|Hmm. I thought you said you were reading the books on this -- most of them are very clear and explicit as to what aircraft flew. Some of the kills claims are wrong. |
The KPAFAC was initially equipped with the post-war Yak-9P (all metal version of the wartime Yak-9D) and the Il-10 for combat, and the U-2 (Po-2), Yak-6/16, and Yak-12 and Yak-18 for liaison/training aircraft.
The PLAAF was initially equipped with the La-9, MiG-9, Tu-2, and later the MiG-15 versions as well as Yak-17UTI trainers for conversion training.
The Soviets flew La-11 night fighters and MiG-15 fighters.
One stray A-20G "Boston" (Soviet name which combined the US aircraft and the British name for the DB-7 together) and one Il-12 were also shot down.
The USAF did shoot down the majority of the propeller losses among Yak-9 and Il-10 types. The Royal Navy, RAAF and SAAF did not get any as far as I knowl, other than the one shot down by the cruiser. The US Navy and Marines mostly got the slower "Bedcheck Charlie" aircraft as their F7F-3N and F4U-5N were better suited for "low and slow" intruders than the F3D Skynight or USAF F-94B Starfire.
