Who would be the favorite in a dogfight? The Bearcat is said to have set new standards in manoeuverability and climb rate, the Fw 190Ds and Spits have always been known for their agility.
Say let's take the best performing versions of them, F8F-2, Fw 190D-13 (or maybe Ta 152C with half the fuel?) or Spitfire Mk 21. Would be nice if you could go into detail with the pros and cons for the contenders.
