Score manipulation on short missions

If the realism settings are changed within the first 30 seconds of the mission, they can modify the score in both ways (up and down, while changing these settings later can only lower the score). So in a dogfight mission with few enemy planes (typically, a single ace), you can quickly complete the mission in easy settings (keep shooting towards the enemy with unlimited ammo and jams disabled) then switch to the hardest settings, getting as many points as if you'd complete the mission in this high difficulty level.
