Imaginary sounds like they are a lie, unless proven to be so I'd prefer the term uncertain. Although Obermaier may have used his biography, a quick scan (without resorting to any primary sources) shows a pattern that is fairly consistent for the last months of the war. Er flog fast bis zum letzten Kriegtag Einsätze, wobei er an der Ostfront 32 russische Flugzeuge abschoß.

What are the chances that some of the US types were actually Soviet types, making identification and verification of claims a little more difficult?

Is it certain that he didn't fly much during those days, is that based on his Flugbuch?

Just asking some questions, for the sake of knowledge, not trtying to push an argument as the forum moderator!

And now I see with eye serene
The very pulse of the machine;
A being breathing thoughtful breath,
A traveller between life and death;
