A more or less daily photoblog with favorites of my photographs. Subjects are typically nature, landscape, astrophotos, existing light.
look at that, look at that , loook at thattt!now if you wanted to be fair, you should've captured 3 Mig picture for every Phantom!
You should realize that the kill ratio of MiGs for Phantoms in Vietnam was about 10-1. I'd rather fly and f-16, though....
Do you know how many Migs can you build by a price of one Phantom? you can build 25 of them!!!you only heard of few numbers during the Viet war. But you are not considering the fact that for each fight between Mig21 and Phantom, Migs were outnumbered by at least 1.6 times. On the other hand pilots who flew Mig's we're not trained as much as us pilots. So these constraints have much more effect on the kill ratio rather than the actual ratio value.However, despite the later design and technology of Phantom, many simulations show that Mig21s are superior given equal number of fighters and equal training of the pilots.Another thing you should be thinking is, the actual same generation competetors of Mig21s are F-104 and Dassault Mirage IIIs. Now we can talk about real kill ratios during Indo-Pak war.Later Migs like Mig23 and Mig27 will easily take down your f-15s. And Mig29s will be no mercy for f-16.To sum up, the USAF fighter jet developments really s***. aaaahahahhahahaha
