More info

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range fighter with piston engine, used in World War II, the Korean War and other conflicts. During World War II, Mustang pilots claimed they shot down 4,950 enemy aircraft, second only to the Grumman F6F Hellcat fighters among the Allies.

The Mustang was conceived, designed and built by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a specification of Great Britain. The NA-73X prototype first flew on 26 October 19401. The game was originally designed to use the engine Allison V-1710, certified for low altitudes, and flew operationally for the first time with the Royal Air Force (RAF) British in the air reconnaissance missions and ground attack. The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin produced under license, and armed with six machine guns Browning M2 .50 (12.7mm).

From the end of 1943, the P-51B (and also P-51D since mid-1944) were used by the USAAF Eighth Air Force to escort heavy bombers on missions over Germany. Already the RAF and the USAAF's Ninth Air Force used the Mustangs powered with Merlin as fighter-bombers, helping to consolidate the Allied air superiority in 1944. The P-51 was also used in other Allied fronts, such as North Africa, Mediterranean and Italy, as well as limited service against Japan in the Pacific War.

At the beginning of the Korean War, the Mustang was the main fighter used by the United Nations until the jet fighters, including the F-86, occupy their place, with the Mustang came to be used as fighter-bomber to attack the ground. Despite the emergence of jet fighters, the Mustang remained in service with some air forces until the early 1980. After the Second World War and the Korean War, many Mustangs were converted for civilian use, especially air racing.
