Just as a note WW2 sky battles were won by AA, you need to look at the military reports, not the newspaper propaganda of the period. As an example the most "victories" achieved in the battle of britain were achieved by the AA of the royal navy not the RAF. Ground effectiveness of the airforce in the normandy campaign (where total air dominance was achieved) found the a2g effectiveness was 10% of that claimed by the airforce (see falaise pocket). Vietnam and Desert Storm examples are misleading at the best because of the massive technological differences between the two forces. Afghanistan just look at the difference in the effectiveness of ground forces against air from before and after the CIA provided the afghans with g2a launchers in the period the afghans were resisting the russians. Just my 2 cents.
