  1. Mongolian sources state that a Mongolian R-5 serialled '5', piloted by Demberel and gunner Dori, attacked the hostile vehicle convoy and destroyed a truck transporting 28 soldiers. Allegedly Demberel also engaged two enemy aircraft in the air. One of which was shot down, the other was damaged and fled making this the first Mongolian air combat.
