Re: Another Korean - Shootdown databases
I have to concur with Joe. I have few of the PLAAF claims listed on that site
logged in, and even on days when there are "confirmed" losses the Soviets had
a lot more and better (relatively speaking) pilot reports of the situation
surrounding the losses.
As for the KPAFAC I tend to believe most of the FEAF claims for several
reasons, chief among them being that there are not many of them. Most of the pilots
and aircraft engaged were overmatched by US pilots in that period of the war,
and most of the losses are believeable. Since the KPAFAC will most likely
NEVER admit to any losses (or at least those where "Hero Pilot" Kim did not wipe
out at least a carrier's worth of aircraft single handed) doubt any
conformation will be forthcoming from them!
