Wait, I forgot:

A6M

some other Japanese fighters

Squeeze all these in between "LaGG Whatever" and "Me-262.

Further proof that the FW-190 was the best luftwaffe prop-driven fighter of the war.

The drop off from "Lagg whatever" to Me-262 is pretty severe though, seems like there should be more aircraft superior to the 262, yet inferior to the Lagg. Just my opinion.

There were. I just didn't think it was necessary to list the fighters built by countries like Zimbabwe, Nepal, Bolivia and France.

Why would you insult Zimbabwe, Nepal, and Bolivia like that?

Obviously Zimbabwe, Nepal, Bolivia, and a gaggle of other countries produced better combat aircraft than the hapless Germans, .......but France? That might be a stretch Skychimp, and raises serious concerns about the validity of your findings.

You never seen a Bloch? Sweet, sleek fighter of uncompromising quality. The only time the Germans moved up on the list was when they flew one themselves:

I stand corrected, forgive my ignorance and doubt http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif. The Dewoitine D.510 was clearly superior to anything the Germans could throw against it.

Lol.Chimp ! You are funny , how many votes did you get and where :-)) But we all know that you are just trying to provocate us.

I'm a bit worried about your maturity and mental balance. You shouldn't try to proof
things like this...

But I agree with you , P-51 was one of the best
in the end of the war.

And we are lucky that LW had such a poor planes , -with better planes they had achieved
much higher amount of aerial victories and maybe still rule the world. And we all had to drive Volkswagen :-))

If Axis had won the war Mercedes, BMW, Audi, WW, Toyota, Honda, Suzuki, Subaru, Kawasaki, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Alfa-Romeo would rule the roads through superiority of performance, quality, style and cost efficiency over US built vehicles. Driving a Mercedes, BMW or Audi would be considered as status simbol in US.

Oh wait...who won the war anyway? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I thought the Yak series was Nepalese! Best description of a (4 legged) yak was a Highland coo crossed with a rottweiler - quote Mike Harding.

BTW, my dad is a gurkha, and if Nepal had made planes like it made infantrymen, this debate wouldn't be funny - lol just my biased opinion!!!

I feel omission of the BP Defiant from it's rightful position above both pony and jug shows shameless favouritism though...

Hm, but on second thought, considering german pilots when fought allied on equal terms were capable to beat them at least 2v1 on most occasions, nazis were probably not that wrong, claiming germans were uber-people, were they?
