Milaev left 13 IAP in August 1941.
In February 1942, he was posted to 46 IAP and initially flew Hurricanes with this unit.

On 18 March 1943, 46 IAP became 68 GIAP.
On 20 September, 68 GIAP was withdrawn from combat to train on the Bell Airacobra (which they had started to train on in June) but a group of the most skilled pilots from the unit that quickly had mastered the Airacobra was seconded to 28 GIAP. Milaev was one of these pilots seconded.
On 9 and 10 October 1943, he claimed a Fw 190 on each day.
He then returned to 68 GIAP, which went into combat again on 3 June 1944.
