7./JG 26 loss on the 21 Feb 1943

I'm trying to figure out the loss of 7./JG 26 Fw 190 A-5 (# 1078) on the 21 Feb 1943 at Loknja (It's listed in JFV 12/III as unknown pilot to Luftkampf, SE of Loknja, FSA, 100%). No claims were made by 7/JG 26 until the 05 Mar 1943 (Stationed in Gatschina from the 28 Feb 43 - May 43). From the 17 Feb 43 - 28 Feb 43 they were in Heiligenbeil. So was this a loss in the west before going to Russia?

Loknya sounds quite Russian to me. See for example this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loknya,_Pskov_Oblast , or perhaps some other Loknya. Besides, Volume 12 is generally entitled Einsatz im Osten, thus nothing to do with the west I believe.

Thanks Sidney. I had found Loknya, Pskov Obl. and the German spelling is Loknja. I also found Luknja, Slovenia and wanted to make sure it had nothing to do with that location for some unknown reason that they would have went there. There is a place outside of Leningrad called Lukashi which I eleminated as they had not arrived in that area yet. Even in the JFV books there are some definite Russian claims in the JFV 10 books for JG 5 in the west mainly over the Baltic off Finland - Sweden.
