NORTHERN KNIGHT PRINT BY ROBERT BAILEY
24" X 34"
This exciting combat scenario places us just off the northern coast of Norway during March, 1944. Aircraft are Me 109's and Russian Bostons. Luftwaffe ace Walter Schuck (206 confirmed aerial victories) and his wingman, maul a flight of Russian bombers which are attacking a German supply convoy. On March 17th, Schuck brought down SEVEN of these Boston bombers, and was awarded the Knight's Cross shortly afterwards. Combat over arctic waters was particularly hazardous. A pilot could only expect to live for five minutes after immersion in these arctic waters. Lieutnant Schuck was with JG-5, based at Petsamo, Finland. From this base he scored the majority of his long list of victories.
