Description

 

Hereis a Fiat G.91 (called "Gina" by its crews), used by the Luftwaffe as a Jagdbomber (Jabo) and Target-Tower for Anti-Aircraft-Gunner-Training. Later the FIATs were replaced by the Alpha Jet in the Jabo-role.

These jets were heavily used for Target-Simulation for the AA-Tank GEPARD etc. in Northern Germany near a little village named Todendorf, where all the AA-Live-Fire-Training took place.


Behind the jet is the target, which was let out about 2 km behind the FIAT and live fired at by the AA-crews...

The Flugdienst CONDOR was a kind of service for the Luftwaffe, which flew all these target-simulation-missions...
