In technical terms, if the equivilent pilots were put in well maintained and well armed planes, the MiG would win. Simple, its specifications. The
F-16 wouldn't stand a chance, it'd be out gunned and out manouvered.
The reason the F-16 wins is becasue the US only invades countries that don't stand a chance. Their pilots are barley trained, the aircraft are in
terrible shape, and not properly armed. E.g: Iraq, etc.
Although, in the first Gulf War, a MiG-25 got the first A2A kill and escaped. Hehe. Go MiG-25 pilot, you'll probably get bombed in your house in a
On the note of the Korean war: The true kill ratio was about 4-1 to the Americans. The 10-1 kill ratios or above were blatant propagandarising to
account for the early US losses and make people feel better. FAct is, at the start of the war, the Koreans had dominance because the Sabre wasn't out
there. The Sabre soon took over though, with better trained pilots. The best pilots flying for the Koreans were acctually Russian, truth be known.
Vietnam was a mad air war, two true greats if you ask me. The MiG-21 and F4 battling it out.
