I am a bit confused.... if the german airforce was destroyed at the BOB.... why did england have to bomb at night? And how did Americans lose half their bombers in daytime raids?
But..... speculate all you want... there was only one actual battle between Hogs and ponies.... . at the end of the war we sent both to central and south American countries. In one of the constant wars those guys had.... one side had ponies and the other hogs. There was only one dogfight but the hog won.
Night bombing was because 1, it was only mostly destroyed, and 2, it was a lot harder to aim all those 88mm flak guns at night.
