    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.

    Although the did well in Korea, both obsolete - the F4U and AD flew more missions, delivered more ordanance and were a lot more robust....

    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....
