It is noted in book:

" 3 Il-2 came under attack of enemy fighter UNKNOWN type".

It could be because VVS fighter pilots sayd directly Fw190 or Bf109. When they may saw Bf110, they may note it in combat report as "enemy fighter". Later, in high Staff, "enemy fighter" could be changed to "enemy fighter, type unknown".
My articles on Otto Kittel, Erich Rudorffer, Emil Lang (work in process).
