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.

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."

Also most MiG15 losses were flown by non Soviet pilots who were not as well trained as Soviet pilots.

Re: Korean War Aircraft Loss Database

Well, Chinese Air forces was largely a fledgling forces that was unable operate independently, and that was the reason they usually did not operate beyond the border area, so called "MIg Valley", though it was very much possible that Chinese and North Korean suffered higher losses rate per operations, the majority of Mig-15 encounter by Sabers were flew by Soviet pilots
