    Maybe we'll never know. I have read a lot that the pilots really liked the .50's.

    Hmmm, claims and proof are two different things gents. As chimp stated this was over the course of a month, when Jugs and other allied planes were allowed to free hunt.It is very likely that those numbers are accurate. Also other countries in modern times have had their ground and air forces smashed by US airpower...
