General Report ..................................................................................................................................................................... (6.)

No, I know why we saw such little contact today. The red air force was massing to launch a vast bombing strike against Anapa. We scrambled to a flight of 3 enemy groups consisting of ground-attack aircraft. My flight engaged a group of Il-2s over the bay of Novoroskya. Hot e but no confirmed kills. I was flying back to rejoin the second flight when I was hit from below me by a lone hurricane. I had to bail but got us safely.
