Hartmann was the most successful fighter ace of all time.
But Marseille was, perhaps, the best fighter ace of all time.

Is it better to brazenly engage in suicidal dogfights and win, or to avoid such risky engagements altogether?
>>
>>3924844
Probably better to avoid them. Hartmann outlived the war after all. Also, it's hard to really compare everyone. Hartmann was highest scoring but I think some could compete. Juutilainen or Saburo Sakai were both pretty darned good in their respective theaters as well. Sakai had to go against an enemy who was quite frankly just much tougher in the sky that Hartmann or Juutilainen had to though.

don't underestimate late war soviets. Hartmann joined the eastern front after the initial campaign started when air combat victories were their easiest.

>>3924844
as much fun as it is to gain the advantage and best an opponent in a dog fight, the risk of losing your energy and being susceptible to their reinforcements means that the hit and run boom and zoom tactic is much much better overall. Though booming and zooming in ambush is also its own satisfaction. in short, in a one vs one honor duel then dogfighting of course, but on the battlefield boom and zoom.

I think that's fair.

Hartmann, Barkhorn, and Rall racked up incredibly high scores. But they fought in a particular time and place. if you put any of the other super-aces in their position -- a kill-rich environment on the Eastern Front while flying over 1,000 sorties -- those others would likely have done just as well.

Hartmann scored 352 victories in 800 combat engagements during 1,600 total missions. That's one kill per four missions, and one kill per two contacts. That's a good record, but not an exclusively good record. A few dozen other pilots had kill-to-contact ratios that were even better. Hartmann just flew a lot of missions.

You could also argue though that making more missions put you into more danger, that and late war soviet swarm was really something in the air as well. Still all the arguing is rather moot point with how they're all aces in the end, made by their own personal theatres where they succeeded and those who perished trying.
I think though from a factual point Rudel is probably most successful in terms of just how much financial and time related damage he did to opposition.

I guess I came into the show with the "wrong" expectations. From the first three episodes, I thought that Lynne's antitank rifle was the only weapon that could (reliably) pierce Neuroi armor. So I based my expectations about combat tactics from that assumption, and it hyped up my expectations for Lynne. I had outsized expectations for her tactical role and character arc.

Turns out that I was completely wrong.

Part of it can just be where you are as a consumer.
Strike Witches kicked off my anime phase right after finishing school a couple years ago and my first 5-6 months with the medium I'd routinely blow through multiple seasons in the span of a day or two.
These days I'm hard pressed to watch more than an episode at a time and even then it's usually something currently airing; my backlog is pretty much frozen in place unless I'm particularly motivated to make progress on something.

Apparently Hartmann and Pokryshkin (Sasha) were aware of each others' activities during the air war. They studied each other's battle strategies. Both ended up developing "boom-and-zoom" tactics, attacking swiftly from higher altitude to swoop in and blast the enemy at impossibly close range.

There's no record of them actually coming into contact with each other, though.

Hartmann has a story:
>It should be said that the Soviets knew who we were by name. We knew a lot of their pilots, too. I knew of Pokryshkin, Morosov, Litvyak, and the like. Barkhorn and I were in the fight where Litvyak was killed, it seems. The date seems correct, as does the location. But I never claimed that victory.

Binge watching when you really get into something feels so good, it definitely has become tougher with age but few weeks ago I got around continuing One Piece from where I left it at half a decade ago and man, I watched something like 140 episodes in a week and caught up to recent arc's start which made me redo the feat I only last time did in teen years. Was fun seeing the cast for next few days in dreams too, especially Nami.
As for aviation, god I miss when I started War Thunder decade ago, such a different time, back when it was actual WWII game, I miss it so much. I learned everything from it, otherwise I would've had recommended that to you.

20 sounds about right, they were also edited episodes that combined two episodes in one cutting filler away, roughly 30min per one on average. And yeah finishing major arcs that way is the only way for me to enjoy adventure shows.
Make sure to watch what you can, the cup will be over before you can blink.
