Enemy Elite Friday: Günther Lützow (Prussia)

"Lützow was a German Luftwaffe aviator and fighter ace credited with 110 enemy aircraft shot down in over 300 combat missions.  Apart from five victories during the Spanish Civil War, most of his claimed victories were over the Eastern Front in World War II.  He also claimed 20 victories over the Western Front, including two victories—one of which was a four-engined bomber—flying the Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter."  He is know to be one of the officers in the Fighter Pilots' Revolt on the handling of the Luftwaffe by Goring himself.  Lützow would receive his Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords on October 11, 1941.

A truly capable elite enemy,
