Japanese night claims

Hi

An idea about the identity of the B-17 (over Rabaul) claimed shot down on 11/06/1943 and the Hudson (RAAF?)(Ballale-Shortland Island) on 07/07/1943 by Japanese Night Fighters?

The Hudson: https://www.pacificwrecks.com/aircra...on/NZ2033.html


On November 6, 1943 a B-24 was lost on a mission to Rabaul, but it is not clear it was shot down at Rabaul. https://www.pacificwrecks.com/aircra.../42-72814.html

Re: Japanese night claims

Thank You

The claim for the Hudson matches.
For the B-17....maybe the B-24? with an error of identification.(claim also by KUDO Shigetoshi).
