Cobra is actually really good air to air combat plane. You have to use it's good abilities for your advantage. Like Cobra is fast, can climb hard and can take more shots before powering out or leaking fuel like other planes.
Take some altitude and gain energy, use that to boom and zoom on a plane and regain that altitude. FW are poor to climb and will stall before you 9/10 times when you can swoop back in for an easy kill.
Against Thunderbolt you should try to gain speed, attack it from below or behind. Thunderbolt has really poor armor and will start to leak fuel or lose power from few rounds, after you have damaged it it becomes easy target.
In a fight with multiple planes shoot one few times so it starts to leak and lose power, then attack the next one and so on. That way you don't have to face them all at the same time by forcing one or two on ground to repair.
ps. tell friendly pilots if you see plane so they can help you and try to have a wingman.
