Combat sorties of LW on East VI 1941?

I am looking for information about amount of combat sorties done by all LW units on Eastern Front on 22 VI 1941 (such general data, or more specific according three Luftflotte), or between 22-30 VI 1941.

One can say for example that all LW units had done about 4-5.000 (?) sorties on 22 VI 1941 over Russia (for only Luftflotte 2 was more then 2000 sorties)?

Regards,
MirekW

Re: Combat sorties of LW on East VI 1941?

Mirek - I dont know how many LW done, but to compare I can tell You how many VVS flew combat sorties:

from 22.06.41 to 10.07.41:
Front aviation: 45 000
Longrange Bombers: 2112

from 22.06.41 to 22.09.41:

VVS made 250 000 sorties.

Re: Combat sorties of LW on East VI 1941?

Hi thanks for fast replay, :-)

On 22 VI 1941 all VVS RKKA had done, if I right remeber, 6.500 sorties against invaders in one day. Second figure is 6000, but 6500 I think is better one.

mw

PS.
Intersting how many combat sorties were done by VVS VMF (Baltic and Black + other Fleets aviation units)?
Second, also combats sorties were dane by civil aviation (Aeroflot) and small NKVD air units, which operated individual (a few weeks later were incorporated into VVS RKKA).
