Re: Morato's Air Combat Victories

hi,

about these claims:

24 15/07/1937 1 I-16 Destroyed CR.32 3-51 Brunete 2-G-3 2 I-15 lost and one I-16 (in other source 2 I-16 shot down), republicans claimed 7 between CR-32 and He-51
25 15/07/1937 1 I-16 Destroyed CR.32 3-51 Brunete 2-G-3 2 I-15 lost and one I-16 (in other source 2 I-16 shot down), republicans claimed 7 between CR-32 and He-51

i found in this web:
http://airaces.narod.ru/spane/minaev.htm

it seems that Minaev Alexander E. (Минаев Александр Ефимович) was is victim in this combat, but the other claim maybe was overclaim or only damaged....

regards
