Thanked 1,522 Times in 1,123 Posts many TURBO-charged WWII fighter aircraft were there compared to SUPER-charged WWII fighter aircraft? Uh, one, the P-38 Lightning!

...(with all due respect to the Hallmark Cards™ slogan):

"...when you absolutely NEED maximum HP, use SUPER-charging."
"...when you absolutely NEED maximum FE, use TURBO-charging." brown-washing better than green-washing?
