - anyone have any up to date info where it has gone, or why it's been taken offline?

cheers
