Fallschirm-Flak-Regiment 2

Formed in January 1944.

In June 1944 renamed Fallschirm-Flak-Regiment 12.

The battalions fought individually in 1945. The Stab had moved to the Eastern front in 1945, to control various flak units under II. Flakkorps. In April 1945, the Stab was attached to the 15th Flak-Brigade at Templin, while the I. and II. Abteilungen were in Luftgau VI on the lower Reine, and III. Abteilung in the Middle Reine area (Luftgau XIV). The III. Abteilung was renamed Fallschirm-Flak-Abteilung 9 on 17.3.45.

The regiment became Fallschirm-Flak-Regiment 121 on 28.3.45.

One source claims that the regiment was disbanded in 1945, I. Abt. becoming Fallschirm-Flak-Abteilung 3, II. Abt. becoming Fallschirm-Flak-Abteilung 6 and III. Abt. becoming Fallschirm-Flak-Abteilung 5. This is however uncertain. Only Fallschirm-Flak-Abteilung 12 (ex. III./Fallschirm-Flak-Regiment 11) was now attached to II. Fallschirm-Korps.
