MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1981 BOTTHEVrLLR (ARK.) COURIER PAOT mn Better U.S. Airmanship Keeps Allies Ahead in Korean Duels WASHINGTPN, Sept. 24. (ft — Better American airmanship, in- 1 ttead of airplanes, is keeping the VS. ahead in the almost daily duels with Soviet-made Jet fighters in 4l|ir I^rce -headquarters here said today that /from last February, when the first enemy Jet was shot down, through Sept. 11, the air •core in Korea has been this: MIG-ISs shot down—72. United Nations lets destroyed— This Is a .curiously lonsidcd score, particularly so In view of communi- que reports indicating that many perhaps a majority, of all the air encounters have involved superior numbers of the Red jets. The testimony of both American pilots who fight the MIGs and of high officials here who now have hid opportunity to sec technical engineering reports °n the enemj lets (presumably based in part 01 study of at least one crashed 01 captured MIG) is that the MIG is •n excellent airplane. It Flies as Fast It can, say the'pilots and technical analysts, fly as fast and maneuver as well as the best of American Jets in operation in Kcrea, although-not as well as jet fighters itill in the development stage or in. actual production at home, In firepower, the MIG can shoot heavier caliber weapons, but the American can fire faster, so that seems :o balance. Gunnery I« Superior In answer to questions, the Air Force says these factors are why the Red fliers are being shot down: 1. "Superior gunnery by U.K. pl- lote." (It is possible that in addition to shooting better, U-S. pilots have, in this instance, an advantage of better design. Some reports say the MIG-15s use an obsolete type of gunsight. popular in World War II but inadequate for the fast action, high speed flight of Jet plane combat.) 2. "Many O.N, pilots are World War II combat veterans and ace-s while it is doubtful that many of the enemy pilots have had similar or equal experience." (There is a genera! belief, although not yet proved, that Russian pilots may fly some of the MIGs In the Korean action with others piloted by Russian-trained Asiatic Communist.'!.) Same Units Maintained 3. "The U.N. hns maintained the same units in Korea. On the other hand, the varied techniques and tactics of the enemy suggests that different units are put Into fights." (Thi* could reflect a shifting of units with consequent loss of com bat experience, as the Air Force says, or mean that the Soviet tu tors are trying out new combat, idea* in an effort to find weakness- in the U.N. air combat patterns.)
