    Ok, my last request was a major flop so maybe you guys can help me with this one. I was wondering about 'kill' totals for different fighter planes in WWII (and it should make for some interesting discussions about fighter effectiveness). I would really like to see numbers on the American fighters but numbers on any major fighter would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Brewster B-239 (Finnish Air Force) 472 kills by 44 planes and 83 pilots

    Can't help myself - those numbers are so impressive :)

    I haven't found kill ratio's for all planes, but here's the one on my favorite, the Corsair.

    2140 kills
    189 losses
    Kill ratio - 11:1


    I also found this one

    The Grumman F6F Hellcat
    5156 kills
    Kill ratio - 19:1

    Finnish Bf 109Gs had quite a good kill ratio too :

    Bf 109Gs shot down total of 663 enemy aircraft while losing 32 fighters in combat or to anti-aircraft fire.

    That makes a kill ratio of 21:1

    Yes, and last night (or at least the show was broadcasted in Finland last night) Conan apologized all finns (because he got A LOT of postcards from Finland) and that was part of the apology.

    Now all Swedish people can send hatemail to Conan. 8) :lol: :D

    But... back to business. Which is FAF and their victory ratios of course :)

    Fokker D.XXI - 191 victories, 16 losses - 12:1
    Fiat G.50 - 101 victories, 5 losses - 20:1
    Morane-Saulnier M.S. 406 - 135 victories, 18 losses - 7.5:1
    Curtiss Hawk 75 A - 190 victories, 15 losses - 12:1

    And that seems to cover the most important finnish fighters.
