There are separate categories for combat aircraft and other planes used for transport, training, etc. The chart indicates that the total Soviet aircraft losses (all types) was 106,400 of which 46,100 were considered to be combat losses. The losses of 'combat aircraft' (Bombers, Ground-Attack, Fighters) was 88,300 of which 43,100 were identified as combat losses.
Sorry, I'm not so much competent !
Its very interesting, substantiate publication in russian Internet !
Author: Aleksieyenko V.I. - "Sovietskiye VVS nakanune i v gody Velikoy Otechestvennoy Voyny" - 11 tables.
Naturally in russian language !!!
-------------------------------
Correct address
http://klad.hobby.ru/alekseenko.htm - not working and automatic changing to other....

Another way :
http://klad.hobby.ru/milarch.htm
1- menu left side, to find "Publications" in russian text started similar: "IIyblu..." (in menu - 11 position down)
2- and on the right frame to find second link down with text started similar from : "Cobetckue......"
Best regards
Marek
