P.Z.L. P.37 bomber 'kills' claimed by Soviet fighter pilots?

I am looking for info on any P.Z.L. P.37 bomber 'kills' claimed by Soviet fighter pilots.

I know that Lt. Fyodor Arkhipenko (unit and fighter type?) shot down a P.Z.L. P.37 somtimes in the Autumn of 1941 (when exactly?). Reportedly, Cpt. Ivan Kozhedub had also one victory over a 'Los' (when exactly?).

One Rumanian P.37 was shot down on 3 May 1944, N. of Pascani, in the Rumanian region of Moldavia, reportedly by Yak fighters. The crew bailed out and was taken POW. Who could have been the victor?

Thanks,

Hello,
In Autumn of 1941 Arkhipenko served in 17 IAP, flying LaGG-3s.
But there is nothing in documents about his PZL-37 'Los' victory. This name not found in documents at all. What may be the PZL-37 - those misterious 'PZL-bombers', but this also may be any other enemy plane non-familiar to Soviet pilots at the moment in concrete battle area.

Thanks, M.B., for the details.

I just received word of another similar claim: on 27.6.1941 one P.Z.L. P.37 bomber was claimed by pilots of 146 IAP in Tarutino area. Any further info on this one?

Thanks,

According to my sources there is not any PZL-37 claimed by 146 IAP pilots. On 27.06.41 2 Bf109s and 1 PZL-24 were claimed, the latter - in 'Felcieu' area.

Reportedly, the info comes directly from a document of the 146 IAP, so it is official claim.
