Jagdgeschwader 1. Virtually Unified
For 15 years, this squadron has represented itself as II.Gruppe Jagdgeschwader 1 (II./JG 1) within all Second World War flight sims. This will not change! The II./JG1 name, borrowed from the historical unit, is fundamentally tied to who we are.
However, with the blessing of JG1.sk, our squadron is now going to also adopt the I.Gruppe Jagdgeshwader 1 (I./JG 1). Additionally, III./JG 1 squadron, heavily involved in IL_2: Battle of Stalingrad and IL-2: 1946, and commanded by III./JG1_Willy, has decided to merge into JG1 “Oesau.”
What this means is that, in terms of WW2 simming, JG1 is now a full geschwader, encompassing three full Gruppen: I./JG 1, II./JG 1, and III./JG 1 “Oesau.”
As a result, people should expect to see our JG1 pilots online with the I./JG1_, II./JG1_, and III./JG1_ prefix uniforms. This is especially true within IL-2: 1946, IL-2: Cliffs of Dover, IL-2: Battle of Stalingrad and DCS: World War II. We have also formed a GeschwaderStab (wing command) which will use the Stab/JG1_ prefix online.
