Herbert Kutscha was a German Luftwaffe fighter ace and recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross during World War II. The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross was awarded to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or successful military leadership. He was one of few Luftwaffe pilots to survive the whole war, serving from 1939 until 1945. During his career he was credited with 47 aerial victories in more than 900 missions.

Messerschmitt Bf 110E

Designed to meet a Luftwaffe requirement for a long range, multipurpose fighter, the Bf-110 was first flown on May 12th, 1936. Fast and well-armed, the Bf-110 lacked maneuverability—a flaw that became glaringly obvious during the battle of Britain, when Bf-110s suffered heavy losses and were withdrawn from battle. Redesigned Bf-110s were equipped with radar and enjoyed great success as night fighters, eventually becoming the Luftwaffe's primary aircraft in that role. Most of Germany's night fighter aces flew the Bf-110 at least once, and some of them—including top German night fighter ace Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer—flew it exclusively.
