Article name[edit]

Why is this "List of German World War II Ground Attack aces" and not "List of German World War II ground attack aces" per WP:MOS? Why is "ground attack" capitalized? Is this a proper noun? Ground Zero | t 15:46, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Purpose of article[edit]

is this a list of flying aces or those with ground attack scores - the intro doesn't make it clear. GraemeLeggett (talk) 15:46, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

Tonnage sunk column?[edit]

Any possibility of adding a column for naval tonnage sunk? I know Ruedel accounted for at least one battleship, and Germany made heavy use of JU-88s in anti-convoy warfare. 99.41.142.43 (talk) 05:40, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorting[edit]

I came here from the Hubertus Hitschhold article, being curious as to where he came in the 'pecking order'. I was rather disappointed to realize that because (I presume), his number of missions is not known, or at least, they are not shown. Maybe for that reason, I could not find Hitschold himself either!

Apart from filling in the obvious omission, it might be a better idea to sort this list alphabetically.

PS. If the Ju 87 was a dive bomber/ground attack aircraft, how did the individuals achieve 'ace' status as Wikipedia's own article states: "A flying ace is a military aviator credited with shooting down several enemy aircraft in aerial combat".

Victories[edit]

I'd like to remove columns "Tank victories" and "Aerial Victories" as unsourced from 2011/2012. None of the numbers are cited to WP:RS but at least the sorties are potentially verifiable. Would there be any objections? K.e.coffman (talk) 09:23, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
