Nachtschlachtgruppe 2 was formed on the Eastern Front during the Russian winter. The squadron's objective was to harass Russian forces by dropping incendiary and fragmentation bombs on Russian positions at night. For these missions, the psychological effect of the Stuka dive bomber was magnified by cold and darkness. Despite the efforts of NSGr.2, the Russians' will did not break. By spring, the war had swung in the Soviets' favor.
