Hiroyoshi Nishizawa's shared kills

Good morning Gentlemen,

Hiroyoshi Nishizawa scored a great number of shared kills in 1943.
Can anybody tell me where I can get the decimals, I mean the number of pilots who joined in his 1943 group kills ?:

Cheers,

Michael

Re: Hiroyoshi Nishizawa's shared kills

I have a new theory about Nishizawa: shortly before his death Nishizawa mentioned to his CO that he had 86 kills. What if this is more than just a guess ? He cannot have meant his individual kills (36) or his individual+shared kills (201). Did he mean his individual kills+the decimals of his shared kills ? If we assume that an average of 3 pilots shared in his 137 shared kills of 1943 then the whole score adds up to 86,73 (!)

What's your opinion ?
