correct me if im wrong, but their jet engines lasted about 10(?) minutes before it was useless and the pilot would have to eject, however, they would launch it when an enemy air craft was clse to the base and it would reek havoc on the Americans/British/whoever was attacking

Total and utter nonsense, with no basis in fact.
They'll be saying next that the F-15 is based on the Bf 109

( don't you hate it when websites go down for a time) I was going to post a website that compared them but it is down for some reason.
