This pursuit plane got credit for being the best Finnish fighter of World War II. It was registered in The Guinness Book of World Records twice: for shooting down 477 enemy planes, an average of nearly 11 victories per Brewster, and for a single fighter (hull No BW-393) shooting down a record 41 enemy planes
The kill ratio for the Brewster against the soviet planes was 67.5 to 1.
Brewsters were bought by Finland, and one was stuck heavily in combat, caught on fire, and was emergency landed into a lake. The pilot walked away, and hiked 20 kilometers tot he front lines to join his side in the battle... hiked through a mine field. http://heninen.net/brewster/english.htm
In 1998 the remains of the plane were discovered and pulled out of the lake.
Interesting historical sidenote, the Finnish didn't ordinarily nickname their planes, but a couple were funded by private citizens, or a company, and were given names of those. Noka and Tre Broder (Nokia and 3 Brothers) and they were rarely painted with anything but victory stripes, however, and I love this, one pilot used Karelia beer labels. That is cool.
