Spanish Civil War Aces

Good evening and happy new year Gentlemen,

I've worked through Alfredo Logoluso's highly recommendable "Fiat CR.32 Aces of the Spanish Civil War"
https://www.amazon.de/Spanish-Aircra.../dp/B01F9G0F5Y
and wonder if it's possible to identify all aces with 15 or more Spanish Civil War kills. However, it's particularly difficult to find the decimals of the shared kills (s. below).

Cheers,

Michael

Re: Spanish Civil War Aces

...I would be extremely interested to find all the decimals of the shared kills of Gritsevets because he might be the top-scorer of the calendar year 1938 as well as the ranking Polikarpov I-16 ace.

Re: Spanish Civil War Aces

Good morning,

Ivan Lakeev's score is indicated with values between 12+16sh and 16+20sh.
http://www.soviet-aces-1936-53.ru/abc/l/lakeev.htm
May it be that the former is his Spanish Civil War score and the latter his total score? He is alleged to have claimed one or two Chalchin Gol kills and one WW2 kill plus maybe another two shared. But then still 1+2sh are missing. He is said to have fought in four Wars. Did he maybe claim anything in the Winter War against Finland ?

Cheers,

Michael
