okay then,

A story of a pilot of a spitfire mark I.

Our Spitfir Mark 1 was equipt with a 1030hp
Rolls-Royce Merlin motor, was armed with eight 7,62 mm
Browning mitrailleurs and had a ceiling of about
9750 meter. The bf109E, our most important opponent, had
a higher ceiling and a better armement than as well
the spitfire as the hurricane. The BF109F had a canon
that fired through the nave of the propeller, so that
the pilot had a great advantage that he exactly in his
flight direction could aim and fire. Our spitfires were
better turnable, but with only turnability alone you don`t
win a aircombat and the turning of sharp curves is more
suitable to a defensive than to an offensive tactic.
The superior turnability of the Spitfie could get out
of problems if you saw the enemy in time. When you take
it entirely the Bf109F was some better than the Spitfire
Mark I.

The messerschmitts evaded us as usual by making a half roll and a steep dive.Bader went after them.

Our spitfire Mark VB with his two canons was superior to the
bf109F, but when the formidable FW190 came we had no chance against this fighter.The FW190 was faster, had a higher ceiling and was better armed than the spitfire mark V.

One small detail what took my attention.

The hurricanes occupied the enemy bombers while the spitfires protected the hurricanes.

So this was a small story. I have so much to write.

I think it is a good idea when people asks something that i
will reply with details out the books, okay?

okay here is a story, some facts about the zero..

The A6M2 model II was the first version of the zero that
came in production. The very turnable and heavyarmed Zero
got the name during the war against China and during the first months of the war against America the name unvictoreous. But when the american once the vulnuablitly
points of the zero had discovered (the light construction
and the absence of armour) came a fast end to the dominion
of these japanese fighter.

some facts:

The i-16 and the p40 were no party to the zero.
The Zero was no party to the hellcat.

Shall i write more?

I hope that i wrote this in good english i have translated
this from dutch into english.
