Re: russian losses vs 8./JG 52 may 1942 mig-3 claims

hello,

About these claims of Dickfeld:

13,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt I-16 1015 _________ E N 76
13,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt MiG-1 5km östlich Storganskij 5km E Storganskij 1031 1000 E J 77
13,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt MiG-1 1032 _________ E N 78
13,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt MiG-1 1033 _________ E N 79

I-16s of 282 IAP and LaGG-3s of 164 IAP (overclaiming, actual losses were three aircraft in total)

14,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt MiG-1 10km östlich Salhow 10km E Salhow 936
14,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt MiG-1 941
14,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt MiG-1 945

6 IAP (VVS lost 14 planes; 5 Yak-1, 2 Il2-2; 4 LaGG-3 and some biplanes.)

14,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt MiG-1 1209 _________ E N 85 Although some sources say that he claimed MiG-1s in this engagement, he appears to have actually claimed IL-2s and both can be confirmed in Soviet loss records (a total of 3 lost for the day)
14,5.42 8./JG 52 Lt MiG-1 R-5 ("I-153 "Tchaika"")???? 1211 _________ E N 86 Although some sources say that he claimed MiG-1s in this engagement, he appears to have actually claimed IL-2s and both can be confirmed in Soviet loss records (a total of 3 lost for the day)

yes, after read this, misindentification for sure,

claims by Johannes Mathews,
info of the losses by Nick Hector,

6 iap, 282 iap , 164 iap for sure this month

about 131 iap, 790 iap, 427 iap, 515 iap, 572 iap?....
i really don't know..

regards
