#2 of a trilogy commemorating the 80th. Anniversary of the Battle of Britain
On the 15th. of August 1940, the Luftwaffe mounted their largest attack on Britain to date, with over 2,000 sorties. The raiders appeared large and threatening on the RAF’s radar screens, but unseen were the sixteen Bf110s and nine Bf109Es of the Special Test Unit,
ERP 210 (Erprobungsgruppe 210). Their tactic was to fly so low as not to be seen by radar, and this day’s target was RAF Martlesham Heath in Sufffolk. Led by Bf110Ds with the blue and white markings of 1st. Staffel, the group also boasted 30mm cannon-armed Bf110Cs and bomb-carrying Bf109Es of 3rd. Staffel. The tranquility of East Anglian backwaters was shattered, but the real damage was done at Martlesham where the RAF had no time to react. ERP 210 served successfully throughout the Battle of Britain, but thankfully for the RAF, it remained a small part of Luftwaffe tactics.
