I start playing the Russian campaign and in less than a month I got all the medals slots filled:

22 June 1941 Awarded Order of the Red Star
23 June 1941 Awarded Order of the Red Banner
29 June 1941 Awarded Gold Star of the Hero of the Soviet Union
4 July 1941 Awarded Second Gold Star
13 July 1941 Awarded Order of Patriotic War 2nd class
16 July 1941 Awarded Order of Patriotic War 1st
19 July 1941 Awarded Order of the Red Banner

The last one I already got it before. I played the German campaign and I finish it with the last two slots empty.

There's no error for the russian medals. If you finished the german campaign with the 2 last slots empty, it means your results weren't good enough to deserve the last 2 medals

I end that campaign with more than 300 air victories, 323 ground objects destroyed, about 160 missions completed and with the most high rank available. To give you an idea when free of task and with my wing ready I order them and I attacked nearby airfields and train or transport columns when available.

Gerhard Barkhorn from the luftwaffe had 301 kills and the best medal he got was The Knight's Cross to the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords.

He didn't get the Diamonds to the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords

And he didn't get the Golden Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds to the Knight's Cross

I believe the only one who got the Golden Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds to the Knight's Cross in the luftwaffe was Hans-Ulrich Rudel, check his resume at this link : http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/iron_cross/golden_diamonds/golddiamonds_recipient/rudel.htm

You right, I check that Hartmann (352 victories) got the same last medal as Barkhorn.
