From "Regia Aeronautica Caccia & Assalto 1940-1943 Part I", p.12 "During this brief campaign (France), the Italian Air Force was able to shot down ten enemy aircraft, further destroying another fifty on the ground. The Regia Aeronautica in turn suffered at least ten planes lost in combat." No MM numbers are provided in this reference. I believe F. D' Amico did some work in this area, though not sure.
