Major Georgiy Vladimirovich Fedorov
1915 – 15 December 1943
|14/08/43||Order of Lenin|
Georgiy Fedorov was born in 1915.
When Germany invaded the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941, starshiy leitenant Fedorov served in 127 IAP, which was equipped with Polikarpov I-153s.
On 22 June 1941, he was seriously wounded in air combat and evacuated to a rear hospital.
In April 1942, he was posted to 286 IAP.
286 IAP was renamed to 867 IAP on 26 July 1942.
In September 1942, he left 867 IAP and was posted to 43 IAP.
He left 43 IAP in November 1942 when he was posted to 237 IAP.
Three pilots from 237 IAP claimed a shared He 111 south of Bol'shaya Rossoshka airfield on 12 December. One of the pilots were Vasiliy Limarenko and a second seems to have been Fedorov.
On 22 December, Vasiliy Limarenko claimed a shared destroyed He 111 over Height 133 (Stalingrad) together with another pilot.
It’s possible that this was claimed together with Fedorov, since he claimed a shared He 111 together with another pilot during the day.
On 3 February 1943, 237 IAP became a guard’s unit and was renamed to 54 GIAP.
In April 1943, he left 54 GIAP and was posted to 53 GIAP.
On 15 December 1943, major Fedorov was killed in a plane crash.
At the time of his death, Fedorov was credited with 2 shared biplane victories and a total of 2.
These had been claimed during 113 combat missions and 53 air combats (as of 2 June 1943).
