Re: Ivan Shamanov

Hi Michael,
I think that Ivan G. Shamanov flew to combat missions only on the types DB-3f and IL-4.
Only on this type of aircraft the pilot does not control the weapon.

In Russia, the pilots of the bombers did not become aces for the downed enemy aircraft. Only conditionally - as the commander of the crew.

С уважением,
