What about the Japanese pilots that left their bass knowing that they would not return their last weapon was their aircraft and preferred death over surrender.
The Japanese gave the US a big run for their money.
What was with the mo/ustache?
A very wasteful approach, and difficult to find experienced instructors. Irish kamikaze pilots, in contrast, get a medal for completing five missions.
t's sobering to note that the Old Man in a bomber crew was probably no more than 25 and half the fighter pilots were in their teens.
Why did the Soviet Il/yushin-2 Sturmovik have an external/underslung oil cooler/radiator?Where it could be shot up, from behind, anyway, and U couldn't have a hardpoint.Was it to take advuntage of the "Meredith effect" or was it a poor man's cabin heater?And what about the P-51 Mustang and Hurricane, then?
But how did they cope with the fact that it wasn't actually on/over the Cg?lift?
Destroying the US Pacific fleet and most of their ground-based aircraft at Pearl Harbor was the equivalent of scoring a goal before kickoff.
