Depends who is doing the "fearing" possibly true for Polish, French and other civilians.-Absolutely ridiculous. "...the Ju-87 is the most feared WW2 German aircraft."
-Absolutely ridiculous. "...the Ju-87 is the most feared WW2 German aircraft."
The Ju-87 was probably one of the most successful – if not the most successful – anti-shipping aircraft in the European theatre, certainly against military ships at least.
This was a quote from the article:The KI-84-I was a formidible fighter at low and medium altitudes and was able to operate high enough to intercept B-29 is.
It was well armed, fast with a good rate of climb and extremely dangerous in the hands of a good pilot.
It could match anything the Allies had (along with the KI-100 and N1K2-J) but like Germany, did not make enough fast enough to have any difference in the air war.
In other words, the writer thought the aircraft was only good at high altitude and performed less well down low."Given larger numbers of Ki-84s and crews, the Pacific campaign would have been longer. All things being equal, the Ki-84 Hayate could turn, climb, and accelerate faster than US F4Us. Only at low altitudes was the Japanese fighter disadvantaged."
Pretty much and sadly, it creates a considerable amount of confusion due to poor research and embellishment.I think a lot of these freelancer writers are just cranking the garbage out in order to pay the bills.
