Luftwaffe - German Air Force - Order of Battle

The Luftwaffe order of battle nomenclature is slightly tricky, since the German words "geschwader" and "staffel" [plural "staffel"] both literally translate as "squadron." The organizational hierarchy runs from Division to Wing ["geschwader"] to Squadron ["staffel"], with alphanumeric designations running from single digit Divisions to two-digit Wings to three digit squadrons, with Squadron numbers deriving from Wing numbers.
