RE: Carpet Bombing
speaking in generalities now. I could do research of all my notes and
documents, but that would take quite a while and I don't know when I could get
to it. The generalities I speak of are Soviet Unit histories which spell
out the mission of the various divisions and regiments stationed in China.
Among the primary missions for most, if not all of the units was to defend
the hydroelectric plant on the Yalu. They always summarize their stay in
China as meeting all mission objectives, to include defending the plant.
It is more difficult with the air units, but I do remember reading AAA shoot
down reports from batteries stationed by the hydroelectric plant as well as bomb
damage assessments. From the Soviet point of view, the UN seemed to be
pretty ineffectual. If I get the time, I will try an go into more
message dated 11/26/2001 5:38:30 AM Pacific Standard Time,
Soviet documents in their archives stated that they oppossed the
missions on the dam and that they were quite successful in defending it,
both with AAA and with MIGs.
Very interesting to
Do you have more info on that?
Do they tell how many
MIGs were sent up?
How many US planes do they claim to have shot down?
How about the official US history?
Does the Pentagon admit any
loss of planes
on those two days' missions over Suhio Dam?
