Re: F-84s vs MiGs

Any idea what the F-84s lost/damaged by Migs were 'tasked' for? I know for a short while they tried to use them as Escort/Air Superiority but the performance differential was just TOO great & they were relegated to ground attack/close support work; As I understood it, later in the war F84 pilots didn't encounter Migs too often during their 'mud moving' duties & the Migs were somewhat 'loath' to leave high altitudes where their performance was at their best.

PS: of course that also means I might well be wrong in my recollections.
