The third title of our "Luftwaffe over Czech territory 1945" is dealing with an attempt of Luftwaffe to significantly increase number of jet fighters by retraining bomberpilots for fighter tasks. The IX.Fliegerkorps(J) was based under Dietrich Peltz command and several KG units were transformed into KG(J), but only KG(J) 54 reached regular operational status and was sent into action. It was transfered to Prague in April 1945 and together with JG 7 and fragments of KG(J) 6 saw final battles over Bohemia, Germany and at Prague.
Despite of KG(J) 54 and KG(J) 6 the KG 51 was regular bomber unit which flew
