Re: Most One Sided Luftwaffe Victory over the 8th Air Force


Great work, but your sum on claims is IMHO incorrect.

It stands to reason that adding HSS claims to the total leads to instant overclaim, since no kill was claimed in the first place - Viermot was forced to leave the formation, not downed.

The HSS, isn't a claim for a kill, so it should not be added to the total claims.

Leaves you with 84 + 5 = 89 total victory claims
