I./KG 51 losses on 28 April 1942

Hello, I would like to know the details (WNr, crews) of the I./KG 51 losses over Novorossiysk on 28 April 1942.

Below is what I have on this battle:

Quote:
On 28 April 1942 33 Ju 88 A-4 of I./KG 51 attacked the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk but ran into one of the fiercest Soviet fighter opposition thet had ever encountered. Only close cooperation among the skilled German air gunners prevented a complete rout. Two Ju 88 were shot down and several other returned with damage and injured crewmen. Two claims of the German gunners of 1./KG 51 are known, Ofw. Göuls claiming an I-16 Rata at 2.200 m and Fw. Wolf an I-15 at 2.500 m, both at 1530 hrs over the target.

They had met the Mig-3 of 7 IAP of VVS-ChF (the air force of the Soviet Black Sea Fleet). One pilot of his unit, Serzhant Leonid Ivanovich Sevryukov, was reported to shot down a bomber and then destroyed another in a ramming attack, a taran, but was killed in the collision. At the time of his death he had flown 151 sorties and his final score was 4 victories. He was posthumously awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union on 23 October 1942.

Soviet fighters and AA gunners claimed ten victories against only one Soviet fighter lost, the Mig-3 flown by Sevryukov.
