Default Godwin von Brumowski by Ivan Berryman

Godwin von Brumowski by Ivan Berryman
Released as part of the Brumowski series, July 2013

With dozens of confirmed victories at the end of WW1, the great Austro-Hungarian ace, Godwin von Brumowski was a formidable opponent, his red Oeffag-built Albatros D.III 153.45 of Flik 41J notorious in the skies above the Piave River on the Italian Front. Enemy fighters, bombers and balloons alike fell to his guns, outclassed by both his airmanship and skills as a marksman. Brumowski's confirmed total at the war's end was 35, with many more 'probables', making him the highest-scoring pilot in the Austro-Hungarian air force. He is depicted here, standing next to 153.45 in typical flying helmet and leather coat, the balloon badge of the Luftfahrtruppen, just visible on the red collar patch of his tunic. The swirl pattern applied over the red base coat on two of his D.IIIs was a derivative of a camouflage pattern that he developed during his time flying the Hansa-Brandenberg D.1 (KD) earlier in the war, when the tresses were applied over a green finish to help his aircraft blend in to the verdant forests of the Isonzo region. Although never intended as any form of camouflage, the bright red of his three red Albatros D.IIIs, with their ghoulish skull emblems, were inspired by the German ace, Manfred von Richthofen, who Brumowski briefly met during his detachment to the Western Front with Jasta 24.
