I have been searching for a good site that details the Soviet VVS effort during WW2. I have not seen any websites that go into great detail like those on the luftwaffe and the western Allies. It would be nice to get details on for instance air regimental bases, what air regiments were promoted to guards regiments, what planes each regiment flew and when and the various aces and pilots of the vvs including pictures and kills recorded.
Any help with some links would be much appreciated

I know the feeling. The Russian side of the conflict is woefully undervalued historically when you consider that the LW lost most of their planes on the Eastern Front.
Fighter pilots on both sides were engaged in the biggest aerial battles ever to have taken place. I`ve read 65% of all LW planes were lost on that front! Yet more of this information still seems hard to get.
I managed to find a lot out in the Library, and bought some books on it, but I do wish more info was available.
