    Probably it was the 212nd Long-Range Air Bomber Regiment

      Hi Amvas,

      Actually 212 DBAP was with 52 Long Range Bomber Aviation Division, 3rd Bomber Aviation Corps. My source - Khozhevnikov - says it was 1st Bomber Aviation Corps (53, 200, 203, 204 DBAP). According to Skripko amd Timin 212 DBAR was bombing Suwalki that day.

      thanks

        Aha, I also used Skripko. It wrote about order for 212nd DBAP to bomb Koenigsberg. But I didn't find any record it was performed. That's why I wrote "probably".
        Today I saw that this order was canceled later.

        Here it writes on June 22 it was the 40th BAP to bomb Koenigsberg on June 22

        Also from
        http://www.geroi-vov.ru/doc/6/10/3
        we can learn that it was the 200th DBAP/40th DBAD to bomb Keonigsberg on June 23
