Bf 109 G-5 flown by Major Hermann Graf, JG 50, September 1943.
Model by Floyd S. Werner, Jr., who kindly submitted the photos. This aircraft is armed with a pair of detachable WGr 21s (Werfergranate 21), the first onboard rocket projectile in service by the Luftwaffe. They were first deployed--against U.S. heavy bombers--on 17 August 1943, and Graf's JG 50 was one of the first units to use this new weapon.
