Squads Sub-Forum to be Retired 05/17/2020As part of the ongoing forum re-organization and cleanup, we will be retiring the squads sub-forum. We will be removing access on 31 May 2020. The Squads forum is actually a separate stand-alone application that resides within the forum infrastructure. The current application is not compatible with the most recent version of the forum software. Additionally, development work on the application was stopped in 2019. For these reasons, combined with the relatively low usage, the decision was reached to retire the squad sub-forums. If you have any content, such as images, links, etc that you wish to preserve, please do so prior to 31 May.
We are one of the oldest LW squadrons of WWIIOL, and are proud to carry the name of JG 2 Richthofen. During campaign we only play LW as a group. Historically, JG2 Richthofen was one of the rare Luftwaffe units that campaigned in France from the first day of the Blitzkrieg to the end of the German Occupation. Having fought exclusively on the Western Front, JG2 was not an ace factory. It had, however, a great impact in the air war during the war, being credited with at least 2700 confirmed kills, most of them in the West.
This image, "Tough day," by James Dietz, symbolizes best the resilience of our squadron. It was been here in WWIIOL since its early days, and witnessed (and contributed) to its glory days. And even when the times were tough, we lifted, we never abandoned the hope that the skies will be blue again. Or even on a day to day, mission to mission basis, we have the same attitude. We will lift, even if the skies are full of EA, with only a handful of us to oppose them. !S to all -friends and foes- from JG2.
