The Unteroffizier fighter training manual talks about plane combinations for scout flights. This means it’s important to mix one or two planes during combat flights (2 x Alb. and 1 x DR1 or 3 x Alb. with 2 x DR1).
During a low turn engagements between an Alb. pilot with Pups and Camels (superior climb and turn rate) the enemy has much better change to shoot an Alb. pilot down.
But if there is 1 or 2 DR1 (superior climb and turn rate) in the mix with the enemy and the stable gun platform of the Alb. the success and survival of the flight will increase.
Mixing the planes will ensure that the pros of each Central Aircraft are used during engagement thus nullifying the cons of the Alb. and DR1.
Therefor JASTA 5 pilots need to become masters of all the central aircraft giving us a combative edge over the enemy.
