I Have got a source that says on September 23; 1944, one yak-3 shot down seven fw-190s in a single dogfight.

"Luftwaffe fighters in combat with the Yak-3 tried to exploit surprise. This happened on 17th September 1944, when Fw 190s attacked a formation of three Yak-3s of the 66th Fighter Air Regiment over the Riga district of the front by coming out of the sun, shooting down two of the Soviet aircraft. On 23rd September the regiment gained its revenge when a Yak-3 formation led by Major I Vitkovsky shot down seven Fw 190s in a single dogfight."
Is that true ? And I'll be very thankfull for more info about yak-3's combat score.

"Shot down seven Fw-190s" here mean that this was only claims. In reality there may be 1 really shot down or even zero.
