29 may 1944, 15 AF raid to Austria - need help.

Hi gents!

Looks like a huge massacre happened.

As for my sourses say:

829 B-17 and B-24 flew to attack targets in Wollesdorf, Wiener Neustadt & Atzgersdorf, Austria, and Poderica in Yugoslavia.

USAAF lost 23 aircrafts (how many bombers & fighters from this - I dont know). Fighters (P-51 and P-38) claimed 60+ enemy aircrafts shot down (again, is direct quantity known?).

Bf 109G-6 pilots from JG 3 claimed 2 B-24.
Bf 109G-6 pilots from JG 27 claimed 10 B-24 & 3 P-51.
Bf 109G-6 pilots from JG 302 claimed 3 B-24
Bf110G-2 pilots from II./ZG 1 claimed 6 B-24 & 3 P-51.

Total: 21 B-24 & 6 P-51.

I dont know the Bf109 losses, but II./ZG1 lost 10 Bf110G-2 (most of them - crew KiA) and not less than 3 - damaged, with injured crew.

So:

What P-51 and P-38 squadrons/groups participated in this raid to escort?

How many Me-110 were claimed by fighter pilots, and how many - by B-17/B-24 gunners?
