“For four long years, we officers did our duty on the ground, at sea and in the air, and risked our lives for our Fatherland. Now we come home and what do some people do to us? They spit on us ans want o take our honor away from us, And I will tell you this: The real (German) people are not responsible for this (conduct). Each and every one of them was a comrade, irrespective of social standing, four long, difficult, years of war. - Hermann Göring November 19, 1918
[Göring had a strong pagan streak, a touch of the arena, though perhaps, like many who are libidinous-minded.]
Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-2
The G series, or “Gustav”, was introduced in mid-1942. Its initial variants (G-1 through G-4) differed only in minor details from the Bf 109F, most notably in the more powerful 1475 PS (1,455 HP) DB 605 engine. Odd numbered variants were built as high-altitude fighters with a pressurized cockpit and GM-1 boost, while even numbered variants were non-pressurized, air superiority fighters and fighter-bombers. Long-range photo-reconnaissance variants also existed.
