Interesting! The Zero does pretty well against much later fighters.

If anyone is interested in this sort of thing, check out Greg's Airplanes and Automobiles (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCynGrIaI5vsJQgHJAIp9oSg) YouTube channel. He goes into a lot of detail about various aircraft, including a great series on the P-47.

Oh and he has this one tip on theater popcorn. Cardiologists hate him.

Wow, this line!

‚Äč"2. RECOMMENDATIONS:

That all pilots entering the theater of action where the Zero can be expected, be instructed in the following:

1. Never attempt to dog fight the Zero." 

Great find, besilarius!
