During World War I, Kampfgeschwader were specialized bomber units in the Luftstreitkräfte. Formally known as Kampfgeschwader der Obersten Heersleitung, or Kagohl for short, they were assets directly controlled by the Oberste Heeresleitung, the German Army's high command, rather than by army, corps, or division commanders. In 1917, the Kagohls were reorganized into Bombengeschwader der Obersten Heersleitung (Bogohl) of three Bombenstaffeln (Bosta), each of six heavy bombers and several additional light bombers.

dbo:abstract
  • La Kampfgeschwader (formalmente Kampfgeschwader der Obersten Heersleitung, spesso abbreviato in Kagohl o KG) era uno stormo (geschwader) da bombardamento della componente aerea del Deutsches Heer, l'esercito dell'Impero tedesco, durante la prima guerra mondiale (1914-1918), direttamente controllate dalla Oberste Heeresleitung, autorità suprema di comando dell'esercito tedesco. Ogni Kampfgeschwader aveva una propria base operativa e sei squadriglie di bombardieri, dette Kampfstaffeln (singolare Kampfstaffel, abbreviato in Kasta). Originariamente pensate per bombardamenti strategici, vengono inizialmente utilizzati come unità per bombardamento tattico visto che i primi aerei a disposizione non avevano abbastanza autonomia per raggiungere gli obiettivi strategici nemici. Nel 1917 le Kampfgeschwaders furono riorganizzate in Bombengeschwader der Obersten Heersleitung (abbreviato in Bogohl o BG) ognuna formata da tre Bombenstaffeln (abbreviato in Bosta), ciascuna delle quali equipaggiata con sei bombardieri pesanti e diversi bombardieri leggeri aggiuntivi.

Formally known as Kampfgeschwader der Obersten Heersleitung, or Kagohl for short, they were assets directly controlled by the Oberste Heeresleitung, the German Army's high command, rather than by army, corps, or division commanders. Each Kagohl consisted of a headquarters element and six flights, or Kampfstaffeln, of bomber aircraft. Originally intended as strategic bombers, they were repurposed as tactical bombing units when it became apparent their aircraft did not have the range to reach strategic targets. In 1917, the Kagohls were reorganized into Bombengeschwader der Obersten Heersleitung (Bogohl) of three Bombenstaffeln (Bosta), each of six heavy bombers and several additional light bombers. In World War II, Kampfgeschwader units were full bomber wings within the 1935-45 Luftwaffe, consisting of three or more Kampfgruppe bomber groups, as a part of a typical Luftflotte's medium or heavy bomber strength.
