THIS IS A NEW HISTORICALLY ACCURATE SKIN FOR THE GERMAN BF 109e PLANE
TURNING IT INTO A SWISS BF 109 G-6

---HISTORICAL SUMMARY---

The Swiss Airforce had been flying Me 109 Ds and Es since late 1938/early 1939. It was now spring 1944 and these 109s were obsolete when compared to the latest designs of Allied, German or Italian origin. The Swiss purchasing commission tried to acquire British Spitfire Mk. IXs or Typhoon IBs but these attempts amounted to nothing. 

The Germans were utterly reluctant to negotiate sales of their latest 109 G model, after Swiss pilots had 'dared' to shoot down numerous Luftwaffe aircraft intruding their neutral airspace. 

How the Swiss managed in the end to coax the Germans into selling them twelve brand new 109 G-6s is a rather remarkable story. 

On 28 April 1944 the pilot of a German Me 110 G-4 nightfighter of NJG 5 (C9+EN) landed in Duebendorf/ Switzerland after having been caught and tracked by anti-aircraft searchlights. 

The aircraft was undamaged and equipped with the latest and highly classified
FuG 220 'Lichtenstein' SN-2 radar. The Germans feared Allied intelligence operations and demanded the immediate return of this aircraft. The Swiss refused, which brought them to the edge of a military confrontation with the 'Third Reich'. 

In the end the two countries agreed on a secret deal: The Swiss Army would blow up the Me 110 under German supervision on 18 May 1944 and Messerschmitt would sell twelve brand new Me 109 G-6 to the Swiss immediately after. 

The Messerschmitt fighters were as secretly as possible delivered by German pilots (who had to wear civilian clothes), immediately repainted in Swiss markings and coded J-701 to J-712. 

The "J-711" is one of the twelve aircrafts.

All Flugwaffe aeroplanes were hurriedly marked with red/white neutrality stripes, oversized national 
insignias and white cowlings in September 1944 after a Swiss Bf 109 E had been mistakenly shot down 
by 339th FG Mustangs. The Swiss pilot was killed in that incident, his plane, like all Swiss 
Bf 109 E-models, totally lacking armour protection.
