Table Air Combat: I-16 vs. Bf-109E

I found this neat graphic comparing the I-16 'Ishak' / 'Rata' with the Messerschmitt Bf-109E 'Emil' today, so thought I'd set up a game of Table Air Combat to see how they compare in action. The Bf-109E looks like it has the edge in most respects, apart from the all important turning circle radius, which could give the Soviet pilots a slight advantage, if they are able to use it. I'll probably deploy the generic Dogfight scenario as the basis of the game but perhaps with a few twists to make it a bit different? Whatever happens, I suspect the end result will probably look like this!
