Re: Ivan Shamanov

Michael & Gabor,
rather, that case from the award Kulbatsky is the one from September 19/20. I was not exactly accurate - the award does not say that the plane was shot down by the navigator. Kulbatsky was the first to notice the Me-109 and told the pilot, and the merit was attributed to the entire crew.
18.09.1944 - the awards include the blocking of the Miskolc airfield and an attack on the highway convoys. Six cars destroyed and delayed the movement.
Kirill
