The 916 Starfighter puzzle

 

From 1959 until 1969 Germany received a total of 916 Starfighter:
30 F-104F, 749 (699 + 50) F/RF-104G, 137 TF-104G
The split-up between the different manufacturer was as follows:
 
Lockheed F-104F 30
Lockheed F-104G 96 (66 + 30)
Lockheed TF-104G 137 *
Messerschmitt/ARGE Süd F-104G 210
Fokker/ARGE Nord F-104G 255
SABCA/ARGE West F-104G 88
FIAT/ARGE Italien F-104G 50
MBB F-104G 50
Total   916
     
Of the 749 Single-Seater a total of 164 RF-104G were built.
Fokker/ARGE Nord Airforce 129
FIAT/ARGE Italien Airforce 8
FIAT/ARGE Italien Navy 27
 
Note: Initially 89 aircraft were ordered at SABCA to have the planned 700 RF/F-104G. But construction number 9082, planned for the Luftwaffe, was delivered to the Belgian Air Force, because construction number 9058, planned coded as "FX27", was damaged beyond repair on November 21, 1963 at the SABCA factory prior delivery. The Luftwaffe transferred the aircraft to the Belgian Air Force to let them have the planned 100 Starfighter.
 
*note: last 23 TF-104G aircraft were assembled by Messerschmitt
