Hello friends. Please assist in writing ENGLISH text of history of the squadron which will be available to player in the first release of the New Career.
It should contains more than 2500 symbols (no upper limit), and it should describe WHOLE history of the squadron - from fundation till it's history end (amy be even till modern days, like for USAF 94th Aero Squadron for example).
Any additional facts and remarks are appreciated.

So please discuss and post your texts here for Jasta 35 German squadron

Jasta 35

Royal Bavarian Jagdstaffel 35, commonly abbreviated to Jasta 35, was a World War I "hunting group" (i.e., fighter squadron) of the Luftstreitkräfte, which was the forerunner to the Luftwaffe.

Jasta 35 would score 44 aerial victories during the Great War, at the expense of six killed in action, four killed in flying accidents, nine wounded in action, five injured in flying accidents, and two taken prisoner of war.

Royal Bavarian Jagdstaffel 35 was formed at the FEA 6 training center on 14 December 1916. It went operational by 1 March 1917. It scored its first victory on the same day it lost its first Staffelführer, 14 April 1917. After the death in action of its second CO, subsequent commanders were brought in from outside, Hanstein from Jasta 16 and both Fuchs and Stark from Jasta 77.

The new squadron apparently began with new Albatros D.IIIs. Later, it must have had at least one Albatros D.V, as Staffelführer Hanstein was flying one when he was killed.

In 1918, the unit upgraded to Fokker D.VIIs, some Pfalz D.XIIs, and some Roland D.Vas.

Jasta 35 entered its military service on the Armee-Abteilung B Sector in March 1917, and operated there until July. It then transitioned to support of 4th Armee. It stayed with 4th Armee until December; during this time, it became part of Otto Schmidt's Jagdgeschwader II along with Jasta 7, Jasta 29, and Jasta 33. In March 1918, Jasta 35 transferred into Jagdgruppe 8 under Eduard Ritter von Schleich, joining Jasta 23, Jasta 32, and Jasta 59; this meant it also transferred to support of 17th Armee. It remained in that support role until September 1918. When Jasta 59 moved out of JG 8 and Jasta 34 moved in, the new Royal Bavarian Jagdgeschwader IV was established; Jasta 35 ended its war with this new unit.

The squadron had three notable aces serve with it. Rudolf Stark was a winner of the Iron Cross; Ludwig Hanstein won the Royal House Order of Hohenzollern. Fritz Anders also won the Iron Cross.

The squadron disbanded ten days after war's end, on 21 November 1918, at FEA 1 at Schleissheim, Austria.

Jagdstaffel 35 was a Bavarian fighter squadron formed at the Flieger Ersatz Abteilung 6 training centre in Großenhain on December 14, 1916. It mobilized on January 7, 1917 and was in action by the 1st of March, 1917. Its first victory, scored on the 14th of April, 1917, occurred on the same day it lost its first Staffelführer. After the death in action of second subsequent commanding officer, subsequent commanders were brought in from outside the unit. This included Ludwig Hanstein from Jasta 16 and both Otto Fuchs and Rudolf Stark from Jasta 77.

Jasta 35’s initial operations were in support of the Armee-Abteilung B Sector, where it operated until July 1917. It subsequently was transferred to support 4th Armee, during which time it was a part of Otto Schmidt's Jagdgeschwader II (along with Jasta 7, Jasta 29, and Jasta 33). The unit would support 4th Armee until December 1917.

In March 1918, in support of 17th Armee, Jasta 35 became a part of Eduard Ritter von Schleich's Jagdgruppe 8, joining Jasta 23, Jasta 32, and Jasta 59. It would remain in this role until September 1918. With Jasta 59 transferring out of JG 8 and Jasta 34 taking its place, the new Royal Bavarian Jagdgeschwader IV was established. Jasta 35 thus ended the war with this new unit.

At the beginning of its operations, the unit was equipped with the Albatros D.III. It is assumed the unit later was equipped with at least on D.V, as Staffelführer Hanstein was flying one when he was killed. The unit upgraded to Fokker D.VIIs, Pfalz D.XIIs, and Roland D.Vas in 1918.

By war’s end, Jasta 35 had scored 42 victories at a cost of 6 killed in action, 4 killed in flying accidents, 9 wounded in action, 4 injured in flying accidents, and 2 taken as prisoners of war. Three notable aces, including the aforementioned Ludwig Hanstein (awarded the Iron Cross) and Otto Fuchs (awarded the Royal House Order of Hohenzollern), and Fritz Anders (awarded the Iron Cross), served with the unit. The squadron was disbanded ten days after the war’s end on November 21, 1918, at Flieger Ersatz Abteilung 1 at Schleissheim, Austria.
Enjoy the game for what it is, not what you would like it to be.
