Lets assume that somewhere over Italy these two combatants met. Creature comforts aside (where the P 38 lacked without the heating system), which plane would you prefer to be flying? Why? I would take the P 38 because once I had a good deflection shot or direct line of fire on the Bf109, it would all be over (depending on where I shot). I don't claim to be an expert on how dog fights turn out, so what do you guys think? Would the G10 or K4 simply outfly and out-gun the P38, or would the P38's central amament spell the downfall for another German fighter?
