Vazdushhni Vojski vs the USAAF

In looking through the Osprey book Slovakian and Bulgarian aces of WW II. I went to the USAAF WW II Combat Chronogy online and tried to match up losses and claims. Note: Vazdushni Vojski Royal Bulgarian Air Force

14 Nov 43 Sofia raid B-25s and P-38s
Bulgarians: 1-P-38 claim vs 1-Bf-109 downed pilot KIA and 2 damaged
USAAF 5 claims

27 Nov 43 Sofia raid B-24s and fighters
Bulgarians lost 1 pilot and 2 109s and 3 more extensively damaged vs several confirmed and probable B-24 kills. Two wrecks of B-24s found
USAAF chronology nothing (!?)

10 Dec 43 Sofia B-24s and P-38s
Bulgarians: no confirmed kills vs 1-D520 and pilot lost
USAAF no mention of any claims

20 Dec 43 Sofia and Elevsis airfield in Greece
Bulgarians: 3 b-24s and 7-P-38s claimed vs 3-109s lost and 2 damaged

Note one Bulgarian 109 rammed a B-24 and one crewman Sgt Robert henry Rener survived and was captured.
