The only change I would make is to swap the F84 for the Meteor for ground attack.

I was thinking about that - I chose the F-84 because I felt it was a little more advanced than the Meteor. I also read accounts of Russian Korean War Vets who gave the F-84 commendable marks....
 
True and understandable. However in those hot and high conditions the extra power must help when carrying a heavy load.
Book figures in ideal conditions often bare little resembalance to reality in places like Korea. None of the early jets could be said to have a abundance of power and the extra thrust would have been welcome.

They both carried around 2000ib bombs but I would prefer the 4 x 20 compared to the 6 x HMG.

Agree - especially for ground attack or for dealing with a Mig.

I gotta call it as I see it - the AD could carry 2x it's weight in ordenance - The F4U, despite being a WW2 holdover was employed in ground attack and as a nightfighter and accounted for several kills....
