Does anybody here know what the kill ratios were between the luftwaffe and the Soviet Airforces? Its just that all of the research i've done indicates that losses were much lower in the luftwaffe. Some solid figures would be apprieciated. Up until perhaps 1944 when i assume german losses overall would have esculated due to the failing state of the german war machine. Thanks.

Just for the record i did a search and nothing relevant came up so my sincerest apologies if your all sick of this question

during the battle of the Orel river bend the German air force claimed 1735 aircraft destroyed for a loss of 64. kill ratio of about 27 to 1. During the whole war the RAF kill ratio worked out at about 3.5 to 1. The 4th fighter group Blakeslees outfit showed a ratio of 4.5 to 1. This was the oldest and most experienced group in the ETO. The 56th fighter group(younger and less experienced) claimed a kill ratio of 8 to 1.

On the 1st August 1942 gunners of bombers were credited with 17 kills. The truth was they were bounced on the way out from the target by 3 190,s They came down from 30000 ft full bore when they made there pass . went over on there backs belching smoke. A jet would be needed to catch them . No hits were scored but 17 air medals were handed out for that one.
