The Korean air war
Hi Cookie and all-
We at HUMINT and COMINT were listening to every air battle that took place
during the Korean War and so we should be able to verify every kill.
Cookie, you know that our aircraft and personel were far superior to the
enemy. I can tell you about a dozen fights personally to prove this. Our
people were smarter and better educated than the enemy and the main point is
that they came from a "free society" rather than a "totalitarian" one so that
they had what we will loosely call "free will". The boys from a totalitarian
regime didn't have this important quality and in many cases they lacked the
will. They were used to being told what to do and when to do it and that's
where we had the edge.
The P-51 Mustang was the premier prop fighter and was superior to almost
everything the enemy had e.g. Il-10, Yak-9, etc. except the Mig-15 jet. But
the F-86 Sabres would kick-ass when up againt the Mig-15.
