What kind of stats exactly? The numbers of air sorties were quoted in Zetterling&Frankson and other books, If I remember correctly.

More detailed information than provided in that book, like a breakdown of the specifics fired, weight of fire, etc.

I know that the Zetterling Kursk stats book has some information, as does the TDI- Lawrence Kursk book, which I have the abridged version. This is missing the Soviet-German artillery fire appendix.

There are daily reports of the Luftflotte 6 with records of the numbers of sorties by type, tonnage of bombs dropped, claims etc. Like this:

Probably, that would provide some stats you are looking for.
