History[edit | edit source]
Built by Ago at Oschersleben, as part of the 0142291 - 0142520 block., 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, 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.
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.
