A.D. Did you fly during operational pauses?

The most intense activity was during operations. Then we flew a lot, but for that time was needed, and corresponding preparation. Crews, equipment were being prepared. During pauses between operations we flew anyway. Performed tactical missions. Of course, with smaller forces. We would be sent to support infantry or to destroy columns on the march. For example, Pokryshkin flew more than 500 sorties. Participated in 84 dogfights. Shot down 59 aircraft. I also have 84 combat sorties. But if you translate our effectiveness into money, I wouldn't be short of him. Be sure of that. Of course, ground attack pilots' hands are covered in blood up to the elbows. But it was our duty, and I think we did a first class job. Did everything we could. Well, and God didn't pass us by with "crosses".

there are many other stories here, if you are looking for something specific let me know my " po Russki yasik" is good enough to maybe help you find it..

Then you can use an 'on line' translator for the rest
Kolichestvo pobed Pokrishkina somniltelno, ono moglo bi bit namnogo menshe chem 59.
Ok, ok, ok...mobet bit ya plojo virazilsya. Ij BILO menshe 59-ti...y tozhe samoe mozhno skazat pro Rechkalova y Kozheduba.
