That is incorrect.
On June 22, 1941, ARR had directly assigned to the anti-Soviet campaign a total of 253 warplanes (205 serviceable), completed by other airplanes for home defense and secondary duties.
The total number of aircraft assigned more or less to the Eastern Front is 672. [You can find all these data in my book on the Rumanian air force, published by Squadron/Signal, in 1999].
The overall total number of the entire Rumanian air force was, of course, much larger, about 1500 machines.
