Right, but if it entered combat in ww2 it is on the listBasically you have four/five WW II fighters and a bunch of pre-WW II fighters that didn't get replaced quite soon enough.
Putting an aircraft down because it had been in service for 4-6 years before it saw combat seems more than a bit harsh.
Hmmm, which is worse, the P-26 or the Gloster Gauntlet(used for ground attack against the Italians) ?Right, but if it entered combat in ww2 it is on the list
I get what you are saying. meh... is it possible to erase options?Very few Boeing P-26s saw combat in WWII.
The few at Pearl Harbor, relegated to training, were all caught on the ground and destroyed.
The several USAAC P-26s in the Philippines were either caught on the ground during the attacks or destroyed by their crews before evacuating.
The few Philippine Air Force P-26s fared well against the Japanese, as did the Nationalist Chinese P-26s.
So why is this even on the list?

What is interesting, is that the P-26 (flown by Philippine Army pilots) did engage A6Ms and downed several during the battle of the Philippines.Peashooter vs. Roc, that would be an interest matchup. P-26 was
from a different era. The Roc came along later, and could not
get out of its own way.
