I read today in the current issue of Warbirds International
about a pair of P-63 Kincobras coming back from Russia to the US for eventual resoration. The Article said the planes "participated in the short lived Manchurian campaign". Anybody know what kind of V V S, Japanese planes faced each other in the battle? If we're getting Japanese planes maybe it will be in a historical setting.
