Re: Rene Fonck's air to air claims

As I see it there is no point in hanging out any of the WW I aces, especially on the Allied side.

If you do, you would probably find that all major aces overclaimed quite a bit, not least on the British/Commonwealth side.

To try and verify German losses is impossible unless you can come up with a verified list of all aircraft
losses suffered by the Luftstreitkräfte.
At this stage we don't even know the exact production figures for many of the years.

Neither are the French losses known and I bet our French members cannot come up with a complete SFA number
list for all their aircraft built nor a complete loss list either.
We have some but far from all!
