This picture may be taken in march 1944 at DORPAT Airfield / Estonie. At that time I. group of Schlachtgeschwader 3 (SG3) was based there.
The name of the photographer may be DROEGE ( not Doege). Kriegsberichter DROEGE was from 7. March to 10. March with First SQN SG3. He was flying as backseater on 9. March two missions in the NARWA bridgehead together with his pilot FRITZ on board of the Ju 87D5 call sign BB. See the book "Fronteinsätze eines Stuka-Fliegers - Mittelmeer und Ostfront 1943-44" by Hans Peter Eisenbach HELIOS Verlag Germany, Page 102 Flight number 942 and 943.

To whom it concerns
I have checked the appropriate films of Kriegsberichter DOEGE in the Bundesarchiv in Koblenz. Now I can definitely confirm, that the Photo of the Ju 87 above was taken on march 9, 1944 at Dorpat airfield. The Ju 87D5 is the call sign "S7+AH". More pictures under Bundesarchiv "DOEGE" "1944". There you can also see the picture of a Ju 87D5 "S7+BB" which was flown by FRITZ. For more information see "Fronteinsätze eines Stukafliegers" Helios Verlag Germany.

The German AD500 carried 118 4kg bomblets did you know the Germans developed different types of anti-personnel bombs during the war.


The Russians had their version of cluster type bombs called RRAB-1,2 and 3 models these were
