In 1943 the Luftwaffe established a Jabo (fighter-bomber) unit within JG 5. Designated 14.(J)/JG 5 it was formed at Petsamo in mid-February 1943, using elements from 11./JG 5. This unit was equipped exclusively with the Fw 190A-2 and A-3 that were modified for the Jabo-role. The unit commander was Hptm. Friedrich-Wilhelm Strakeljahn, popularly known as "Straks". The task of this unit was to attack enemy ships with bombs and do as much damage as they could. In light of their small numbers they did remarkably well.
Uffz Kurt Wendler was born on September 22, 1920 in Röhrsdorf, Germany. He was shot down by a Soviet AA northeast of Petsamo, Finland on April 13, 1943 and did not survive.
