Pierre Clostermann was credited officially with 23 victories (most
of them against fighters) and 5 probables. He also destroyed 225 trucks,
72 locomotives, 5 tanks and 2 torpedo boats. Many references credit him
with 29 to 33 victories. These probably include his "ground" kills, which
were not recognised by the RAF. However, recent, more detailed analysis
of his combat reports and squadron accounts indicate his true score was
around 15 to 19.
