    I have been repeatedly asked to post my file of WWII aces scores, so here it is.

    I worked on this a LONG time and got the data from many sources. I can't tell you where all the numbers came from as far as primary source data goes, but it's the best I have right now.

    The British folks in here may take some issue with the top scores, but the unusual names at the top include V-1 kills. Feel free to remove the V-1 killers if you like and the list will be more in line with what you expected.

    I still have a few more countries to go ... when I get the inclination to continue.

    - Greg

    You are welcome. I hope you find it useful or at least entertaining.

    I had NO IDEA that so many owed so much to so few re V-1s shot down!

    I believe the V-1's were not generally credited in WWII since the enemy had to be a manned aircraft to count. If you eliminate the V-1 kills, the British list trims down to what is usually shown in references.
