Perceiving a lack of aggression in the fighter force and unhappy with their protection of the bombers, Göring wants to put young and successful pilots in command of squadrons - starting with Mölders and Galland. He wants the squadrons to be led in the air by the commodore and the commodore to to be the most successful pilot in the squadron.
Göring visits the Channel front to criticise the fighter protection of bombers. He wants close protection of the bombers, and says that's more important than recording kills. When he asks Mölders and Galland what they would like, Mölders asks for a more powerful engine in the Bf 109, Galland asks for Spitfires as they are more suited to the task they've been ordered to do.
