I was just wondering about which was the highest claiming soviet fighter regiment during WWII, I think it may be one of the following :

- 16 GvIAP (I-153, I-16, Mig-3, Yak-1, P-39D to Q)

- 9 GvIAP (LaGG-3, Yak-1, Yak-1b, P-39, La-7)

- 5 GvIAP (LaGG-3, La-5, La-5F, La-5FN, La-7)

The 16 GvIAP scored 697 kills from 1941 to 1945 and lost about 80 pilots (almost half of them in the first 8 months of the war), but I don't know the others'score, does anyone have some info about this ?
