History[edit | edit source]

Built by Ago at Oschersleben, as part of the 0142291 - 0142520 block.[2], and originaly operated by 2./J.G. 54 as Black 2 +, this aircraft was captured by Soviet forces on 16 January 1943, South East of Schlüsselburg,[3] when Uffz. Helmut Brandt carried out a forced landing on the ice of Lake Ladoga. The aircraft was later repaired and tested by Soviet pilot U. Antipov, after being totally repainted with Soviet markings.[1]

It's subsequent fate is unconfirmed, but the fact that it isn't listed among surviving examples means it was likely scrapped after the war.[4]
