Re: Korean War Aircraft Loss Database

Been there seen that. I would say it has about 99% of US losses but there are gaps in the FAA losses.

Re: Korean War Aircraft Loss Database

Perhaps this site can help. The FAA is at the bottom of the page.

Re: Korean War Aircraft Loss Database

And here is mention of a post-war study I had not heard of before.


"Many years after the war, a study by the U.S. Air Force, code named Sabre Measure Charlie, downgraded the F-86 Sabre-versus-MiG-15 “kill ratio” from more than 14 to 1 to a revised figure of 7 to 1. The latter figure remains the best achievement in any fighter campaign in history prior to Operation Desert Storm."

Didn't the F6F and Finnish B-239s have a better ratio?

Fighter v Fighter, I am not so sure. The F6F had the advantage of outnumbering an inexperienced & technically outclassed force but the Sabers were not only outnumbered, (at least, early on ) but I think a MiG-15 actually had a technical advantage on the Saber (operational ceiling, I think?);

It is a little complicate in the case of Sabers vs Mig-15, on the one hand Sabers were outnumbered by Mig-15s, but on the hand, since Soviet Mig-15s were not allowed to operate beyond the Chinese-Korean border region, so Sabers usually hold the initiative, they can choose where to hit and when to strike
