Interesting, this case disturb me, so I would like to put and test it again. Why Sweden radio intelligence should colorize information? According it, two Soviet pilots from 145. IAP (of 4 I-15bis) had damaged planes, one of them force landed after light combats with 2 Gladiators. There are also know the pilots names: leytnant Benediktov (wounded after combat returned to the own base) and leytnant Bondarienko. The second one had force landed 14 km west of Kuolarjavii (maybe wrong written by me?) lake. This plane should be lost according this radio message (could not be pulled from landing place).17/01/40 (Martin & Salwen, F19) -2
These victories "are frankly farfetched" on the basis of radiointerception. One of the "shot down" fighters was broke at flight to front because of a mistake of the pilot. The second - " has turned over through a nose " (at us it refers to скапотировал) at landing in the airbase. It have restored.
For the sake of justice I shall tell, that I do not know, whether Swedes had the attitude to this failure. The Soviet documents do not specify this moment. The place, at least, coincides.
Why Slon do you strong believe there was nothing happened then? I know, you have not yet found any confirmation among Soviet papers, but it does not mean, that Sweden had made mistake (or wrong read the Soviet massage too)?
Some comment to this case?
