    I was wondering if you guys have any information on the Soviet Pe-8 raids to Berlin. How successful were they and what kind of losses did the Soviet bombers suffer?

    I dont have any information that i could post, but i remember reading somewhere, or i think i remember correctly, that the initial raids were very succesful, as in the bombs were dropped on the city, with few losses. However as the raids increased in frequency, the losses started to mount, split between fighters and AA and AAA, though i think the anit-aircraft guns got more kills than the fighters, the skies over berlin controlled by the allies.
