Under the proposed CONOPS, one fighter wing (Jagdgeschwader) would accompany each Kampfgeschwader during its entire mission--flown at 190mph at 13-15,000 ft--while another took off later, and --flying at the more tactically appropriate 300mph above 20,000 ft--would sweep ahead, attacking any interceptors rising to meet them.
From this point on three fighter wings (Jagdgeschwadern) were required to protect each Kampfgeschwader, thus limiting bomber operations to less than 300 sorties daily.

Kampfgeschwader 77 had been withdrawn from the front line in mid-July in order to replace its Dornier Do 17Zs with newer Junkers Ju 88s.
6) The figures for fighter sorties are plausible--some units made two sorties that day--but comparison of British and German records suggested that only about 300 bombers from Luftflotten 2 and 3 crossed the coast: the attacks by Luftflotte 5's Kampfgeschwader 26 and 30 from Norway were in fact the heaviest attempted raids of the day.
