FS2004 German Air Force F-104G 'JA+101' (JG71). Textures only for the Captainsim F-104 Starfighter, depicting 'JA+101' of Jagdgeschwader 71 (Wittmund). TCE compliant. Two paints included: 1963 blank metal version and 1964 camo ("Norm 62"). JG 71 was put into service in 1959 and originally equipped with Canadair Sabre (F-86E). In 1961 it received the traditional "Richthofen" designation. The units base moved to Wittmund in 1962 and on April 9th 1963 the first F-104G Starfighter arrived, subsequently replacing the Sabre. In the following years, the F-104Gs primarily changed their role into fighter-bombers, getting assigned to fighter-bomber wings (Jagdbombergeschwader). By 1974, all F-104G of JG 71 were replaced by F-4F Phantom II. By Markus Hellwig.
