Re: Most successful U.S. four engined bombers over German/Japanese aircraft

I doubt very much that you will ever be able to find the right scores. American bombers made the worst overclaiming in history.

27th of September 1943:
American claims: 32 shot down, 7 probable and 24 damaged German planes.
German losses: 11

8th of October 1943:
American claims: 157 shot down, 22 probable and 85 damaged
German losses: 25 lost, 5 missing and 6 damaged

9th of October 1943:
American claims: 122 shot down, 29 probable and 61 damaged
German losses: 5 lost, 7 missing and 14 damaged

10th of October 1943:
American claims: 183 shot down, 21 probable and 51 damaged
German losses: 11 lost, 11 missing and 7 damaged
