If "the foe" follows through the turn it would be going to be him to end up low and slow, not the turn fighter. And the LaGG-3S35 certainly is not a pure turn fighter. At low altitudes (< 1500m), the overall performance is pretty much as good as that of a 109F-4.Originally posted by Treetop64:
Sure, but any turn-fighter can only out-turn its foe so much up to a point. Keep that up and sooner or later it'll end up being slow and low. Easy meat by then.
Turn fighting is mostly defensive in nature.
