With 35 confirmed victories, 24-year-old Hauptmann Eduard Tratt was the highest scoring Zerstörer pilot in WW2, flying twin-engined fighters during the invasion of Poland, the Battle of Britain, and in Russia, before being killed on 22nd February 1944 when his Me 410 Hornet was brought down by the P-51 Mustang of Captain Jack T Bradley (CO of 353rd FS).

During the engagement, Bradley's wingman, Lieutenant Wah Kau Kong, was hit by cannon fire from a Me 110G and exploded in mid-air.
