Chinese and North Korean-piloted MiGs seem to have been no match for the F-86s of the USAF, which is probably why the F-86 v MiG 15 kill ratio edged upward in favor of the F-86 during 1952-53; before then, the MiGs were piloted almost exclusively by Soviet pilots.

I don't know the exact answer, but I'd bet it has to do with the calibre of the pilot.

As Yeager says - it was the man and not the machine when dealing with the F-86/MiG-15 match-ups.
