Fighter Speed & Damage Unfair Advantage

OK, so this has bothered me for a while since I am a student of history.  So I did some research on cruise speed, top speed of the fighters listed for Japan and the U.S.  What I found confirmed my suspicion.  The U.S. fighters are given a 28% boost in speed, while the Japanese were given a 13% penalty.  This results in a whopping 41% difference from reality.  I know it's just a game and maybe it's compensated on the damage and HP.  But when one pass from the 5 American fighters can down 18 Japanese fighters, something is off.

the speed has nothing to do with that kill rate! That is the strafe mechanic used very well

If you take the damage per second you should not be able to knock out 2 squadrons of planes in 1 second, strafe or not, it's just not feasible.  The designers have severely handicapped the Japanese CVs.

To be honest Wargamming is falls on the game balance side of the game balance v historical accuracy argument. Which is where this comes from.
