Historically and currently, the Kampfgeschwader Commander is the highest level of command for the tactical application of lethal force and the lowest command level of strategic application of air power.
Kampfgeschwader Commanders are assigned sectors of operation to offer air power to the support ground element in contact or provide strategic effects as directed by higher authority. Kampfgeschwaders are mainly Bomber units, but will revert to the use of fighters if neccesary.
Officers of the 26th KG
I take liberty in commending you for your loyalty and duty. Our war fighting leadership is without measure.
During the last war fight, our unit training in the use of before take-off checks, pre- mission planning, actions on the objective and team tactics has increased our lethality and enhanced our overall survivability rate. Very Very Good...
Training guidance: We support the Heer Commanders with Aviation Close Fires. I challenge you now in a new task and purpose to train the elements we provide fires for.
