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

Bridge attack mission with 3 planes.

Target was west of Krymskaya, bridge over large river. Ingressed west along the south coast, then crossed over the central lakes and followed the Delta east to our target. 2 bombs just missed, the 3rd bomb hit and destroyed the bridge. On egress, spotted massive flight of about 9 IL2's heading west. We followed them until closer to our lines then engaged, managed to get 2 of them. We did get the entire flight to turn around though so they never made it to their targets.

RTB successfully.
