368th Fighter Group
Aerial Victory Credits
USAF (AFHRA) records credit the 368th FG with:
126 Confirmed Aerial Victories
Aerial Victories by Squadron per AFHRA:  
Group HQ:  1  395th FS:  38  396th FS:  41  397th FS:  46

368th FG records credit the group with:
149 Confirmed Aerial Victories with 20 Probable & 59 Damaged
Aerial Victories by Squadron:  395th FS:  47    396th FS:  44    397th FS:  58
These credits are subject to change as research continues
We desire to be as accurate as possible.
Why the disparity in aerial victories?  In fact, the official total should be higher.
The Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA) is missing XIX TAC Victory Credits Board
documents # 71, 80, and 81.  These documents, therefore,cannot be used in tabulating AFHRA
group and individual victory totals.
 Document #79, containing 4 confirmed and six
unconfirmed 368th FG victories was missing until 2006.  368th FG Historian and Author Tim
Grace located it during his research and made it available to the AFHRA.  The AFHRA updated
their records accordingly.  It is possible the other missing documents contain some of the
victories claimed by the group.  Curiously, Ninth Air Force placed some claims in an
“unconfirmed” category and did not count them as official victories, probable, or damaged.  
Some supplementary data was obtained through individual citations (such as Air Medal,
Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star and Distinguished Flying Cross citations) that
specifically cite air victories.  Other aerial victories were credited through mission reports, and
other researcher sources.
