Yes, yogybär, that is what I talking about, directly.

Typo? Do You mean "Il-4 so low"?

Actually, Il-4 (with DB-3F) WERE used in mid summer, july-august as DAY bomber, during Kursk battle. But suffered great losses, and trasferred to night-only actions.

Genlmen - lets try to confirm/unconfirm JG 51 losses in air and Luftwaffe losses on the ground by Il-2 and Pe-2 attacks. Any ideas what geschwader could suffer losses on that day? 8 june, 10 june?

8 June 1943

Hello guys

First, a huge thank you to Evgeny for posting this information. It is great to have this information regarding Russian operations on the Eastern Front. The only thing that I can add in regards to JG 51 losses on either day is this quote from Weal's JG 51 book: "One report claims that the Focke-Wulfs destroyed 51 enemy machines without loss on 8 June!" Please note that Weal is not always reliable according to what I have read but hopefully someone with access to a JG 51 loss list can add to or correct this information. Concerning the Il-4, I too have seen the Il-2 identified as Il-5 and Il-7, particularly by JG 52, but I have my doubts that this designation would have been used for anything but a twin-engined bomber in the majority of instances. Just my two cents. Concerning the raids, we already know that IV. and 15.(span)/JG 51 engaged the raid to Sescha and II./JG 3 engaged the raid to Kharkov and Mikoyanovka on 10 June, but has anyone attempted as of yet to sort out the 8 June raids?

Horrido!

Leo

41 x Il-2 m.H. (correctly identified, Il-2 twoseater)
23 x Il-4 (actually Il-2 twoseater)
46 x Il-5 (actually Il-2 twoseater)

Hi Evgeny,

Thank you very much for posting the data.

Is there any chance you could post up similar data for the VVS attacks on 6-8May43.

Best Regards

Andy Fletcher

Re: VVS operations 6-8 may & 8-10 june 1943, claims and losses.

Yes, a bit later.

There is a big difference between those operations.

6-8 may it was many small raids, to 10 or more airfields in each under attack.

8 - 10 june only few airfields were under attack, but attack groups of VVS were large.

Re: VVS operations 6-8 may & 8-10 june 1943, claims and losses.

I found this in Jagdgeschwader 3 "Udet" in WW2 by Jochen Prien and Gerhard Stemmer. It stated in the losses for 08Jun43 5./JG3 Obgefr. Heinz Welsch (MIA) Air combat LaGG-3, 20 km west of Belgorod Bf-109G-4 Wkr. 14 858 and II/JG3 engine trouble, belly landing south of Belgorod, 35%. He stated in that Welsch was escorting Ju-87 when he was shot down by La-5's.
