Points system in the LW

Hello,

We all know the points system instituted for the award of the RK.
In 1943, 40 pts were necessary for the RK, but how many more for the Oak Laves, Swords and even Diamonds?
Did the number of points increase in the later stages of the war?
Do we know, for instance, how many points had Priller or Oesau?

hi, i think ,the more you shot down, from 1944,say bombers,for them all it could be 30 50 more bombers,,if you were lucky,esp" b17s , from the rear,
deadly,i know it sounds ,far fetched,as ive just read a piece on it, i think it was high commands fault, from 1941 russia,to increase the knights cross to 40 kills,as from 20 1940 france bob,.time, but no wonder the luftwaffe were masters,in aces,it was pure guts to go for a big 40 and 75 kills,at wars end,,but a pity, some were not so lucky,,
gary..........

Merci Olivier.
But this article does not really answer my question.
How many points were necessary to get the OL/S/D and did the number of points increase during the war?
