The Communists catching up

During the Great Purge of the 1930's, thousands of ranking Russian party, military, and intelligentsia members were removed from society-either to labor camps or permanently. The resulting loss of man and brainpower hampered the Soviet Union's progress in terms of aviation. The Chaika would have been an enormous breakthrough in 1919. However, it was produced in 1939. Despite exceptional maneuverability and firepower, it suffered badly against state-of-the-art German aircraft.
