    On paper the Ta-183 would be superior providing the Germans could have gotten the thing to work as advertised.

    That's the thing about paper airplanes, no matter how 'advanced' they may seem...

    When ever they come into contact with a real plane, prop or jet, they're all just grist for the mill.

    IOW, confetti :)

    Why are we comparing the P-80 with an aircraft that never made it off of the drawing boards.

    Silverfish, you do know that the Ta-183 was never actually built correct?

    A better comparison would be the P-80 vs. Me 262. They were more contemporary with one another.

    Also Siliverfish, you can continue to open threads as long as they relevant. That is what a forum is for.

    No I am not adding a poll. If another mod wants to they may. If this was a true comparison of aircraft, then I would add one.
