For players using Target for Today is their an accompanying Table 5-7 HIT DAMAGE AGAINST [ITALIAN] FIGHTER? I know their was one we used in the 87th - Bombers Over the Desert which included the Italians could this be imported here please. Do we need similar data for the Romanians, Bulgarians, Hungarians? I don't know how often we'll encounter them.

If you're referring to the note about removing one fighter when over the Med, that applies only to those zones where you are flying only over the Mediterranean Sea itself. If you are operating over any land mass, even if it is a split zone (i.e. Mediterranean - Greece) then you do not remove one fighter.
The two specialized tables handle encounters a little differently.
For QOTS players, at the top of the yellow column on our special B-3 table it states, “Use the standard B-3 Table from the original game for encounters over Greece, Crete, Bulgaria & Yugoslavia.” It is not the Med column representing vast empty spaces over the water.
For TFT players, as stated by crushedhat, over land, and over the Aegean with its proximity to airbases, the removal of one fighter from our special Table 5-3 does not apply. (The removal of the fighter over the Mediterranean tries to represent that fighter sweeps and early warnings were not as common far from land.)

They're not dumb questions.
The listing 'Med/Greece" means it is a split Zone, partly over the Med, partly over Greece,' and therefore treated as a 'land' zone and not as a 'Med' zone. In other words, considering limburger59's explanation of the rationale behind the reduction in EA over the Med, you are close enough to land that there are plenty of EA to run into.
Incidendly, you would also treat this as a 'land' zone for purposes of being subjected to additional flak if flying blow 10,000 Ft. If you had to Bailout, or Crash Land, you'd randomly determine whether you were over the land or water part of the zone.

limburger59: It seems that the Germans had some intelligence as to our mission today, as the number of fighters waiting for us along the route, especially in Zone 2, was above average.
