Question Damages and Probably Destroyed Claims During the Vietnam War

Gentlemen,

Were there any reports of US fighter pilots during the Vietnam Air War having damaged and probable claims over North Vietnamese fighter planes. I know that Richard S. Ritsche had five air to air kills and a least a couple of probables. Any more examples?

Sincerely,

Edward L. Hsiao

Hi Edward,

Dear Edward,


Here is a starting point. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...he_Vietnam_War


It, of course, does not include enemy losses, damage or probables from ground fire, including anti-aircraft weapons.



Best,
Ed

I remember that Leo K. Thorsness had besides a confirmed kill,had a probable kill as well.
