How did a top Soviet ace shoot down American planes during the WWII?

"It may sound unbelievable, but in the heat of battle Kozhedub was even forced to defend himself against American pilots. After repelling several German Messerschmitt fighters during the Battle of Berlin, he encountered American B-25 bombers and their escorting fighters who mistook him for the enemy.

“Who are you firing at?! Me?!!”, Kozhedub recalled with indignation years later (link in Russian). Forced to defend himself, he shot down two P-51 Mustang fighters.

Another time, when on patrol, he shot down several US B-17 Flying Fortress bombers that didn’t react to repeated warnings after intruding into Soviet occupation zone airspace in Germany.

The distinguished career of the Soviet ace didn’t stop in Germany. Under his leadership, the 324th Fighter Aviation Division claimed 239 victories in the Korean War (1950-1953)."
