Just my opinion- The red Air Force was total garbage when the Germans invaded, which produced outrageous kills for the Luftwaffe, like multiple aces with 200+ victories. Eventually, lend lease and the Russians own industry provided fighter aircraft capable of adequate performance. In the west, we are generally taught that anything produced by communism is inferior (well, at least 30 years ago).
