Scramble mission from Bagerovo to intercept enemy aircraft over kerch airfield.

Got up in the air and grouped up with stab leader and entered the fight. Confirmed 1 kill for lead. Confirmed 1 LA5 for me.

Friendly 190's were also providing support. No casualties on our side to my amazement.

After air targets were down, we did strafing runs on the landing craft trying to land on the south side of the coast. Lead got 2 flak cannons on the ships, and I got 1

we all RTB successfully.
