Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6 number 17, of JG 26 when the USAAF and RAF bombed by day and night Bf 109 units sent to protect war industries and production was increased.
In January 1943 about 200 Bf109G models were accepted by the Luftwaffe, later the number increased to 500 in March and over 700 in July. In order to defend the Fatherland units were stripped to return home and fly intercept missions against the Allied bomber fleets.

Bf 109G-6 flown by Hauptmann (Captain) Hans Dippel
of JG./26, who was a 19 victory ace, later killed in action in France, May 1944.

Up to the end of 1942 the air defense of the Third Reich was kept to minimum strength However, with increased bombing raids by the RAF at night and later by the USAAF forced the Germans to withdraw Bf 109 fighter groups to protect its war industries.
Production of Bf 109's increased but the Luftwaffe
found itself struggling from the Russian front to the Mediterranean.
