Operation Göring-Programm

Göring programme

This was a German armaments programme designed to quadruple production for the Luftwaffe (26 June/29 July 1941).

In light of the scale of German aircraft losses in recent operations, on 29 July 1941 Generalfeldmarschall Erhard Milch, the inspector general of the Luftwaffe, declared the 'Göring-Programm' to be inadequate and promulgated a new programme as the ‘Elch-Programm’.
