Friedrich Obleser

Victories : 127
Country : Germany
Fought in : WW2
Fought for : Axis
Died : 5th June 2004

Awarded the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross

Friedrich Obleser was born 21 February 1923 in Pottenstein, Austria. He diedĖ 5 June 2004 in Neunkirchen, Austria. Obleser was a German World War II fighter ace and was credited with 127 aerial victories achieved in 500 combat missions.

Friedrich Obleser at one point questioned the aerial claims made by Erich Hartmann. Hartmann asked GŁnther Rall to have Obleser transferred to be Hartmann's wingman for a while. Obleser became a witness on some of Hartmann's claims and no longer questioned Hartmann's claims.

After the World War II Friedrich Obleser settled in West Germany and continued his career in the Luftwaffe der Bundeswehr after the re-militarization of West Germany in 1955. From October 1, 1978 until his retirement on March 31, 1983, he held the position of Inspekteur der Luftwaffe der Bundeswehr. At the end of his career he had attained the rank of Generalleutnant.
