I've no idea on how much if any of this is any more than artists' conceptions; I'd rule out the airplane with the battleship turret and the plane attacking the flying saucer apriori, but the rest of the images are interesting to say the least.

@gungasnake,
As was learned in WWII, there were fighters , and there were targets. I think this thing would make a wonderful target.

@farmerman,
The version in the picture appears to be a heavier than air version of a zeppelin, and not a warplane. Other than that, the bulk of the German fighters which were lost in WW-II were shot down by B-17s.

A Russian dreadnought-class aircraft in a dogfight with a Nazi flying saucer.

I believe this is the dictionary definition of "AWESOME."
