When I used the word 'perspective' I was referring to the attitude one has in their approach to flight simulation; not the difference's between various marks of aircraft. Further, I was speaking for myself in context.
Personally, while I enjoy historical research and develop pride in my knowledge of combat aviation I understand the limitations of the media involved. Again, so I'm clear; personally, I'd rather spend time with a sim that provides me with the 'feel' of the time period. If it does, and in my experience, very few sims have done that in the past 25+ years, the actual physical attributes of the aircraft involved (referring to distinctions by mark/type) mean very little to me.
