Is there a book that condenses all of the fighter comparisons/combat evaluations/mock dogfights?

    Have a look at Eric Brown's "Duels in the Sky"
    • ISBN-10: 1853100463
    • Naval scenarios, but the nearest I know of.

    Thank you Chris. I have that book. I was looking for official tests like the one I posted above.

    Not a book, but there is a number of comparison tests here.

    I presume you've seen the "Report of Joint Fighter Conference: NAS Patuxent River, MD, 16-23 October 1944"?

    Thank you Buffnut453, I just got that one a few weeks ago. I was actually a bit disappointed in that book. I thought it was a series of flyoffs between all the major fighters, but it turned out to be just a big chat session. Some interesting stuff, but not what I expected.
