I've been testing different decks and so far been quite successful with the East German MiG-29 as it comes with reasonably idiot proof F&F missiles that can shoot down most aircraft without me being required to keep the aircraft pointed towards the enemy. This has been working reasonably well until ended up face-to-face with a Eurofighter.
I figured that given the superior speed and high real life turn-radius for the Eurofighter my guesstimate was that there would be no point in trying to engage it in a turning battle. Our weapons are equivalent but the Eurofighter got more of them and is also a faster aircraft so my guesstimate was that the best would be if we both lost our aircraft in a head on fight. The net result was however a dead MiG-29 and a very much alive Eurofighter along with people politely* pointing out that it was a bad move on my behalf. There is a small ECM difference (40 vs 50 %) between the aircraft but otherwise it should be a roughly equivalent fight given the missiles available and rapidly diminishing closing distance.
So apparently ASF superiority is hard to estimate from the public stats and I would appreciate advice on.
1) Which ASF units are the best.
2) How do you best try to save your ASF when facing a better one?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
Alex Reynoso: I am looking for a Naval Museum that might display some of my father's WWII Navy items. I have a scaled model of a PBM-3 that he was a crew member of I believe crew #3. Thanks. email@example.com

Jim Broshot: Since nobody has responded in the last month and a half. The only Naval Museums I have ever been to are in Oregon: Tillamook Air Museum (housed in an old blimp hanger, used to be a Naval Air Museum but seems to have gotten away from that specialty. http:/

Jim Broshot: And its not a Naval Museum but an Aviation Museum and I have seen models displayed in its exhibits, the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in Mcminnville www.evergreenmuseum.org/

dcamp: Probably a dumb answer, but Naval Aviation Museum, Pensacola, FL?

Kersh: Tillman's book "The Forgotten Fifteenth" has an account of this attack that may be of interest.
