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.
