Yep. Just for the record(and somewhat offtopic), the Israeli Ace with most kills is Colonel Gyora Even(Epstien) with 17 kills. He is also, as far as I know, the world leader in Jet Vs. Jet kills.

Pilot Hartman hands down as a pilot. the red Baron was very good but alot of his kills where against unarmed British aircraft. Rudel for achievement but he was lucky.

Doppleganger, the best armor commander is General MacArthur? Please do tell me all about his major armor battles because I long to hear these stories!

Well, I have found this forum very entertaining, as many of these entries appear to be directly from a National Lampoon Edition on Military Leaders of History.

Hang on a minute David! I think you've got me confused with IrishWizard.

"Armor: Heinz Guderian, father of the Panzerwaffen and Blitzkrieg - needs no further introduction. "

I picked Guderian.

You're correct and I stand to be corrected - my remarks should have been directed to IrishWizard.

Irish Wizard appears to be non-responsive, so I'd let it go.
