Close air support continued to play an important role in the fighting on the south face of the salient on July 6. The aircraft of VIII Air Corps of Air Fleet IV provided particularly effective support of the attack by II Panzer Corps. During the day, however, the Soviet 2nd and 17th Air Armies flew many more sorties than the Luftwaffe -- 1,632 compared to 899. In addition, the Soviet figures represented an increase over those for July 5, while the number of Luftwaffe sorties declined. In the air, as on the ground German strength was declining.

Wellcome to the Forgotten Board.

What title is the book? If you can, check out the uses of aircraft and stuff like flight numbers, operational altitudes, etc...We need that kind of info. Thanks.

Thanks, the book I was reffering to is "The Battle of Kursk" by David M Glantz and Jonathan M House, it's brand new in fact but I'd expect lots of stuff about Tanks and other land forces instead of Air Force stuff, if I spot some interesting stuff in this book though you can bet that I'll let you know.
